Shockwave Therapy also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), it is a non-invasive, relatively new method of pain relief. It has been extensively studied and determined as safe and effective for pain in the musculoskeletal system. Intelect® RPW 2 has now arrived in the treatment rooms at Hatch Chiropractic & Wellness in Parker Colorado.
The Intelect® RPW 2 brings the next generation of shockwave therapy to the Hatch treatment rooms using Radial Pressure Wave technology. Designed to activate connective tissue from the surface level to difficult-to-reach pathologies, the new Intelect® RPW 2 is a modality for addressing pain and inflammation in orthopedic conditions.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing process. It can relieve pain and promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. It accomplishes this by releasing growth factors in the injured tissue.
Shockwave therapy can help reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain by decreasing the release of inflammatory mediators from cells in the treated area. The sound waves cause tiny vibrations in the tissue, which help to break up the inflammatory cells and promote healing.
This technique is used for pain involving tendons, ligaments, and muscle, such as:
- Reduce muscle pain and aches
- Temporarily increase blood flow
- Activate connective tissue.
