What are the advantages of SWT?
SWT is a non-invasive treatment used without medication e.g. cortisone injections. Patients experience pain relief and thus increased movement following therapy. Side effects are minimal.
How fast does SWT work?
The treatment can sometimes be uncomfortable but it is short in duration, 10-15 minute session is all that is necessary to successfully treat the area. A treatment can be modified to suit the patient’s pain tolerance. Patients return for 3-6 sessions to effectively treat the area. It is necessary to have successive treatment sessions. These are spaced sufficiently to allow the tissue respond to the treatment, and are usually one week apart.
