A majority of subjects who are experiencing only mild pain after the initial 7-day PSWT treatment continue to maintain relief over 6 months. The same is true for individuals with mild pain although there is more of a tendency to see a reduction in pain versus an increase. The majority of subjects still in severe pain after 7 days of PSWT treatment reduced their pain over 6 months.
