New practice manual provides update on mechanisms of action and indications of extracorporeal shock wave therapy


»Enthesopathies – Knowledge Update« by Ulrich Dreisilker, the 11th volume in the successful reference book series »Shock Wave Therapy in Practice«, will be published in November 2020 (Level10 publishing house). This is a new edition of the author’s reference work entitled »Enthesiopathien/Enthesopathies«, now considered a classic in the field of orthopaedic shock wave therapy.

A growing evidence base concerning the mechanisms of action of shock wave therapy resulted in the decision to revise and expand the earlier book. The updated and fully illustrated edition presents technological innovations and new treatment indications. It offers valuable advice for both newcomers to the field and advanced users.

Dr Ulrich Dreisilker is a specialist in orthopaedics, sports medicine and chirotherapy. He has been administering shock wave therapy for more than 25 years and was instrumental in its development. Dreisilker is co-founder of the DIGEST e.V. – the German-language Society for Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy – and was formerly its president and a member of its board of directors.
