RPW Shockwave treatment has been introduced to our Melville Wellness Centre by Ben, our superb podiatrist. It has already delivered terrific results for a variety of our patients. It works by repairing damage, assisting rehabilitation, and moving the recovery process forward.
Key conditions where this treatment has proved effective
RPW therapy has been shown, in clinical studies, to offer vital relief for a range of foot, tendon, ligament, ankle, calf and knee conditions. These include chronic tendinopathies, Plantar Fasciitis and myofascial trigger points.
How RPW Shockwave treatment works
RPW stands for Radial Pressure Waves. This term describes how the waveform itself advances throughout the body. These are actually acoustic waves. They move through the system, spreading outward from the initial contact point. During your treatment, Ben will move the point of first contact around until he has covered the entire problem area.
Once introduced into the body tissue, RPW shock and pressure waves then affect tissue on a cellular level. This increases blood flow and helps with the formation of new blood vessels. Both offer healing benefits and improve the body's environment for the repair of damaged tissue.
The application of these Radial Pressure Waves helps to deliver welcome localised pain relief. This is achieved through their influencing of your body's mechanisms for delivering this outcome.
