What are the number of treatments that are advised and what intervals are needed in between them?

Generally, a patient needs at least five treatment bouts in total and they should be timed at least one every week. When a PRP is also a part of the therapy then this therapy should be performed on the procedure day and it should be resumed at least two weeks post PRP.A few patients also report being relieved of pain immediately, however the injured tissues need natural healing which occurs nearly 8 weeks after the treatment. In between the treatments we can get back to regular activities that they can tolerate well.

All too frequently, people speculate their only alternative is to grab pain medication or undergo an expensive surgery instead of getting eswt treatment in singapore, and sometimes maybe traumatic surgical treatment, or just bear the discomfort as they attempt to deal with their everyday responsibilities and duties.
