Radial Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy uses sound energy to treat musculoskeletal conditions. This treatment is administered using a handheld probe that is attached to a base. The sensation experienced during treatment is a strong, rapid, pulsating pressure emitted from the end of the probe at the site of the injury. The pressure waves go through the skin and are targeted at damaged tissues. Typically, shockwave will be administered for only a few minutes at a time, but results in long-lasting improvements in pain and function.
Shockwave Therapy can help to enhance new blood vessel growth, promote tissue healing, and reduce pain. It is especially effective in treating injuries of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and connective tissue.
