RPW Shockwave Therapy
Therapeutic shock waves were first introduced as a medical treatment for eliminating kidney stones without causing skin injury over 20 years ago. Today, the use of shockwave therapy has been successfully extended to other therapeutic and wellness applications. Below are just some of the conditions that it can be used to treat:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Patellar Tendonitis
- Tennis Elbow
- Shin Splints
Shockwave therapy is currently only available from our Killarney clinic.
We are proud to be the only practice in Kerry to currently offer RPW Shockwave Therapy.
Therapeutic shock waves were first introduced as a medical treatment for eliminating kidney stones without causing skin injury over 20 years ago. Today the use of radial shock waves or radial pressure waves (RPW) has been successfully extended to other therapeutic and wellness applications such as the treatment of various muscle and tendon injuries, dissolving calcifications, activation of muscle and connective tissue, cellulite treatment, medical massage and lymphatic drainage.
RPW shockwave therapy offers a non-invasive treatment solution for conditions that are normally very difficult to treat. Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern while reducing pain and improving function.
Most conditions require a number of treatments spaced several days apart to allow your body to do its natural healing between sessions.
However, unlike many other forms of therapy, with shockwave therapy you will usually notice immediate results. These often include a significant reduction in pain, improved mobility, normalized muscle tone and previously noticeable knots or tightness will have become relaxed.
Contact us today to see if it could be of benefit to you.
