Proven radial shock wave efficacy
Shock waves rather than injections or surgery-rediscover normal mobility! Are you among the many patients who are- suffer ing from chronic pain and have tried everything possible to get rid of its Injections, medication, physiotherapy, relaxation methods, and so forth. And hasn't your pain always returned after a short while, often worse than ever before.
Chronic pain is often caused by inflammations or calcifications of tendons or soft tissue located close to muscles or by tensed-up muscles, muscu-lar no dosity (trigger points) or inappropriate loading.
A necessity rather than luxury: Radial shock Wave therapy is considered one of the most innovative developments in recent pain therapy.
Contrary to conventional treatment methods, Radial Shock Wave Therapy allows the causes of pain to be eliminated directly at the point of origin without any medication or surgery. Successful results are achieved after a few treatment sessions.
How does Radial Shock Wave Therapy actually work?
First of all, the Podiatrist localizes the pain region by palpation and following the patient's indications of pain. After the source of pain and the pain region have been identified, the area of pain is subjected to short pulsed shock waves.
These high-energy acoustic pulses improve the metabolism in the pain region, increase blood cir culation and thus effectively stimulate the body's intrinsic repair mechanisms. In other words, radial therpay is all about activating the body's self-healing abilities.
Benefits of radial shock wave therapy:
- Outpatient therapy without medication or surgery
- Minimum expenditure of time (5 to 10 minutes per session)
- Excellent therapy success after only 2 to 4 treatment sessions
- Treating causes instead of symptoms
- Pain relief and recovery of full mobility after a few days in case of favourable therapy progress
- Minimum side effects (reddening, minor swelling)
- Patients can usually get back to sports and resume work after a few days without any pain
Radial wave therapy is offered on a private basis. Benefit from this innovative treatment method based on the latest scientific findings.
