RPW Shockwave Therapy
Radial Pressure Wave (Shockwave) therapy has proven to be beneficial in the treatment of chronic tendinopathies such as Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, tennis/golfers elbow and myofascial trigger points.
Radial shockwaves are introduced into the injured or painful tissues via a hand held unit and transmitter. The radial pressure waves have a pro-inflammatory effect, increasing blood flow to the area and encouraging the body’s natural healing process.
Studies have shown RPW Shockwave Therapy to be an effective alternative to surgical intervention.
