Radial Shockwave therapy uses intense soundwaves to stimulate blood flow and break up scar tissue and muscle and fascial adhesions. Shockwave therapy has been shown to heal and reduce pain in stubborn conditions such as tendinitis, capsulitis, and fasciitis. This technology uniquely complements manual therapy and exercises by accelerating the healing process.
Shockwave therapy can successfully treat conditions like tennis elbow, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), patellar tendinitis, rotator cuff pain, achilles tendinitis, hamstring tendinitis, and plantar fasciitis.
Technically called radial shockwave therapy (RSWT), this technique uses short, powerful bursts of sound to provide pain relief to muscles, joints, and the adhesions (scars) from injuries.
95% of people only need 3-4 treatment sessions. A typical session is about 15 minutes.
There are some places where this therapy should not be used, for example, vascular disease in the feet or ruptured plantar fasciitis ligaments.
People who are taking blood thinners and other medicines that interfere with blood clotting shouldn’t use them. Also, metal pins and plates don’t respond well to this therapy.
Effective for treating tendinitis, scar tissue, frozen shoulder
Resets muscle activation and intestinal treatments.
Radial Shockwave Therapy has amazing healing effects without ever opening skin or risk infection.
Similar to the way that lifting weights causes micro-traumas that the body then repairs, the shockwaves stimulate growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and new nerve cells (neurogenesis). In truth, no one is really 100% sure how it works, but the results have been well-documented in many double blind, peer-reviewed studies.
This type of therapy has proven to reduce pain significantly, without the use of drugs or surgery.
