RPW Shockwave Therapy
*Available at our Mission, TX Location
Chattanooga Intelect RPW is a compressed air-ballistic shockwave generator. The shockwaves for the device is generated with a precision ballistic mechanism in the handpiece which accelerates a projectile by compressed air.
The acoustic wave is transmitted into the tissue via a coupling gel and collectively this is known as “Radial Pressure Wave Therapy”.
The propagating acoustic waves functionally stimulate increased blood flow and metabolic activity within the cell.
Physical effects of Radial Pressure Waves
Radial pressure waves offer a non invasive treatment solution for long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies.
Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern.
RPW Shockwave therapy is indicated for:
• Myofacial Trigger Points
• Activation of muscle and connective tissue
• Disorder of tendon insertions
