Shockwave therapy in Bunyip includes stopping the heel on a car that pulls out high-energy sound waves in your heel through the skin. These "sound waves" penetrate the structures of soft tissues and heel bone and destroy some of the scar tissue that causes your discomfort. The special products in your body that heal tissues are attracted to the shock waves and a healing response occurs over time!
A study was conducted by a renowned specialist who specialized in this technique with patients 9 years after the procedure. 88% of the patients were extremely satisfied with the procedure, 84% of the patients had an improvement in heel pain, and all patients returned in less than 4 weeks!
Heel pain is a common complaint in patients treated at major health centers in the active population! Many patients, young and old, are competitive and/or tennis players and golfers. These individuals usually complain of heel pain (s) most intense, with the first steps taken during the contest that "rises" as the game continues. Sometimes painful pain feels in the arches and even behind the heel.
Eventually, the pain becomes aggravating enough to feel with every step that tries to return to serving or every long journey on the tracks. When the spring support, personalized orthoses, and cortisone injections fail, that is, when shockwave therapy is introduced!
So, do you wonder what recovery process is after Bunyip shockwave therapy?
The process lasts approximately hour on foot. Depending on the origin of the heel pain (at least 24 hours, up to 2 weeks), the patients enter, have procedures and leave a boot-wearing for a period of time not specified at the discretion of your doctor.
Patients report no pain during the procedure and slight sensitivity after the procedure of about 48-72 hours. You can go, drive, go to the grocery store, sunbathe and swim and go for dinner on the evening of the procedure! Again, there are no hospitals, no surgery room, no surgical blade, no bandage, no stitches, no PAIN!
How many treatments?
The number of treatments depends on the type of Bunyip shockwave therapy recommended for you, as well as your personal schedule and flexibility. To sum things up, there are two types of shock wave therapy - High Energy and Low Energy. Treatment with strong energy shock waves requires treatment, and the waves have a higher frequency. Low energy is a weekly treatment for 5 weeks, and the sound waves have a lower frequency. Patients respond positively to both intense therapy and energy-shock therapy.
What are the disadvantages?
Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover the procedure, despite Shockwave's impressive beneficial results in medical literature. Therefore, shock shock therapy is an extra-pocket expense. The medical community hopes that shock therapy will be compensated by insurance companies in the near future.
