RPT Makes Feet Pain-Free

Any DPM will tell you that chronic foot and ankle pain can substantially hamper your mobility and detract from your quality of life, making even the most straightforward tasks into arduous trials. But what if there was a treatment that could help you get back on your feet, pain-free, without surgery or injections? An FDA-approved, modern, and effective method approved for remedying all kinds of conditions? What would that mean for patients enduring chronic pain and discomfort?

These questions all have answers, and the treatment we’re referring to already exists. We’re talking about Radial Pulse Therapy (RPT), a revolutionary, non-invasive technology that the team at Desert Podiatric Medical Specialists has been using for some time.

For this post, we’ll break down the basics of RPT shock wave therapy, including what it is, what it can treat, and why it might just be the solution for managing your foot and ankle pain.

Wait, What is RPT?

Imagine a gentle, pulsating wave of energy stimulating your sore tissues. That’s essentially what RPT does. Using a handheld device, a podiatrist delivers targeted pressure waves deep into painful, inflamed areas. The waves trigger a cascade of healing effects within your body:

  • They boost circulation, delivering fresh oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues to promote healing.
  • They stimulate the release of endorphins, your body’s natural pain relievers.
  • They break up scar tissue, promoting the growth of healthy new tissue.
  • They decrease inflammation, a key contributor to pain and swelling.

What conditions can RPT treat?

RPT is versatile and used to treat a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions, including:

Radial Pulse Therapy has distinct advantages over other treatments:

  • Non-invasive: No needles or surgery necessary.
  • Fast results: Many patients experience noticeable pain relief within the first few sessions.
  • Long-Term Efficacy: The benefits often last for months and sometimes even years.
  • Minimal side effects: RPT is generally well-tolerated, with minimal risk of side effects.
