Does Shockwave Therapy hurt?
There may be some discomfort as the Shockwave therapy is applied but the power of the shockwaves can be increased or decreased to a level that is acceptable to you. You might possibly feel some discomfort immediately following the treatment but this is usually mild and should resolve within 24 hours. How many Shockwave therapy sessions will I need? Pain associated with the problems mentioned here can be hard to treat, and you will probably have already tried many sessions of manual therapy, pain killers, anti-inflammatories and even injections.
However most patients who receive Shockwave Therapy experience improvements in their condition from just a single session with it typically taking between 3 and 8 sessions, for maximum improvement. Shockwave Therapy can achieve excellent results for people suffering from persistent and painful conditions. In many instances there will be an immediate reduction in pain, as well as improved mobility and function. Shockwave therapy is non-invasive, non-addictive and there is no need for anaesthesia. Each treatment session takes approximately 5-20 minutes.
Most conditions require just 3 to 8 treatments that are done 3-7 days apart. Applications in physiotherapy are mostly associated with the treatment of chronic muscular disorders, tendinopathies, back pain and trigger points. Compared to conventional manual and instrumental therapy, Shockwave therapy is extremely effective, shortens the treatment period and brings better results in long term follow-up.
