The Treatment Protocol
Most shockwave therapy treatment plans will be 3-5 treatments, ideally 7-10 days apart. The healing process can take up to 3 months to complete, over which time you will also be doing rehab exercises to correct biomechanical issues that may have lead to the injury.
This does vary slightly depending on what you are having treated, how long it’s been there and your tolerance for receiving the treatment. We will adjust the treatment intensity for your pain tolerance and try to make the experience as comfortable as possible, while still being therapeutically beneficial.
For example, if we adjust the intensity to be lower in order to make it more comfortable for you, this may mean you need 5 treatments, rather than 3 treatments to get the desired affect.
The healing process after the last treatment is typically 3 months. You should avoid any other manual therapy or treatment directly to this area. You will also be given very specific exercises to do daily, which are an important part of the healing phase and will have a direct impact on your results.
