Shockwave Therapy is an extremely effective and non-invasive solution to the pain and impairment caused by chronic, overuse injuries.

Shockwave Therapy, is an application of  series of high-energy safe waves to be delivered to the required painful area. These pulses  triggers cellular activity and an inflammatory positive reaction which promotes healing.

What is the typical course of treatment?

Each session of treatment takes approximately 5—10 minutes. During this time 2,000 to 3,000 pulse waves are delivered to the area being treated.

Most conditions require 4—6 sessions. Treatments are done 5—10 days apart, depending upon patient tolerance and tissue response.

Acute injuries may take 3—4 treatments, 5-7 days apart & chronic injuries 6-10 sessions sometimes twice a week.
