Radial Pressure Waves (RPW) also referred to as Radial Shockwave, offer a non-invasive treatment solution for long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies. Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern, while reducing pain and improving function. With very few negative side effects, Radial Pressure Wave therapy is indicated for conditions that are normally very difficult to treat, and is now widely used for many therapeutic and wellness applications.
Physical effects of radial pressure waves include: pain reduction (Gate Control theory), increased metabolism as shockwaves influence the tissues on a cellular level, revascularisation effect, where the renewed blood flow promotes tissue healing, regeneration and muscle tone recovery.
Please note: Highly practical elements, please bring suitable attire.
