Is it safe and effective?
The current research and clinical studies support the fact that Radial Pulsed Shockwave Therapy is highly effective in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions. It is important that each person is individually assessed to see if Shockwave is appropriate and beneficial to their health needs as each person responds uniquely to different stimuli and techniques. This form of therapy initiates and utilizes the body’s natural healing abilities by reducing pain and inflammation right at the root of the problem therefore allowing the body’s healing and restoration process to take place.
Most people report immediate relief of pain and ease of movement and mobility. It is recommended that you do not use any anti-inflammatory medications or even ice after treatment with Shock wave and reduce activity level for the first 48 hrs. This will ensure that the body receives the full effect and benefit of this form of therapy.
Dr. Feng Lee performs the Shock Wave therapy out of our Cambridge Clinic.
“When done properly, correctly and applied to the appropriate orthopedic conditions I personally have a 95% plus success rate in my clinical practice during the past 5 years. It is important to note that I utilize other forms of rehabilitative treatment and techniques with Shockwave in order to restore full functional ability in the shortest possible amount of time.”
