Shockwave Therapy

If you suffer from:

  • Chronic muscular back pain
  • Neck and anterior shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Achilles tendon or foot pain
  • Limited range of motion due to scar tissue
  • Muscular calf pain

Muscular pain affects millions of people every day. For some people this pain is a nuisance. But for many it is physically debilitating, reducing their quality of life and limited their ability to enjoy activities with family and friends.

Your chronic pain may be related to scar tissue and adhesions formed in the soft tissue or tendon/ligament post injury. A treatment with the enPuls Shockwave therapy effectively presses the reset button on chronic scarred and hard-to-treat soft tissue. Scar tissue and adhesions in many cases adhere to and put pressure on nerves. This can result in pain. By breaking up the scarring and adhesions, this helps take the pressure off the nerve and increase circulation to the area. This helps the body heal itself more efficiently and helps regain range of motion.

 

How does RSWT Technology work?

The enPuls delivers mechanical energy to the target tissue. The energy will treat area muscle pain and will increase circulation. It also positively affects the tissue tone, improving the effectiveness of your clinician’s other therapies.

How long will the pain relief last after treatment?

Most patients report some pain relief after the first treatment. However, the effects are most prominent after the second or third treatment. Your clinician will be able to help you through this process. Patients respond differently based on their condition.

Will I experience pain during treatment?

RSWT technology creates a mechanical stress that might cause mild discomfort during treatment. Depending on the desired depth of penetration, varying amounts of energy may be utilized to create the desired affect. Some soreness may be experienced post-treatment.

How many treatments are required on average?

The normal number of treatments for most conditions is 4 to 5. Certain conditions may require up to a maximum of 7 treatments. Four to ten days between treatments is recommended to allow the body to recover naturally.

Can I continue normal physical exercise or playing sports after RSWT?

Physical exercise promotes metabolism and the restructuring processes in the tissue. You may continue your physical activities within the guidelines set by your health care provider.
