A cutting edge medical treatment using high energy sound waves to treat various conditions.
Many patients are looking for non-invasive and effective treatments when managing chronic pain and injuries. Radial shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that has become increasingly popular at Rehab Wellness LA for treating various musculoskeletal conditions.
There are two main types of radial shockwave therapy, focussed and pressure wave therapy. Focused radial shockwave therapy uses a single shockwave with a high energy level focused on a specific point in the body. It is typically used to treat localized pain, such as heel pain or tennis elbow. Radial pressure wave therapy uses multiple shockwaves with a lower energy level that spread out over a larger area of the body. It is typically used to treat larger areas of pain, such as back or shoulder pain. Your Rehab Wellness medical professional may prescribe one of these forms of Radial Shockwave to help you manage your pain or injury.
Radial shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves applying high-energy acoustic waves to damaged tissues. The waves stimulate the body’s natural healing process and increase blood flow to the affected area. This promotes new tissue growth, which can help reduce pain and improve mobility.
Radial shockwave therapy can be used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including:
Radial shockwave therapy can be an effective treatment option for these conditions, especially if they have not responded to traditional medical treatments.
Radial shockwave therapy is a non-invasive procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes to perform. The patient may receive a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated. Then, a handheld device is used to deliver the shockwaves to the affected area. Patients may feel mild discomfort or pressure during the procedure.
After the procedure, patients may experience some soreness, stiffness, and swelling in the treated area. This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
The number of radial shockwave therapy treatments required varies depending on the condition and the patient’s response to treatment. Typically, patients receive a series of treatments spaced out over several weeks or months.
Radial shockwave therapy is a safe and effective non-invasive treatment option for many musculoskeletal conditions that cause chronic pain and injury.
