Does the treatment hurt?

What problems can shockwave therapy treat?
Shockwave Therapy provides an evidence-based, successful alternative to surgery for many patients that are suffering from chronic pain or an ongoing injury. Studies have shown shockwave to be over 80% effective in chronic injuries that have failed to improve with conservative treatment. Shockwave therapy is an excellent alternative to surgical options for musculoskeletal pain.
