Helping improve chronic musculoskeletal conditions
What are RPW Shockwaves and how do they help:
Radial shockwaves are introduced into the body by means of a freely moved applicator and cover the entire pain region. Radial shockwaves are often referred to as radial pressure waves, which is the correct definition in physical terms. The pathological association between pain and muscle tone and vascular tone is broken as a result of shock wave therapy and the strong stimuli it produces, thus enabling natural movement patterns to be remembered and recalled.
RPW Shockwave therapy has strong evidence for the optimal recovery of tendon issues, especially tendinopathy.
What is a Tendinopathy:
A tendinopathy is the result of the failed healing attempt by the body on a tendon structure. The human body is efficient at healing damaged tissue, however, in the case of tendons (the connective tissue joining a muscle to a bone), they have a poor blood supply compared to other tissue in the body, therefore when they are damaged, the healing response often fails. This often starts with a “niggle”, and slowly develops into a chronic injury.
