1. A system for treating a tissue condition of a human or animal patient comprising:

  • an electronic acoustic pressure shock wave applicator including a shock wave generation source enclosed within liquid by a coupling membrane;

    an electronic controller coupled to the acoustic pressure shock wave applicator and including a microprocessor and a microprocessor-readable data storage medium having microprocessor-executable instructions for the microprocessor to adjust an initial treatment regimen based on the type of tissue condition and the treatment area or treatment volume, wherein the initial treatment regimen includes at least one of a number of shock waves per treatment, shock wave input energy per treatment and number of shock wave treatment sessions, to an adjusted individualized treatment regimen that changes the initial treatment regimen in response to inputs providing individualized patient parameters wherein each individualized patient parameter is selected from the group consisting of tissue condition state parameter, comorbidity parameter, physical characteristic parameter and lifestyle habit parameter of the patient, wherein said electronic controller is communicatively coupled for wireless or wired communication to the acoustic pressure shock wave applicator and causes the applicator to automatically generate the adjusted individualized treatment regimen to the patient; and

    an electronic input device receiving input data in response to questions from a patient questionnaire and communicatively coupled for wireless or wired transmission of the input data to the electronic controller for determination of the individualized patient parameters and corresponding changes to the initial treatment regimen to arrive at the adjusted individualized treatment regimen.
