What about after the treatment?
Generally there will be immediate pain relief, but there may be some discomfort experienced 2-4 hours after.
What should I do if I am in pain after the treatment?
The shockwave will trigger an inflammatory response, For this reason, do not use anti-inflammatory medications. Do not use ice as we want our bodies to trigger the natural healing response. The pain should subside within 24 hours. Use Paracetamol if needed as long as you able to take this medication.
What if it feels good after the treatment?
Even if it feels good, we would advise you to take it easy, rest.
What if it doesn’t work for me?
Although the immediate to short-term effects alone are excellent, the long-term effects of shockwave therapy can take up to 4 months. If you still have problems consult you therapist / doctor as additional treatments may be required or an alternative treatment may be necessary.
