How long will the pain relief last after treatment?
Most patients report some pain relief after the first treatment. However, the effects are the most prominent after the second or third treatment. Your clinician will be able to help you through this process. Patients respond differently, based on their condition.
Will I experience pain during treatment?
Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT) creates a mechanical stress that may cause mild discomfort during treatment. Depending on the desired depth of penetration, varying amounts of energy may be utilized to create the desired effect. Some soreness may be experienced post treatment.
How many treatments are required on average?
The normal number of treatments for most conditions is 4 to 5. Certain conditions may require up to a maximum of 7 treatments. 4 to 10 days between treatments is recommended to allow the body to recover naturally. If the maximum of 7 treatments is required, it is advisable to wait 4 to 6 weeks before the next treatment to the same body area.
Can I continue normal physical exercise or playing sports after RPT?
Physical exercise promotes metabolism and the restructuring processes in the tissue. You may continue your physical activities within the guidelines set by your health care provider.
