Shockwave Therapy is the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment method cleared by the FDA. This proprietary technology is based on a unique set of pressure waves that stimulate metabolism, enhance blood circulation/flow, reduces cellulite, removes Deep Vein Thrombophlebitis (DVT), normalizes muscle tones, treats chronic pains, reduces tissue disorders, and accelerate the body's healing process. This procedure also represents a breakthrough treatment option for a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions. This treatment is also known as Acoustic Pressure Wave Therapy (APWT), Radial Shockwave Therapy or Treatment (RSWT), Ortho Pulse Radial Therapy (OPRT), Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) Treatment, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT), or Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT).
What is radial shockwave therapy?
Radial shockwave therapy (RSWT), also known as shockwave therapy, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), or acoustic wave therapy (AWT) is a non-invasive treatment that directs high-frequency shockwaves at blood vessels and tissues underneath your skin.
Radial shockwave therapy has a proven track record of success. Treatment is quick, pain-free, and requires no downtime. What’s more, 75% of people treated with radial shockwave therapy experience a significant reduction in their symptoms.
What conditions can radial shockwave therapy treat?
At PharmXhealthOne, the team uses radial shockwave therapy to treat many conditions, including:
- Erectile dysfunction - Erectile dysfunction is a condition that makes it difficult to get, keep, or maintain an erection. Radial shockwave therapy breaks down microplaque in the penis and encourages the formation of new, healthy blood vessels. This increased blood flow results in longer, harder erections, and a more satisfying sex life.
- Acute and chronic pain - If you experience a sports-related injury, slip-and-fall, or automobile accident, the trauma can damage your bones and soft tissues. This trauma results in fibrosis and scarring, which can trigger acute or chronic pain. Radial shockwave therapy breaks up these calcified areas, easing inflammation and pain.
- Low libido in women - After the age of 40, many women experience a decline in their sexual libido. Radial shockwave therapy improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow, increasing communication between nerves throughout the body. This process regenerates the muscles and nerves in your pelvis, improving sexual response and climax.
- Diabetic foot wounds - If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor circulation to your feet and toes, you’re also at risk of developing slow-healing wounds or ulcers. Radial shockwave therapy promotes blood flow to your lower extremities, ensuring your feet and toes receive the oxygen and nutrients they need to heal and thrive.
Am I a good candidate for radial shockwave therapy?
Only a qualified medical provider, like those at PharmXhealthOne, can determine if you’re a good candidate for radial shockwave therapy. During your initial consultation, your provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle.
If necessary, they might also order blood tests, urinalysis, or diagnostic imaging procedures to rule out underlying health problems or to gain further insights about the severity of your condition.
If you’ve tried other conservative treatments without a significant improvement in your symptoms, you’ll likely qualify.
