What can I expect during my consultation?
At your first visit, you will meet our experienced Specialist Physiotherapist, who will discuss your symptoms and condition, followed by treatment of the area of pain or injury.
Shockwave therapy will be fully explained and treatment will commence. Shockwave treatment typically lasts for 10-15 minutes. This is followed by relevant hands-on manual therapy, for example, myofascial release or dry needling.
Should your Physiotherapist feel shockwave is not appropriate for your condition, this will be explained and a normal consultation fee will be made.
There are no known side effects of shockwave therapy. Most patients experience a reduction in their pain. Occasionally, a mild diffuse pain can be experienced within a few hours of treatment and may last 24 hours.
