How does RPT work?
The device delivers mechanical energy into the target tissue. This energy will increase circulation and treat muscle aches and pains in the impaired area. It also affects the tissue tone in a positive way, making Dr. Finkelstein’s other therapies more effective.
Your chronic pain may be related to scar tissue and adhesions formed either in soft tissue or tendon/ ligament post injury. A treatment with the en Puls effectively presses the reset button on chronic scarred and hard-to-treat soft tissue. Scar tissue or adhesions in many cases adheres to and puts pressure on nerves which can result in pain. By breaking up the scarring and adhesions, the treatment helps take the pressure off the nerve and increases circulation to the area which helps the body heal itself more efficiently. Plus, this will help increase range of motion.
Is it normal to 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 and some soreness may be experienced post treatment.
What is the duration of pain relief after treatment?
Most patients report some pain relief after the first treatment. However, the effects are most prominent following the second or third treatment. Dr. Finkelstein will be able to help you through this process, as every patient may respond differently.
How many treatments are required on average?
The normal number of treatments for most conditions is 3 to 4, but certain conditions may require up to a maximum of 9 treatments. Four to 10 days between treatments is recommended for the body to recover naturally. If the maximum of 9 treatments is required, it is advisable to wait 4 to 6 weeks before the next treatment to the same area of the body.
Can I continue playing sports or normal physical exercise after RPT?
Physical exercise promotes metabolism and the restructuring processes in the tissue. It is normal to continue your physical activities within guidelines set by Dr. Finkelstein.

There are two main effects of ultrasound. First, pulsed ultrasound is used to treat acute injuries and help move fluids and reduce inflammation. Second, continuous ultrasound is used to help chronic conditions by deep heating the tissue. This encourages blood flow to promote more rapid healing.
Interferential Therapy (IFC)
IFC is a frequency that is among the most effective types of electric stimulation for both acute and chronic pain control. IFC works by stimulating the production of the body’s own natural pain-relieving substances.
