What is Radial Shock Wave Therapy?
Radial shock wave therapy originated in Europe during the mid-1980s, but it has not become commonly used within practice until recently due to the expensive nature of this technology’s creation. Initially, shock waves were developed for the medical purpose of treating kidney stones, but it was later discovered that there are several applications for health purposes.
A radial shock wave is not an electrical shock like one might imagine, rather it is an energy wave which is produced when an object reaches the speed of sound. A radial shock wave machine transmits high-energy, acoustic waves through the surface of the skin. These low and medium type waves are generated by air compressors and an applicator, which then spreads into the tissue of the affected area of the body.
What are the Benefits of Radial Shock Wave Services?
There are multiple health advantages to radial shock wave services. When radial shock wave therapy is performed, patients can expect a significant reduction in pain. Radial shock wave therapy increases metabolic activity around the treated area, which stimulates the reabsorption of irritated calcium deposits and body’s natural healing process. It causes the disintegration of fibrosis and improves the affected area’s function.
Radial shock wave therapy addresses an assortment of injuries, including tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, chronic back pain, cervical syndrome, frozen shoulder, patellar tendonitis, and lumbar syndrome. It enables patients to regain motion and become active once again.
