Frequently Asked Questions

1. How does Radial ShockWave Therapy work?

Radial ShockWave Therapy is a modern and very effective method of treatment. Its effect can often already be noticed after as few as 4 sessions.  The healing process is accelerated by stimulating the self-healing properties of the body. They improve the metabolism and the blood circulation.

Damaged tissue recovers and heals itself. This will cause the pain to decrease and mobility to improve.

2. How long does one treatment take and how often should it be done?

A treatment session lasts between 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the condition to be treated. In general, 6 to 8 treatments will be needed at intervals of one week.
