Do I need a doctor referral?
No, you can call our office and set up an appointment any time!
What is insurance authorization?
Sometimes, certain insurance plans require a pre-authorization before we can begin treatments. We will take care of the entire authorization process. After your consult with the doctor, we will submit the consult note to the insurance company for approval.
How many treatments will I need?
Number of treatments will vary based on the condition. Typically, treatments will range from 5-12 days.
Will I need to have treatments every day?
Patients have shown to have better results when treatments are delivered on consecutive days. Of course, we will sometimes run into weekends and holidays, but we prefer to have the treatment sessions as close together as possible.
How long does each treatment session take?
Treatments are very quick. Most patients are in and out of the office in 5 minutes, with the actual treatment lasting about 2 minutes.
Do the treatments hurt?
Our treatments are completely painless. Patients do not see or hear anything during the treatment. Sometimes a slight vibration can be felt when the body part is resting on the applicator.
When will I start to notice a difference in pain?
Every patient responds differently. Sometimes patients will notice a difference mid-way through the treatment regimen, but it can take up to a month to notice the full clinical benefit.
Why do I need x-rays?
We must take your x-rays before you can begin treatment. Our x-rays are used for measurements and treatment planning. We do not diagnose conditions based off of the x-rays, they are strictly for the planning process.
Will I have any restrictions while on treatment?
We ask that you do not over-use the body part while on treatment. A general rule of thumb is to just take it easy and give that area time to heal while we decrease the inflammation. Normal activity can be resumed one month post treatments.
