Shockwave Treatments

Treatment sessions typically last anywhere between 10-30 minutes depending on the conidition being treated. A sensation of light pain or numbess is usually the reported over the area that is being treated. 3 to 5 treatments are generally necessary for most coniditions and on average there are 3 to 5 days between each treatment. Healing continues to occur for up to 12 weeks after the initial treatments are completed. Light activities are recommended after each treatment.
