What are the advantages of shockwave therapy
Shockwave therapy is normally recommended for patients who have already had previous conservative therapies that have provided little or no clinical benefit. The treatment stimulates and effectively supports the body’s self healing mechanisms. It is usual to experience immediate pain relief following the treatment and hence improved movement. Reported side effects are minimal, however there may be some discomfort during treatment such as skin reddening, possible bruising. If you are concerned please speak with your medical practitioner before receiving treatment.
