Initial shockwave and treatments refer to the first session of shockwave therapy for a patient seeking chiropractic care. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive technique that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in the affected area. During the initial session, the chiropractor will perform an evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for the patient, including the number of treatments required to achieve the desired outcome. The session itself involves the application of a handheld device that emits shockwaves to the affected area, which can cause a mild tingling or pulsing sensation. The treatment typically lasts between 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the patient's needs. After the initial session, the chiropractor may recommend a series of treatments spaced out over several weeks to achieve optimal results. Shockwave therapy has been shown to be effective in treating a range of musculoskeletal conditions, including tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and chronic pain.
