What To expect
At Chews Health before starting Shockwave treatment we will make sure it is safe for you. The treatment is delivered using a handheld device attached to a machine
The end of the treatment device oscillates producing acoustic shockwaves that pass through the skin into your body. This device is placed on the painful area and adjacent muscles in a sweeping movement. The machine is quite loud and the treatment will be a little bit uncomfortable but effective! We will ask you constantly throughout the treatment to see how you feel and change the strength of the treatment depending on your feedback to us.
Successful shockwave treatment at Chews Health will involve the use of the shockwave machine but also the utilisation of a personalised rehabilitation program. Guidelines suggest a total of 4-6 shockwave treatments. This will include strengthening exercises, advice and education about how much exercise and when to do it.
