How does it work?
We use radial shockwave therapy that delivers multiple low-energy acoustic soundwaves that penetrate as deep as 5cm into the tissues. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain.
This response both stimulates and accelerates the healing process by increasing blood flow to the affected area. Shockwaves may break down scar tissue, and possibly calcification as well. Transmission of pain is blocked by elimination of ‘substance P (a chemical process within the body that influences pain perception).
Radial ESWT provides a holistic, and non-invasive alternative to:
- Steroid injection
- Oral Medication
- Patient is normally satisfied within 5-10 minutes of treatment
