What To Expect From
Shockwave Therapy Treatment

Your therapist will discuss your symptoms with you and locate the source of pain. They will then mark the area intended for the Shockwave Therapy. A gel is applied to optimise the contact between the application device and your skin. The hand piece delivers pulsations to the pain area for just a few minutes, depending on the condition. The energy waves then stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

The treatment itself doesn’t hurt. Occasionally there is mild discomfort in the muscle for a day or two after. This occurs because the treatment works by causing micro-injury to the muscle, which stimulates it to naturally repair itself to full health, in the same way weight training strengthens muscles. Most patients say they have few or no problems following treatment.

Is Shockwave Therapy Right For Me?

Perfect Balance practitioners are highly ethical and will make sure that Shockwave Therapy is the best choice of treatment for you before starting any treatment. This treatment can produce amazing results but we must make sure that you are right for the treatment and that there are no contraindications.

Who Will Perform The Treatment?

The treatment is administered by a professional therapist trained in delivering the shockwave therapy to the affected area. All therapists carry out a full medical history to ascertain the correct clinical indication for the use of shockwave therapy on the injured body part.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Usually, between one and three sessions, depending on the condition being treated. More than three sessions in a set period of time are not indicated and may impair healing, so our standard package offer includes three sessions.
