RPW Shockwave Therapy
Core Physio has offered Shockwave Therapy to our clients at several other locations over the years, and we are pleased to be able to introduce RPW Shockwave Therapy for the first time here at the Aberfoyle Park Physio practice.
What Is Shockwave Therapy
Therapeutic shockwaves were introduced as medical treatment over 30 years ago for eliminating kidney stones by applying a shock wave from outside of the body. During this early application of radial pressure waves, they found unexpected positive effects of increased tissue healing. Today the use of Radial Shockwaves or Radial Pressure Waves (RPW) has been successfully extended to other therapeutic applications.
RPW Shockwave Therapy does not utilise electrical currents, magnetic fields or other wave forms such as infra-red waves or microwaves. Shockwaves produced by a physical process penetrate into the tissue and only have a direct effect on the tissues directly under the transmitter.
Some Common Musculoskeletal Applications are:
- Plantar fasciitis, heel pain and heel spurs
- Shoulder calcification, tendinopathy and chronic shoulder pain
- Tennis elbow of lateral/Medial epicondylitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Gluteal tendonitis
- Reduction of myofascial trigger points (localised or referred muscle pain)
