Intelect RPW Shockwave
- Radial pressure waves offer a non-invasive treatment solution for long term insertion and soft tissue pathologies.
- Local treatment of the affected area will enhance and reset the healing pattern while reducing pain and improving function.
- With very few negative side effects, Radial Pressure Wave therapy is indicated for conditions that are normally very difficult to treat and is now widely used for many therapeutic and wellness applications.
- Physical effects of radial pressure waves include: pain reduction (Gate Control theory), increased metabolism, as shockwaves influence the tissues on a cellular level, revascularization effect, where the renewed blood flow promotes tissue healing and regeneration, and muscle tone recovery.
The device is intended to be used as a therapeutic modality by clinicians needing to provide patients with a powerful and a proven method of treating indications as pain, Myofascial trigger points, Disorders of tendon insertions, activation of muscle and connective tissue.
INDICATIONS FOR USE
Radial pressure wave therapy is indicated for the following
- Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrP)
- Localizing and Deactivating Trigger Points
Triggers are localized at the low energy level (approximately 2 bar) by passing the transmitter over the muscle region being treated (increased sensitivity to pain) and then deactivated using a higher energy level (approximately 3 bar).
- Activation of Muscle and Connective Tissue
- Increasing Circulation
Promotes blood flow through the tissue and boosting metabolism.
- Pulse Vibration Massage
Soothing relief from muscle strain and stress.
- Disorder of Tendon Insertions
- Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Pain, or Heel Spur
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of the foot caused by excessive wear to the plantar facia that supports the arch
- Tendinosis Calcarea/Supraspinatus-Tendon
Shoulder calcifications and chronic shoulder pain
- Radial and Ulnar Humeral Epicondylitis
Tennis elbow, inflammation of tendon attachments on cubital or radial part of elbow joint (humeral)
Pain due to inflammation of the Achilles tendon or the bursa associated with it.
- Retropatellar Pain Syndrome
- Pain in the front of, behind, and around the kneecap.
- Tibial Edge Syndrome
- Pain located along or just behind the medial edge of the tibia
- Proximal Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome/Trochanteric Insertion Tendonitis
- Pain or aching on the outer side of the knee or hip
