RPW is a non-invasive effective medical treatment used broadly in among the medical and sports medicine fields. RPW sends high-energy radial pressure waves to effected areas or chronic pain areas using mechanical shockwave technologies (not electrical wave). The treatment only takes a few minutes and is relatively painless as it stimulates the body's natural ability to heal itself. Clinical studies show treatment results of 91% success rate in reduced pain, increased range of motion and general strengthening in the surrounding tissues.
As the Radial Pressure Waves are being emitted into the soft tissues during the treatment, they begin to stimulate NEW CELL GROWTH and increased Blood Flow. Cells become more permeable allowing for the transfusion of nutrients and wastes at a faster rate which increases cellular metabolism. The RPW's trigger the release of bio-chemicals in the soft tissues stimulating an array of new blood vessels and connective tissues. The treatment has a progressive effect on the body's cellular response, continually improving.
Dr. Patterson D.C. will evaluate your musculoskeletal issue and individualize a treatment plan that best suits your needs and goals. Patients often experience pain relief during the treatment, and have reported improved results same day which continue to progressively get better. Treatment plans vary depending on the severity of the issue.
