Benefits of Shockwave Therapy
Radial Pressure Wave (RPW) Therapy, or also known as Shockwave Therapy, is a treatment option that is noninvasive which means no surgeries. It’s also all-natural, meaning there is no medications involved. That means you can avoid prescriptions, medications, and invasive options to deal with your pain and injuries.
Shockwave Therapy is a treatment that can be used on many parts of the body. There is no need for any special preparation before the shockwaves are delivered. You will likely experience some relief from your symptoms after just one treatment, with additional treatments providing even more relief.
If you’re looking for an alternative treatment option to help relieve your pain and promote healing, shockwave therapy may be right for you.

- Plantar fasciitis

Is Shockwave Therapy Safe?
Shockwave Therapy is a very safe treatment option that is noninvasive and does not involve any medication. It is an excellent choice for those who are looking for an alternative to surgery or medications to treat injuries or pain points in your body.
Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?
Most people do not find shockwave therapy to be painful. You may experience some discomfort or soreness after treatment, but this is typically temporary and should subside within a few days.
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
Shockwaves work by creating an acoustic pressure shock that can help to break up calcium deposits, relieve muscle tension, and stimulate blood flow and collagen production. When shockwaves are applied to the body, they cause a micro-trauma to the tissue. This micro-trauma sets off a healing response that helps to reduce pain and inflammation, as well as promote natural healing.
The machine is designed to deliver shockwaves to the specific injured soft tissue. This helps to ensure that the shockwaves are effective in treating your condition. You will likely feel a pulsing sensation when the shockwaves are being delivered.
Shockwave therapy is a good option for those who are looking for an alternative to surgery or medication for treating injuries or pain points. It can be especially beneficial for those with chronic pain or inflammation.
