Extracorporeal shock wave therapy in orthopaedics and traumatology is a relatively new treatment modality. The advancement of shock wave treatment has been quick in recent years. Shock waves have significantly altered therapy. Shock waves are now the treatment of choice for kidney and urethral stones. Urology has traditionally been the sole medical profession that uses shock waves. Meanwhile, shock waves have been utilised to treat insertion tendinitis, avascular necrosis of the head of the femur, and other necrotic bone changes in orthopaedics and traumatology. In veterinary medicine, another field of shock wave use is the therapy of tendons, ligaments, and bones. The basic theory and applications of shock waves, as well as their history in medicine, are discussed in this study. The goal of utilising shock wave treatment for orthopaedic disorders is to stimulate healing in the tendons, surrounding tissue, and bones. Shock waves have emerged as the preferred therapy for kidney and ureteral stones.
