The Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) also known as Shockwave Therapy does not apply electric shocks. The RPT I use in my practice is applied by holding a lightweight hand-piece against the skin that (houses electromagnets, instead of a compressor, to accelerate a projectile inside the hand-piece that hits an applicator tip) creates a unique radial wave that penetrates into the surrounding target tissue.
Dr. Tucker has added Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT) to his list of treatments. This is the latest advancement in pain relief technology. RSWT is a especially useful for plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, Achilles tendinitis, and other pain and stiffness in muscles and joints do to scar tissue and adhesions.
