WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR ESWT SESSIONS
During your first session, Dr Lance will pinpoint your source of pain using shock wave localisation techniques. He will then discuss the condition and treatment process with you.
Before treatment commences, a transparent gel will be applied to your skin to allow the shock waves to target the treatment area with minimal discomfort.
A shockwave applicator is then moved over the area in a circular pattern, releasing the waves into the targeted location. While you may experience slight discomfort, many patients describe the feeling as painless and even pleasant at times.
The treatment will take between 10 and 20 minutes depending on your ailment.
Most patients require 1 session per week for 3 to 8 sessions before they experience painless mobility. Many experience pain relief after the first visit already!
