Shockwave Therapy Cost

Shockwave Therapy Cost in Canada!

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. Keep in mind that if shockwave treatments are performed by a physical therapist and you have physical therapy benefits, this cost can be covered depending on the amount of coverage your plan provides. 

What Things to Watch When Deciding Clinics? 

Often, patients call and ask what to look out for when deciding which clinic to attend. Below will be some good questions to ask the clinic you are choosing to pursue treatment with. 
What type of shockwave unit will you be treated with?
There are two types of shockwave therapy equipment that are available. This includes Focus Shockwave and Radial Shockwave. Typically, advanced clinics that are experts in this field will carry both types of machines. When combined, the therapist using both can target deep structures, bones, and small joints that are difficult to reach with radial shockwave devices alone. 
What is The Best Brand of Shockwave? 
There are many great radial shockwave therapy devices. Most clinics have radial radial shockwave. And it is essential that you are receiving a high quality machine that is able to treat effectively.  

The top quality machines used in Canada are:
Storz Shockwave 
EMS Swiss Doloclast Shockwave 
BTL Shockwave 

Lower Quality Machines

Chatanooga Machines 
No Name Brands
What Is Radial Vs. Focus Shockwave ?
Radial shockwave is actually a pressure wave that shoots a sound wave out of an applicator. This sound wave is produced by a bullet projecting down a tube and striking a metal applicator. This technology is perfect for smoothing muscle and knots and treating superficial tissue. 
Focus Shockwave is a deep penetrating sound wave that is able to penetrate structures like the hip joint and deep hip muscles. Due to its generation, it is able to also treat small joints effectively as well. It can easily target deep structures and can treat bone effectively. 
Who Should Perform The Treatment
Due to the potential side effects, only experts should administer this treatment. Clinicians, such as physiotherapists are well equipped with medical training to safely and effectively administer this treatment. Focus shockwave therapy carries the greatest side effect if placed over the lung or gut. It can be used in spine conditions by experts only. Always ensure your therapist  is highly qualified to be carrying out this medical treatment. 
Is Shockwave Therapy Covered? 
YES! If performed by a physical therapist you will be able to get reimbursed by your insurance company depending on your available benefits. 
Can I Speak to The Therapist? 
If you call NOW, you can book a time to speak to the therapist about your condition and gain insight into the potential of shockwave as a treatment option.
