What is Shockwave Therapy and how can it help you?

Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RPW) is a new high tech, non-invasive form of treatment which has been shown to be highly effective in treating chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment. Clinical research has shown that there is a 70-85% chance that Shockwave will improve your condition. Large clinical trails have shown that there are no series side effects or complications to this treatment.


How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwaves are short and intense energy waves that travel faster than the speed of sound. Shockwave therapy works by passing shockwaves into the affected tissues via a compressed air impulse exerted by the hand piece; this causes micro trauma, increases blood flow, and stimulates an acute inflammatory response, aiding and stimulating the healing process. Usually no more than 3-6 sessions are needed.


Does Shockwave Therapy Hurt?

There is usually only a small amount of discomfort during each Shockwave therapy treatment, but it really does depend on the level of pain a person is currently experiencing within that given area. If you are in pain during the treatment please notify your practitioner as there are some adjustments that can be made to reduce the discomfort, however, having some pain during the treatment illustrates that shockwaves are having a positive effect.
