The publication covers a wide range of topics and indications – from peripheral nervous system disorders to spasticity and spinal ESWT. Another major focus is the application of shock waves to the brain (better known as Transcranial Pulse Stimulation (TPS)) in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. Based on current research and their own experience, TPS pioneers from around the world report on this new therapeutic option. Numerous colour illustrations and the clear structure facilitate understanding.
