Update on the efficacy of extracorporeal shockwave treatment for myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia - Chronic muscle pain syndrome is one of the main causes of musculoskeletal pathologies requiring treatment. Many terms have been used in the past to describe painful muscular syndromes in the absence of evident local nociception such as myogelosis, muscle hardening, myalgia, muscular rheumatism, fibrositis or myofascial trigger point with or without referred pain. 

Immunomodulation of Osseointegration Through Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy - Dental implants are a routine procedure within the therapeutic range of dentists. Many loading protocols are based on techniques and biological times that consider the biology of the host bed. However, early or late complications may occur, such as lack of osseointegration, peri-implantitis, and marginal bone loss.

Impact of extracorporeal shock-wave therapy on the stability of temporary anchorage devices in adults: A single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial - In this randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial, we investigated the effect of noninvasive extracorporeal shock waves on the stability of temporary anchorage devices (TADs) under orthodontic loading.

Impact of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on orthodontic tooth movement—a randomized clinical trial​ - ​s This randomized clinical trial investigated the effect of extracorporeal shock waves on the amount of orthodontic tooth movement and periodontal parameters.

Extracorporeal shockwave treatment impedes tooth movement in rats - Accelerated tooth movement has been a topic of interest for orthodontic research recently. Surgically facilitated orthodontic treatment has been shown to be an effective approach to accelerate tooth movement; however, it remains invasive, requires additional surgery, and may increase post-operative complications. In this study, we evaluate the effects of extracorporeal shockwave treatment (ESWT), a non-invasive approach to regenerate alveolar bone, on orthodontic tooth movement in rats.

​Extracorporeal shock wave therapy in periodontics: A new paradigm - The quest for exploring new frontiers in the field of medical science for efficient and improved treatment modalities has always been on a rise. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been enormously used in medical practice, principally, for the management of urolithiasis, cholelithiasis and also in various orthopedic and musculoskeletal disorders.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy induces alveolar bone regeneration - ​Periodontal inflammation with alveolar bone
resorption is a hallmark of periodontitis. We hhypothesized that extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) could promote the regeneration of alveolar bone following Porphyromonas gingivalis-induced periodontitis in rats.

Effects of low-energy shock waves on oral bacteria - ​We have recently demonstrated that extracorporeal
shock-wave therapy (ESWT) is effective in promoting the healing of dermal wounds and in regenerating alveolar bone lost through periodontal disease.

Effect of shockwave therapy on orthodontic tooth movement - ESWT delays orthodonic tooth movement in rats and promotes osteoblast and osteoclast differentiation.
