Shockwave therapy incorporates the use of radial shockwaves or radial Pressure Waves that are introduced into the body by means of a freely moved applicator. The technology used in the equipment works via the compression of air to create shock waves that are sent through the transmitter. These shockwaves penetrate into the tissue and have a direct effect on the tissues directly under the transmitter.
RPW Shockwave Therapy does not utilise electrical currents, magnetic fields, or other waveforms such as infra-red waves or microwaves.
Shockwave Therapy feels like a strong tapping sensation on your skin. The machine makes an audible noise as it’s working due to the way that the machine creates the shockwaves.
