What should I expect after shockwave therapy treatment?
After the treatment, you may experience temporary soreness, tenderness or swelling for a few days following the procedure, as the shockwaves stimulate an inflammatory response but this is the body healing itself naturally. Side effects of the treatment include mild discomfort to tissue, but therapy only lasts 4-5 minutes, and the intensity can be adjusted to keep it at a tolerable and comfortable level. It is important not to take any anti-inflammatory medication after treatment since it may slow down the results.
Upon completion of your treatment you can return to most regular activities almost immediately.
