Radial Pulse Therapy

Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) is a break through therapy that penetrates radial pulse waves into chronically injured tissue breaking up scar tissue creating a re-vascularization (new blood supply) to heal naturally. People with chronic muscle, tendon, and connective tissue pain often have old patterns that have developed. Radial Pulse Therapy, also called Shockwave, uses a hand instrument to generate a pulsing, mechanical pressure wave that travels deeper down into the surrounding tissue, spreading as it penetrates. To clarify, shockwave therapy does not apply electrical shocks.

Our patients who use Radial Pulse Therapy say that it just “feels” like what they’ve needed, but haven’t been able to find. If you haven’t responded to other therapies for chronic soft tissue problems, or if you know that further results are possible, you have to try this therapy. Offering this therapy is just another example of Lake Country Health Center utilizing the latest technology aiding in producing amazing clinical results.

When it is used in conjunction with our other unique soft tissue therapies such as Class IV Laser and Interferential therapy, expect results that you haven’t been able to find elsewhere.

How long does a treatment take?
Radial Pulse Therapy treatment may take between 1 minute to 5 minutes depending on the area needing treatment. The total number of treatments is generally 6-12 depending upon many factors which will be evaluated by Dr. Murray, Dr. Meye, or Dr. Margelowsky. It is important to remember that the immediate relief of pain, that this therapy often provides, does not mean the condition is fully healed. Therefore, if a course of therapy is suggested, completing all of the treatments will improve your chances of long term success.

Different patients will benefit from different types of treatment options. Dr. Murray, Dr. Meye, or Dr. Margelowsky will determine the best combination of treatments for each individual patient.
