Are you tired of dealing with persistent musculoskeletal pain? Seeking a non-invasive, cutting-edge treatment to accelerate healing and reduce discomfort? Look no further! Bodyworks Physical Therapy offers Radial Pressure Wave Therapy, also known as Radial Shockwave Therapy or Radial Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT).
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that utilizes high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. During a treatment session, a specialized handheld device is applied to the affected area of the body. The device generates and delivers the pressure waves to the tissues through one of many specialized applicators. These waves create a mechanical force that stimulates the cells and tissues, promoting increased blood circulation, the formation of new blood vessels, and the release of growth factors. This process is believed to assist and accelerate tissue healing and regeneration.
Commonly Treated Conditions
Our experienced team of therapists utilizes Shockwave Therapy to effectively address a range of conditions, including:
- Tennis Elbow

What to Expect During Treatment
Shockwave therapy is typically administered in multiple sessions, with each session lasting around 5-15 minutes depending on location. The total number of sessions required depends on the condition being treated and the patient’s response to the therapy, but generally ranges from 4-12 sessions. Shockwave therapy is often accompanied by a current physical therapy plan or exercises to assist in range of motion and/or strength depending on the condition.
Your Comfort is Our Priority
Some discomfort during the treatment is expected and should not surpass a 6/10 on the pain scale (below). Don’t worry; this indicates that we are targeting the right spot for optimal results. Patients can anticipate having a reduction in symptoms for 24-48 hours after receiving treatment. Each body part and each person may have a different experience, but the goal is the same for every patient: improve healing and reduce pain.
