Depending on the severity of your injury and what you are being treated for, you could feel relief after one or two treatments. Because everyone responds to treatment differently, it’s impossible to predict how long after your acoustic wave therapy sessions you’ll feel great. During the treatment, the hyperstimulation of your tissues can create a temporary anesthesia effect making you feel great immediately following your session. For some people this anesthesia-like feelings lasts for hours. For others, it can last for days. Generally, it takes about 12 weeks after your treatment to experience the full benefits of this therapy.
