Shockwave Therapy is a very safe treatment modality. There are no adverse effects to the treatment, other than post-treatment soreness that usually decreases within 1-3 days. Relative contraindications would be fractures, bone diseases, active cancer, pregnancy, connective tissue disorders or hemophilia. The beneficial effects of shock wave therapy are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments. The therapy eliminates pain and restores full mobility, thus improving your quality of life.
