Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) uses strong energy waves to help breakdown masses of fiber and scar tissue in the body that can lead to painful, chronic conditions.
By generating shockwaves in the body that spread deep into muscle tissue, the result is increased blood circulation and a reduction of adhesions and limescale deposits. The stimulation of cell regeneration and faster healing time are just a couple of the reasons radial shockwave therapy is so effective.
The procedure is also used to treat orthopedic diseases such as the softening of tissue, as well as joint and bone pain caused by chronic inflammation and fascial adhesions. Although patients may experience discomfort during the treatments, the process doesn’t take long.
The clinical efficacy of the treatment has been proven by numerous studies on the following conditions:
- Calcified shoulder
- Calcaneal spur
- Achilles tendon problems
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Patellar tip syndrome
- Trigger points in fascia pain syndrome
