Laughter may be the best medicine, but it sure can't touch kidney stone
pain no matter what anyone may say.

Very informative video:
Have you ever wondered how lithotripsy works?
Featuring: Ed Bowles from Valdese, NC - Burke County.
"At Blue Ridge HealthCare's Valdese
Hospital, Piedmont Stone Center's Ed Bowles takes us on a tour of the
lithotripsy truck. On board, high-tech gear helps pinpoint kidney
stones, and focused energy waves triangulate and target the stones and
bust them into small dust that can pass through the urinary tract."
How pain relievers work:
From the TedEd video lecture series. "Some people take aspirin or ibuprofen to treat everyday aches and pains,
but how exactly do the different classes of pain relievers work? Learn
about the basic physiology of how humans experience pain, and the
mechanics of the medicines we've invented to block or circumvent that

Kidney Stone Treatment with Lithotripsy
Extra corporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy is a technique for treating
stones in the kidney and ureter that does not require surgery and is an
outpatient, non-invasive option . Instead, high energy shock waves are
passed through the body and used to break stones into pieces as small as
grains of sand. Because of their small size, these pieces can pass from
the body along with the urine. Using x-rays or ultrasound to pinpoint
the location of the stones, the body is positioned so that the stones
are targeted precisely. About 1-2 thousand shock waves are needed to
crush the stones. The complete treatment takes about 45 to 60 minutes.
