What is Radial Shock Wave Therapy?
Do you suffer from chronic, persistent pain? Do you want a non-surgical alternative to resolve your condition? Serving the St. Albert and Edmonton area, pt Health Sturgeon Valley offers the most cutting edge treatment for injury repair. Radial shock wave therapy also known as Extracorporeal shock wave is a safe and non-invasive technology that uses a wand-like device to emit fast bursts of shock waves that penetrate soft tissues of the injured areas which:
- Breaks up scar tissues on tendons and ligaments.
- Creates an optimal environment for cellular repair and tissue healing.
- Decreases sensitivity of pain receptors.
- Increases local blood flow.
- Regenerates blood vessels and bone cells.
- Reverses chronic inflammation.
- Stimulates the body’s natural healing response.
