What happens during treatment?
The painful area will be located by palpation, or in some cases using diagnostic ultrasound. Ultrasound gel will be applied to the skin before administering the shockwaves to ensure good contact. Shockwave Therapy will then be administered by Ian Vasey using a hand-held probe and calibration machine.
This is a non-invasive procedure. No anaesthetic is required. If pain is experienced during the treatment, adjustments can be made to the treatment settings to reduce the level of discomfort.
A series of treatments, on average 3-4, are required. This will vary from patient to patient. Each treatment session lasts approximately 10-15 minutes.
