Shockwave Therapy


How does it work?

Treatment produces an inflammatory response. The body responds by increasing metabolic activity around the site of pain. This stimulates and accelerates the healing process.


What are the benefits of Shockwave?

Shockwave therapy stimulates the body's natural healing process. There is an immediate reduction of pain and improved ease of movement. Secondary effects are minor. Shockwave therapy may also reduce the chance of further surgery.


How long does the treatment last?

2000 shocks are delivered per session, which last approximately 5 minutes.

Does the treatment hurt?

You may feel some discomfort or pain if the patient cannot tolerate the settings can be adjusted.


How many treatments will I need?

Protocol states that three treatments are necessary at weekly intervals; however additional treatments may be needed if authorized by your doctor.


What should I do if I am in pain after the treatment?

The shockwave will trigger an inflammatory response, for this reason, do not use anti-inflammatory medications. Do not use ice as we want our bodies to trigger the natural healing response. The pain should subside within 24hours. Use Paracetamol if needed and only if you’re able to take this medication.

What about after the treatment?

Generally, there will be immediate pain relief, but there may be some discomfort experienced 2-4 hours after.


What if it feels good after the treatment?

Even if it feels good, we advise you to take it easy, rest.
