Shockwave therapy is a highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. It is one of the most advanced and highly effective non-invasive treatment methods cleared by the health FDA and Canada. The treatment works by helping to improve the regenerative potential, enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.
Shockwave Technology, also known as EPAT and Pressure Wave, can successfully address acute and chronic pain such as: Knee Pain, Heel Pain, Foot Pain, Ankle Pain, Hamstring Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain and Hand Pain. It is also used to provide trigger point therapy, address sports injuries, scar tissue, stress fractures, enhance bone healing, sexual function and much more.
A shockwave is an intense but very short energy wave traveling faster than the speed of sound. The basic technology involved with extracorporeal shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people.
Therapy sessions are short, usually 20 – 30 minutes in length, and provide successful relief of chronic pain and restores mobility painlessly. Permanent relief typically begins about 72 hours following treatment.
Beneficial effects are often experienced after only 1 or 2 treatments and there is no downtime. The non-surgical therapy of pain eliminates pain and restores mobility, thus quickly improving patients’ quality of life.
