Radial Pressure Wave Therapy (RPWT) in Huntsville

shockwave wandCommitted to providing our patients with the latest therapies to help them heal, Buckner Chiropractic Center offers Radial Pressure Wave Therapy (RPWT). This cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment uses low-intensity radial shockwaves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. These shockwaves are generated by a specialized device and directed to the affected area, promoting increased blood flow and metabolic activity.

How Does it Work?

RPWT works by creating micro-trauma in the targeted tissue, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. This process initiates the release of growth factors and the formation of new blood vessels, ultimately leading to improved tissue regeneration and pain relief.

Conditions It Can Address

RPWT has been successfully used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis
  • Tennis/golfer’s elbow
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Scar tissue adhesions

Frequently Asked Questions

Does RPWT hurt?

RPWT is generally well-tolerated; most patients experience minimal discomfort during treatment sessions. Some patients may experience mild soreness or tenderness in the treated area, which typically subsides within a few hours.

Are there any side effects?

Some side effects may occur following an RPTW session. These include reddening, swelling, bruising, and petechia (red spots). The majority will appear after 1-2 days, but these usually diminish after 5-10 days.

How many sessions are needed?

The number of sessions required varies depending on the condition being treated and the individual’s response to the therapy. Most patients experience significant improvement after 3-5 sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart.

Is RPWT safe?

RPWT is an FDA-cleared treatment and is considered safe when performed by a qualified healthcare professional. There are no known long-term side effects, and the procedure is non-invasive, eliminating the risks associated with surgery or injections.
