Radial Pulse Wave (Shockwave) Therapy Q & A

Radial Pulse Wave Therapy, also known as Shockwave Therapy, is an advanced non-invasive medical treatment that uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in various musculoskeletal conditions. It is a valuable addition to the range of treatments available at Elite Spine and Health Center.

Radial Pulse Wave Therapy is effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  1. Tendonitis: It can alleviate pain associated with conditions like Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, and patellar tendonitis.
  2. Plantar Fasciitis: Shockwave therapy is known for its effectiveness in treating plantar fasciitis, a common cause of heel pain.
  3. Calcific Shoulder Tendinopathy: It can break down calcium deposits in the shoulder tendons, reducing pain and improving mobility.
  4. Muscle and Ligament Injuries: Radial Pulse Wave Therapy can help in the healing of muscle and ligament injuries, such as sprains and strains.
  5. Chronic Pain: It is useful for chronic pain conditions like myofascial pain syndrome and lower back pain.
  6. Trigger Points: Shockwave therapy can target trigger points in muscles, providing relief from localized pain.

During a Radial Pulse Wave Therapy session, a device delivers acoustic waves to the affected area. These waves create microtrauma at the cellular level, stimulating blood flow and the body’s natural healing response. This leads to tissue regeneration, reduced inflammation, and pain relief.

Patients may experience a mild to moderate discomfort during the treatment, which is typically well-tolerated. The sensation is often described as a series of rapid pulses or tapping. Any discomfort experienced during the procedure is temporary, and patients usually feel relief after the session.

The number of sessions required depends on the specific condition being treated and its severity. Some patients experience significant improvement after just a few sessions, while others may require more extended treatment. Your healthcare provider at Elite Spine and Health Center will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
