Radial Pulse Therapy and Shock Wave Therapy Q & A
What is radial pulse therapy or shock wave therapy?
Radial shock wave therapy is a proven, cutting edge technology used to treat chronic foot, heel and ankle pain. It delivers mechanical energy to the target tissue. The energy can treat area soft tissue pain, increase circulation and improve tissue tone. It is an alternative treatment option to steroid injections, walking boots, lengthy physical therapy with expensive co-pays and even surgery.
How is shock wave therapy performed?
The 5-minute treatments are performed in office, only once a week, and there is usually no downtime after the procedure. You can continue your daily activities right away.
How many treatments are required on average?
The number of treatments for most conditions is 3-5. To allow the body to recover naturally, 4-7 days is recommended between treatments.
How soon can I expect pain relief after the first treatment?
Most patients report some pain relief after the first treatment, but the most prominent effects are usually experienced after the second or third treatment. Dr. Rosen will be able to help you through this process because patients respond differently based on the severity of their condition.
