If shockwave therapy is found suitable to be a part of your treatment, you might be asked to expose the area to be treated. After gel application when your therapist starts the treatment, contrary to its name all you might feel is a series of clicks or impacts on your skin which might be slightly painful. There might be some soreness which sets in few hours after the treatment given and subsides in next few hours.
