When or who does Shockwave help?
If you have been suffering from any of these conditions for some time and if they’ve failed to improve with other treatments, then read on, as SWT could certainly help you.
What does Shockwave Therapy involve?
Each session will be tailored to your individual needs and goals, but as a guide your first session will be 45 minutes including a full injury assessment, diagnosis and your first SWT treatment. We incorporate shockwave treatment alongside our other treatments at no extra charge.
What will happen during a SWT treatment?
The overall treatment will last between 15 – 20 minutes, during which we’ll also give you injury advice and exercises to further help your recovery.
It is recommended that you have one SWT session a week. A total of 3-4 sessions is normally needed for mild cases, 6 or more may be needed for longer-term, more severe injuries.
Feedback from other patients who’ve had SWT is that the treatment feels very specific to the problem area i.e. “it’s right on it”, “it’s getting right to it”, “I can feel it doing its job”. Following the SWT treatment session, there can be an ongoing sensation of healing between treatments. This is perfectly normal.
