    What is the Fab Clinic Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

    Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.

    The effectiveness & safety of shockwave therapy is addressed by the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence (NICE).

    Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment that works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) treatment is a highly effective treatment available for patients with conditions such as:

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • Will Shockwave therapy help me?

    Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 87% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their problem.

    • Does the treatment hurt?

    There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.

    • How many treatments will I need?

    The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–6) treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.

    • How often will I need the treatment?

    Most indications require 3–6 treatments which are done 5–7 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response.

    • Will I feel any pain after the treatment?

    Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.

    • Are there any restrictions after the treatment?

    It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity, especially one that would involve the treated region, for about 48 hours following each treatment session.
