Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive solution for chronic musculoskeletal pain.


Shockwave therapy is one of the most effective therapies in the treatment of many chronic soft tissue disorders. Clinical research has shown shockwave therapy to be between 80-90% effective at treating soft tissue, tendon, heel, joint pain many other conditions. In combination with Physiotherapy or Chiropractic it is extremely effective in reducing or eliminating pain.

Shockwave can reduce the need for the use of pain medication and can be very effective in conjunction with exercise based therapy.



Shockwave Therapy is a non invasive and effective treatment for many painful conditions. Shockwave stimulates the regeneration of injured tissues that have not responded to other therapies or traditional modalities or treatments.

Many painful conditions respond well to Shockwave Therapy. Patients typically experience results after 3 - 6 treatments (depending on condition).



Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute, subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. 


Depending on the condition, a total of 3-6 treatments with 5-10 day intervals is the typical treatment frequency. Treatment results can be evaluated after 3-4 sessions, but additional improvement can be seen within 2 weeks and up to 3 months after treatment is completed.
