Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive therapy using high energy shockwaves to relieve pain and increase the healing rate. The process activates the body’s self- healing mechanisms by increasing blood flow to the painful area. For shockwave to be beneficial 4 treatments are recommended. One treatment per week. A reduction in symptoms is often experienced after just 1 visit, however, it is important to understand that the healing process continues ≥6 weeks following the final treatment.
