Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during a shockwave therapy session?

During a shockwave therapy session, you will be positioned comfortably, and a gel will be applied to the skin over the affected area to enhance the transmission of the shockwaves. The shockwave device will then be applied to the skin, delivering pulses of acoustic waves to the targeted tissues.
