Researchers have found that shockwave therapy (SWT) can improve respiratory function and alleviate the symptoms of COVID-19. In a study conducted in northern Italy, 53 out of 60 COVID-19 patients who received SWT showed improvements in lung function and a decrease in inflammation after only three sessions. The therapy works by delivering high-pressure acoustic waves that penetrate deep into the lungs and trigger a healing response, reducing inflammation and promoting the growth of new blood vessels. SWT is a non-invasive, painless, and low-risk treatment that could be a promising option for treating COVID-19 patients who suffer from respiratory issues.
