Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy consists of high-intensity sound waves interacting with body tissues. Radial shockwave therapy treats shoulder tendinopathy, and calcific tendinitis. It is effective in achilles tendinopathy, chronic heel pain and painful stump neuroma.Radial shockwave therapy can help decrease pain in the body. This pain relief occurs by over-stimulating nerves to reduce their signals to the brain. It can also reduce pain by tissue healing, calcification break down, and its effect on cells. Devices used can vary in design, depending on the type of shockwave produced. Shockwaves can be either focused shockwaves or radial shockwaves.


A common questions we get is what is the cost of a shockwave therapy treatment. In Canada, extra-corpeal shockwave therapy cost varies from clinic to clinic. Prices can be determined by the region, type of shockwave equipment, expertise of clinic, and cost of clinical maintenance. Prices can vary from $100-$300 depending on some of the above.
