Radial Shockwave Therapy

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave Therapy, otherwise known as Radial Pressure Waves (RPW) sends high-pressured acoustic shockwaves that travel through the skin to targeted tissue to reduce pain and stimulate tissue healing.

What conditions can Radial Shockwave Therapy treat?

Radio Shockwave Therapy is a great treatment for ongoing pain and stiffness due to tendonitis, as well as for muscular aches and pains. It has been proven effective in treating conditions that typical conservative management has failed in resolving. In particular it is used for;

  • Tendonopathy of the shoulder
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Hamstring Tendonopathy
  • Patella Tendonopathy
  • Elbow (Medial and or lateral epicondylitis)
  • Plantar fasciitis

How many treatments will I require?

This differs between individuals and various injuries. A typical course of treatment is between 4-6 sessions to get the desired results.

How does Radial Shockwave Therapy work?

  • Increases circulation and the supply of oxygen and nutrients for tissue
    healing
  • Stimulates collagen production and healing in injured tissue
  • Reduces substance P, which is a neurotransmitter and brain chemical that
    elevates pain receptors in the body. Shockwave therapy reduces the
    concentration of this pain-mediating chemical at the injury site.
  • Allows the patient to cope with painful areas more effectively.
