Will Shockwave therapy help you?
People with chronic pain problems often try various types of unsuccessful treatments. Up to 80% of people worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their pain problem.
Does the treatment hurt?
There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the area and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–5) treatment. Often you will experience relief right after the first treatment.
How often will I need the treatment?
Most conditions require 3–5 treatments which are carried out 3–10 days apart, depending on your tolerance and tissue response.
Will I feel any pain after the treatment?
Most people will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.
Are there any restrictions after the treatment?
It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity, especially one that would involve the treated region, for about 48 hours following each treatment session.
