Gel is applied to the area being treated. A probe that delivers the shock waves is applied to the treatment area and shock waves are delivered.
How are treatments performed?
Does it hurt?
When shocks are delivered to areas where there is no tissue damage, no discomfort is felt. When shocks are delivered to an area with tissue damage some discomfort is felt for the length of the shock, but it is not sustained beyond the shock delivery.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on the condition being treated. In many cases only 3-5 treatments are needed but in some cases more can be necessary.
How long is the treatment session?
Most sessions take 10-15 minutes.
What are the possible side effects?
While a person may experience an increased energy level the day of a treatment, there are virtually no negative side effects. Patients can return to work or school immediately after a treatment. There is no downtime.
What do I wear for my TRT treatment?
Wear clothing that is comfortable or that can be easily moved to expose the area needing treatment.
What are the contraindications for TRT?
TRT is contraindicated for those with a cardiac pacemaker, those that are pregnant, those taking NSAIDs, and those that have had corticosteroids injected within the last month.
TRT research on the use and benefits has been and continues to be ongoing for more than 30 years.
