Diabetic Foot Ulcers Shockwave Therapy

Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs) are a feared complication among diabetic patients with ulceration, infection, and gangrene that may ultimately lead to risk of amputation. The ulcers can cause pain, discomfort, and reduced quality of life.

An effective therapy and appropriate foot care are important in wound healing in DFUs. Recently, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) has been reported to significantly promote and accelerate the healing of complex soft tissue wounds as compared to the standard methods of treatment in DFUs.

The study into the efficacy of ESWT among thirty-eight patients with 45 chronic DFUs showed ESWT-treated ulcers had a significant reduction in wound size and median time required for ulcer healing. It is more effective than Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in wound healing of diabetic foot ulcers.

The therapy improves wound healing and blood flow perfusion rates in diabetic foot ulcer. No side effects or no adverse reactions to shockwave therapy have been shown.

For the treatment of foot ulcers, we use the latest Swiss engineered shockwave equipment, the STORZ Duolith SD1 that allows us to beam focussed shockwaves to the areas being treated.

“Recently my mother was treated here with the shock wave therapy and physio for the diabetic ulcer on her foot. After seven sessions her wound has visibly diminished in size and the sensibility of the foot increased. We are very grateful to Nim and recommend people with the same condition to attend the treatment here.”
