Specialist rheumatology clinic RTMS London is offering Magnetic Shockwave Therapy (MST) to help patients relieve a variety of aches, pains and neurological problems. Lead by world-renowned rheumatologist Dr Stephanie Kaye-Barrett, the Harley Street clinic can deliver painless treatment with MST that delivers immediate benefits.
What is Magnetic Shockwave Therapy?
Magnetic Shockwave Therapy involves the application of electromagnetic pulses to targeted areas of the body. Nerves in the treated area respond, triggering twitching of the targeted muscle. This process alleviates pain both in the short and long term. It works particularly well on the lower back and the neck and shoulders. It’s also useful for stroke rehabilitation and other neurological problems.
MTS is completely painless, and many people experience some relief from symptoms right away. Unlike electrical stimulation in which currents pass through the skin via electrodes, MTS works through clothing. This makes it a convenient and straightforward treatment for various types of nerve pain.
