Radial Pressure Wave Therapy (RPWT)
RPWT is used to treat a variety of soft tissue conditions but particularly chronic tendinitis/tendinosis. The technology for RPWT has been around for a while, but only recently have studies narrowed down protocols for specific conditions and results more broadly accepted as valid.
The exceptional thing is that it works much faster, relieving pain quickly and with improvements maintained in the long term. 6S Physio is excited to be one of the few allied health practices offering this form of treatment.
When appropriately applied, shockwave can increase local blood flow, improve healing response, break apart scar tissue and adhesions, reduce muscle spasm, and directly decrease pain.
Conditions treated include Plantar Fasciitis, Heel spurs/Heel pain, Calcific Tendonitis, Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee), Achilles Tendonitis, Rotator Cuff Tendinitis, Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Myofascial Trigger Points in muscle, Iliotibial Band Syndrome (IT Band Syndrome), Bursitis / Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrom
To provide the most effective rehabilitation and treatment for our clients, 6S Physio incorporates a range of industry leading products and equipment. These are used within our treatments to provide pain relief, accelerate the healing process and help our clients manage injuries, diseases or disorders.
