Radial Pressure Wave Therapy is a non-invasive, deep tissue treatment using a sound wave machine. The machine head emits a low, safe frequency to relieve painful trigger points, relax muscles, improve motion and blood flow, and reduce the pain response in the body.
The sound head is glided over your tight or painful areas using ultrasound gel. The intensity and pressure of the machine can be adjusted to your tolerance and preference. Radial Pressure Wave Therapy can also help break up scar tissue and reduce inflammation. It stimulates your body’s natural healing response and even promotes new cell growth.
When it comes to getting rid of chronic pain, RPW Therapy can provide a natural alternative to surgery and/or highly addictive pain medications. Patients typically feel pain relief and improved mobility immediately following the first treatment.
After RPW treatment, plenty of rest and water consumption is recommended, and some mild soreness similar to post-exercise is normal. Most patients leave our clinic feeling looser, pain free and excited to get back to normal activities without restriction!
