What is Radial Shockwave Therapy In Boca Raton FL?

A non-invasive treatment, that can provide fast-acting pain relief. Radial shockwave therapy produces a mechanical pressure wave, which is transferred to the human body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue. The mechanical energy is absorbed by the tissue and decreases as the distance from the application site increases.

Mechanical energy enhances healing by facilitating:

  • Increased blood flowNewly formed blood vessels resulting from the application of pressure wave pulsations. The amplifies all of the factors the body produces to aid in the injury repair process.
  • Healing Chronic InflammationAcoustic waves affect immune system cells, such as the mast cells, to mediate inflammatory responses. This helps both dampen and stimulate the immune system to produce a better state of homeostasis and promote more efficient healing.
  • Collagen ProductionShockwave promotes collagen synthesis which is essential for the healing process. Collagen is vital for properly functioning joints.
  • Breakdown of Calcified FibroblastsPart of the healing process involves a buildup of calcium deposits in the soft tissue. These can often restrict movement and become very painful. Shockwave can break down these calcium deposits.
  • Release of Trigger PointsTrigger points is a primary cause of muscular pain in the neck, back, limbs, and shoulder. The acoustic waves may help release trigger points by reversing calcium pump blockage and the resultant metabolic crisis in myofilaments.
