Radial Shockwaves – Unique and powerful technology
for superficial orthopedic problems such as:
- Insertion tendinopathy/Achilles tendonitis/Plantar Fasciitis
- Tendon problems
- Chronic inflammation
- Hypertonic muscle systems
- Myofascial syndromes
- Hemotoma treatments
Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT) is a method for the treatment of superficial orthopedic disorders developed over the past 20 years. A projectile accelerated in the handpiece generates a mechanical pressure wave, which is transferred to the human body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue.
The mechanical energy is absorbed by the tissue and decreases as the distance from the application site increases. The mechanical stress triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions.
