Radial Shockwave Therapy

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave Therapy (RST) is a unique type of treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to heal pain in the body. It is most effective when used to treat chronic pain as the process promotes regeneration and repair of bones, muscles and soft tissues.

How is it different?

At our clinic, Radial Shockwave Therapy is performed by one of our specially trained physiotherapists or chiropractors. Using dedicated RST equipment, the therapist transmits acoustic waves through the surface of the skin and into the body, directly targeting the problem area. The body responds to these waves with increased metabolic activity which stimulates and accelerates the healing process.

Although patients may feel some slight discomfort, the process is a pain-free and non-invasive way to penetrate deep into the soft tissue beneath the skin. Radial shockwave has proven to be extremely effective in healing pain which may be unresponsive to more traditional therapies such as physiotherapy and massage.
