If you suffer from foot and lower limb pain, you know how frustrating it can be to find effective treatment. Whether it’s Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis, ITB Syndrome or Hip Bursitis, traditional therapies like rest, ice, shoe inserts and physical therapy may not always provide the relief you need. That’s where Radial Pressure Wave therapy comes in.
Radial Pressure Wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy waves to stimulate healing in damaged tissue. It works by generating pressure waves that travel through the skin and soft tissue to the affected area, promoting blood flow, reducing inflammation and inducing a tissue healing/pain reducing response. This can help speed up the healing process and reduce pain very quickly.
One of the great things about Radial Pressure Wave Therapy is that it is relatively quick and painless. A typical session takes only 10-15 minutes with little to no downtime, so you can return to your normal activities right away.
While Radial Pressure Wave therapy is not a cure-all, it is a very effective tool when used in combination with strengthening exercises and other modalities like Therapeutic Laser. It has been shown to be particularly helpful in treating plantar fasciitis, a common condition that causes pain in the heel or bottom of the foot. It may also be useful in treating Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, and other soft tissue injuries like Hip Bursitis with scientific research yielding success rates of around 80-85%.
