"Rosen was absolutely fantastic! I wish we had that session when we got the device. It makes so much more sense now: how to maintain it, how to use it effectively for different injuries, the appropriate positioning of the head, number of shocks, intensity, etc. Rosen was SO helpful. I recommend to anyone who purchases a shockwave device to take this training session before even turning it on for the first time."
