What is Radial Pressure Wave ( Shock Wave) Therapy?
Radial Pressure Waves (RPW) are acoustic waves that generate oscillations in the tissue. 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 to improve pain in various musculoskeletal conditions.
What does RPW feel like?
Patients may report feeling soreness and a thumping sensation when the treatment head passes over dysfunctional 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.
How long do treatments last?
About 10 minutes.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally 4-6 treatments, potentially 8.
