DOES SHOCKWAVE HURT? AND ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Shockwave is best explained as a deep vibration sensation.
Most patients will describe their first thoughts as a mild tenderness, just like pressing on a bruise or painful spot.
However, during and after the treatment, majority of patients are pain-free. Some patients do experience sensations like tingling and aching which is all common but unlikely.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
It depends on your pain and injury but your Podiatrist will give you a detailed prescription at your first session.
For best results we commonly recommend 3-6 sessions a week apart.
HOW LONG DOES EACH SESSION TAKE?
Each appointment is less than 30minutes. The total number of shocks, frequency and intensity can be tailored to best suit your needs at each appointment.
