So, what is it you do?
Frequently Asked Questions:
How long does it take??
Typically the active treatment is about 5 minutes per area that we are treating, with additional assessment time and treatment - visits are approximately 15 minutes. /Most conditions require multiple treatments spaced several days apart to allow your body to do its natural healing in between sessions.
Is it effective, can it help me??
Yes. The evidence overwhelming supports Shockwave Therapy as a breakthrough technology that is often the best choice for certain conditions that do not respond well to other forms of treatment.
Is it safe??
Yes. All studies show that Shockwave Therapy when used for the appropirate conditions has no negative health effects.
Does it hurt??
If your treatment is on a "fleshy" area, you are not likely to feel any discomfort at all. Treatment on "boney" regions tend to be more sensative. Your first treatment might be slightly uncomfortable but most patients find it tolorable. As your body heals, you will find each successive treatment easier.
How does it work??
A small metal ball (projectile) is accelerated inside the handpiece using electomagnetic propulsion until it impacts the stop plate. This collision creates a mechanical pressure wave. The wave of energy is transferred to the applicator head which then sends that energy through your body.
