If you’re consistently experiencing pain in the same areas of the body, it may be time to consider BTL Shockwave therapy. Dr. Alexander Bader, Dr. Maria Papadopoulou, and their dedicated team of trained professionals are highly qualified to provide the care you need with personalized BTL Shockwave therapy in London.
What Is BTL Shockwave Therapy?
BTL Shockwave therapy devices emit acoustic wave energy to trigger regenerative processes within the body that can alleviate discomfort caused by multiple musculoskeletal issues. This non-invasive therapy can target specific pain points for the treatment of chronic conditions such as:
- Carpel tunnel
- Tennis elbow (epicondylitis)
- Jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis)
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Lower back pain
- Heel spurs
How Does the BTL Shockwave Device Help Patients?
Acoustic wave therapy with the BTL Shockwave device can provide pain reduction and improvements in musculoskeletal health and function at the treatment site by supporting the following:
- Formation of new blood vessels to regenerate damaged tissue
- Stimulation of collagen production to repair certain structures
- Decalcification of tendons
- Release of growth factors
- Reversal of inflammation
Am I a Good Candidate for BTL Shockwave Therapy?
BTL Shockwave therapy can be an excellent choice for patients dealing with ongoing, isolated pain that isn’t easily reduced or resolved through other means. It is a favorite among athletes, but non-athletes can also benefit immensely from this treatment.
Shockwave therapy is considered safe for most healthy adults, but it is essential that you provide us with a detailed record of your current and past medical conditions during your consultation. Patients who are pregnant and/or those with certain health issues will be advised to pursue alternative therapeutic treatments to ease their symptoms.
What to Expect During BTL Shockwave Therapy
Your BTL Shockwave session will take place at our conveniently located Marylebone facility. First, we’ll find the exact location of your pain using palpation, a technique that feels similar to a firm massage. Once the precise spot has been pinpointed, a gel is applied, which will facilitate efficient energy transfer from the device into the body.
Next, the BTL Shockwave device is held against the treatment area and turned on, releasing rapid pulses of acoustic wave energy. This activates the body’s wound-healing processes where needed.
What to Expect After BTL Shockwave Therapy
After a BTL Shockwave appointment, you’ll be able to head back to work or your daily routine. You may still feel sore for the next few hours, but the severity of your symptoms should gradually diminish over the next couple of days. We may recommend that you refrain from intense physical activity during this recovery time.
For optimal improvements, multiple sessions are usually suggested. Their frequency will vary based on the extent of your symptoms and the specific area(s) of pain. During your consultation, we’ll be happy to listen to your concerns and come up with an individualized treatment plan that matches your needs.
How Much Does BTL Shockwave Therapy Cost?
Once we plan your exact care strategy, we can advise you of the total price. The cost of this procedure in London depends on the following:
- How many areas of the body are experiencing pain
- The size of the treatment area(s)
- The total length of the sessions
- How many sessions are needed for maximum relief
