WHAT IS Shockwave Therapy?
Radial Pressure Waves (RPW) are acoustic waves that generate oscillations in the tissue.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Radial pressure wave therapy helps reduce muscle pain and activate connective tissue, temporarily aid in the increase of blood flow, and help in the treatment of tendinitis in hips and shoulders and helps improve pain in various musculoskeletal conditions.
What does shockwave therapy feel like?
Patients may report feeling soreness and a thumping sensation when the treatment head passes over dysfuncational tissues. Patients report feeling very little discomfort when it actively travels over healthy tissue. The level of discomfort depends on the area being treated, the settings on the device, and the acuity of the condition. Minor post-treatment soreness around the involved area is not uncommon.
