Radial Shockwave Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for soft tissue injuries. A Shockwave is a sound wave that passes through the body and is not an electrical pulse. Radial Shockwave Therapy is highly effective in treating chronic bursitis, tendinopathies, and muscular injuries.
Condition Suitable for Shockwave Therapy
Rotator Cuff Tendonitis
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
The treatment initiates a pro-inflammatory response in the tissue where the shockwaves have been applied. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity and blood flow around the site of injury – stimulating the body’s healing response. Shockwave Therapy breaks down scar tissue and calcified bodies within the muscles or tendons. In addition, Shockwave Therapy prevents pain signals from reaching the brain.
How Effective is Shockwave Therapy?
Clinical research has shown an overall result rate of 77% of chronic conditions that have not been cured with other kinds of treatment. Shockwave Therapy is a safe, non-invasive form of treatment. Large clinical trials have demonstrated shockwave’s effectiveness with little to no side effects or complications to this treatment.
Shockwave Therapy is normally recommended for patients who have already had previous conservative therapies that have provided little or no clinical benefit.
