Shockwave Therapy FAQ’s

Will shockwave Therapy help me?

Most people with chronic pain have been through many unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same people worldwide report that Shockwave Therapy has helped them to eliminate their pain! The added benefit of seeing a Podiatrist is that they will combine Shockwave with strength and conditioning plus other treatments that they know will fast track your healing. 

Does the treatment hurt?

There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain you are already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most people are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (4-6) treatment. Very often though you will experience relief right after the first treatment.

Will I feel any pain after the treatment?

Most people will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment as well as the following day, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.

How much does it cost?

Shockwave therapy is included in your consult so there’s no additional cost for you!
