RPW (radial pressure waves) shockwave therapy is an excellent non-invasive treatment solution that promotes the rapid healing of injured tissue, bone, heel and joints. With virtually no side effects, the treatment method reduces pain and increases blood circulation, which stimulates the healing process. By speeding up the recovery process, RPW shockwave therapy enables people to regain the joy and comfort of natural mobility.
Therapeutic shockwaves were introduced as a medical treatment for eliminating kidney stones 20 years ago. A shockwave is an intense, but acoustic wave travelling faster than the speed of sound. Today, shockwave technology is used on millions of people around the world to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal, neurological, and soft tissue disorders.
Treatment sessions last no more than 30 minutes and provide successful rapid relief of chronic pain and restores mobility. Shockwave therapy at Citadel Physiotherapy is billed as a part of a regular physiotherapy session. It is available in both our Halifax and Dartmouth locations.
If you have any of the previously listed treatable conditions or feel that shockwave therapy may benefit other conditions you have, call us to book an appointment.
