Radial Shock Wave Therapy

What is Radial Shock
Wave Therapy?

Radial Shock Wave Treatment is used to treat a wide range of pathologies in areas such as bone healing, tendinopathies, muscular trigger points/myofascial pain, facet joint pain, dermatology, cardiac infarction, wound healing, spasticity and impotence.

Therapeutic shockwaves were introduced in the 90s as a medical treatment for eliminating kidney stones, but their true origins lie further back in the horrors of the Great War. Surgeons and medical officers stationed at the trenches often found soldiers who died without a mark on them; they showed no signs of any identifiable disease. Post-mortem examination revealed their internal organs had been destroyed, ‘pulped’. A question emerged: how was this possible without a bullet entrance-wound? Investigation of this phenomenon led to the discovery of the invisible shockwaves created by warheads and explosives. The medial professionals turned their minds to harnessing the shockwave in a positive ways for the treatment of tumors and other unwanted growths, bringing a significant advancement in medicine.
