Ossotron said in the other board:
Just in case there is some confusion- some cases report reduction of pain in just a few days, however, typical patients report substantial results at 6 weeks and pain free at 12. This is due to the mechanism of healing. Shockwaves, up to 6000 psi, result in localized trauma. Trauma leads to neovascularity and tissue growth. This typicallly takes up to six weeks . Good luck. I will see you in Toronto. I am a represenative of the company with the US distribution rights to the product and I shall be there to accompany Dr. Wolfgang Schaden, the president of the European Society for Musculoskeletal Shockwave Therapy.
