What are shockwaves?

Shockwave Therapy is an advanced medical treatment that has the power to regenerate tissue. These fast sound pulses can stimulate the cellular activity of stem cells, muscle, ligament and tendon tissue. Shockwaves promote rapid tissue healing and pain relief. Often described as a deep ache and snapping tension. When applied, most patients report feeling immediate relief of tension.

Shockwaves are proven to get you feeling your best and release chronic and nagging tissue tension. We offer two types of shockwave therapy at our Edmonton Shockwave and Physio Clinic! Including Radial Pressure Waves & Focus Shockwaves.
We Use Both Focus and Radial Shockwave Therapy!

Extracorpeal Focus Shockwave

 
The true form of shockwave. This type of energy delivers deep and penetrating sound waves. 

Highly effective for stubborn tendinitis, bursitis, chronic nagging pain, inflammation, and cell activation. 

Radial Pressure Wave 


This type of energy is highly effective for smoothing tight muscles, increasing blood flow and removing pain. 

Highly effective for joint pain, chronic muscle knots, trigger points.
 


What Can Shockwaves Do For Your Body?

Shockwaves enter your body to remove pain, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow. This can create balance in the musculoskeletal system. Improved muscle firing, strength and endurance can benefit all patients living with pain.

Shockwaves are the ‘trigger’ for cell activity. They can even influence stem cell activity (happy cells). Shockwave therapy is most effective when combined with traditional physiotherapy techniques. This includes strength, endurance, proprioception, decrease sensitivity and improved circulation.

Shockwave therapy can easily and effectively treat muscle, ligament, tendon, and bone.

It is proven to be safe, non-invasive, and effective for many chronic pain, injuries and trauma.

Treatable Conditions

Muscle

Chronic muscle, ligament tightness and injuries. Get pain relief and healing.

Tendon

Tendinitis, bursitis, chronic and acute. Get relief from achilles tendon, runners knee and shoulder conditions.

Nerve

Shooting pain, radicular pain. Knock out nerve pain and get moving again! 

Successful Treatments!

Shock Wave Therapy has very high success with a wide range of conditions. It is common in rehabilitative medicine (tendon, muscle pain and tightness, inflammation).

It can effectively heal bone (breaks or stress fractures), and loss of blood flow (avascular necrosis). We use shockwaves for severe muscle tightness, ‘pinched nerves’ and radiating pain.

Shockwaves have limited side effects, pain free application and a very high success rates (70-95%).

Shockwave therapy is beneficial for trigger point therapy for the treatment of myofascial pain and highly effective for all ligament, tendon and muscular tissue.

How Effective Is Shockwave Therapy?

The success rates range from 80% to 95%. Recovery time and expectations of treatment is our priority so that all patients understand how the healing process will occur. Although treatment healing times do vary, many patients report feeling an immediate change and improvement with their pain and function.

Shockwave therapy is a highly effective treatment that can be combined with exercise, and many other modalities and treatment options.
