We have had our Shockwave Therapy Ultra mp100 for over two months now and the practitioners have done over 100 treatments. As with most therapies we are skeptical until we have all had the opportunity to use the tool and compare notes. The general consensus among the staff is positive and it has replaced the therapeutic ultrasound machine as a modality of choice for certain conditions.
The patients have responded well to Shockwave treatment and the feedback has been amazing. The tool has surpassed staff and patient expectations. For most the protocol consists of 3 treatments one week apart. In our experience most patients are asymptomatic by this time or show significant improvement. It's important to note that if the patient has had only minor or no improvement by this point, the patient should be reassessed and treatment options discussed.
Shockwave has been a fantastic new tool and has helped us improve our outcomes with some generally challenging conditions. We have treated some of the common problems and used the tool as an adjunctive option for some less common problems to improve recovery times. On the right I listed some common issues we have used Shockwave Therapy for. It is best to contact Healthview for information and/or talk with one of our professionals to see if Shockwave is for you.
