All of us at Cascade Physical Therapy are excited about the new treatment options we have available for our patients. We always try to be on the leading edge of technology when it comes to innovative physical therapy treatment. Physical therapists are not alternative medicine providers. We only embrace new technologies when scientific mainstream research supports their efficacies and contributes to evidence based rehabilitation methods. We may be a small physical therapy practice, but we offer world class treatment!
In that spirit, we are pleased to announce our offering of Class 3 Radial Shock Wave Therapy, featuring the EMS Dolorclast. Cascade Physical Therapy is the only clinic in Oregon to offer this exciting technology!
Radial Shock Wave has been used in Europe and in veterinary medicine for over a decade with excellent results. It is specifically approved by the FDA for the treatment of chronic Plantar Fasciitis or “heel pain”. Typically treatment requires three applications at one time per week. Some people will respond with less treatment, and some people with more – but never more than six treatments. Shock Wave is also excellent for the treatment of tendinitis anywhere on the body – Achilles, knee, hip, shoulder and elbow.
No needles, no surgery, no electricity, no medications, no side effects. Just pain relief!
We have been testing this exciting new treatment on our patients and have been getting consistently good results. The treatment is well tolerated by any patient when performed properly.
