Shockwave therapy

Shockwave is quickly becoming the treatment of choice to heal soft tissue injuries with results that last! The shockwave delivers high energy sound waves into the tissue, which triggers a biological cascade at the cellular level to activate the body’s own healing process. Shockwave stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, so the injured tissue can receive better Oxygen and cellular energy supply. This creates an environment where the tissue can repair and heal properly, even if the injury is chronic. The increased blood flow also helps flush out painful chemicals in the tissue, thus decreasing the pain you feel!

The treatment is non-surgical, non-invasive, and has excellent success rates published in research articles studying the technology. To learn more, check out the Shockwave Canada Website –
