Physical effects of Radial Pressure Waves 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. Today there are several working hypothesis for the physical effects of radial pressure waves: Pain reduction: The patient experiences a reduction of pain, explained by the Gate Control theory. Intensive pulses from the transmitter into the tissue, create a strong nociceptor activation of the A-β fibers, which affect interneurons that inhibit the...
