Shockwave therapy, a type of treatment, may help those who have joint, ligament, and tendon pain. It is performed by using a handheld applicator probe that comes into direct contact with the skin and delivers powerful shocks capable of breaking down tissue. This method increases blood flow to speed up recovery.
According to studies, shockwave therapy has an 80% chance of working, making it a more successful treatment than surgery or medication.
It might take a few days to weeks for the shockwave therapy treatment to show visible results. Shockwave therapy generally takes 3-5 treatments, each no longer than a week apart, in order to be effective in reducing pain.
Our clients have confirmed their pain vanished immediately after treatment. However, greater or more severe discomfort might need a longer therapy session in order for the body to heal properly.
Shockwave therapy has a number of advantages, including greater blood flow and the repair of muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments.
The versatility of shockwave therapy may help patients with a variety of health conditions, including plantar fasciitis, hamstring tears, achilles tendinopathy, gluteal and patella tendinopathy, shin splints, arthritis, and many more issues that can cause discomfort for patients.
