Shockwave works by using acoustic waves which are similar to air pressure waves which, get administered through contact with the skin and trigger your body’s self-healing ability.
Radial Shockwave therapy is a clinically proven method in treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
In a lot of cases, this treatment delivers pain reduction after 1st treatment. Most people experience significant improvement results after one to two sessions depending on their condition. Considering that cells need time to recover, in rare cases results can take up to 12 weeks. It is important to finish recommended treatment sessions without missing appointments and making a long interval time between sessions which may result in a longer than needed treatment time frame.
Shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people. The treatment success rate is equal to or greater than surgery. It’s a well-tolerated, safe, effective, and non-invasive method that stimulates the self-healing process down to the cellular level. There haven’t been any side effects or reactions to the treatment.
Usually, you need 3-5 sessions, with 2-3 days apart. The duration of treatments is about 10-15 minutes. Treatments are well tolerated by everyone, the minor side effects may occur such as redness or a bit of swelling which goes away within a day.
