WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AND AFTER SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
As a subset of physiotherapy and advanced massage therapy Surrey, our shockwave treatments are highly ensured and trusted to be safe. Nevertheless, before trying shockwave therapy in Surrey, there is a list of questions you would need to clarify for yourself.
- What happens prior to shockwave therapy Surrey? – Your physiotherapist would check you first. If he recognizes you as a patient fit to receive shockwave therapy, he would advise you on how to face the shockwave treatment session. In addition to the shockwave treatment sessions: exercise routines, posture correction routines and mobility restoration routines that need to be followed along with shockwave therapy would be informed.
- Does it hurt? – Since shockwaves are named after their jump change in pressure and high amplitude, the kinetic energy produced by the compressed air would pressurize your skin. This results in a mild but tolerable discomfort in the area that is treated during shockwave therapy. However, the specialty with or shockwave is that the level of the treatment’s intensity can be adjusted. Shockwave therapy Surrey lasts not more than 4-5 minutes – which is why the slight discomfort would end as soon as it starts.
- How many shockwave treatments will you need? – As experts in ESWT and massage therapy Surrey, we usually recommend 3-4 shockwave treatments sessions done over a span of 3 weeks.
- What would you feel after the treatment? – You would start to see positive results after the very first shockwave treatment itself. Alongside the positivity, you would also feel a mild soreness and discomfort in the area treated by shockwave therapy, which would yet subside in a matter of hours. Just like massage therapy Surrey, shockwave therapy also excites inflammatory responses. However, the slight discomfort is entirely bearable.
- What should you do after the treatment? – Act as recommended by your therapist of Seva Wellness massage therapy Surrey. More often than not, immediate exhaustion of the treated area after the shockwave therapy is not allowed, though there is usually no hindrance to your regular physical activities.
