What is Radial Shock Wave Therapy?

Radial shock wave therapy also known as Extracorporeal shock wave is a safe and non-invasive technology that uses a wand-like device to emit fast bursts of shock waves that penetrate soft tissues of the injured areas which:

  • Breaks up scar tissues on tendons and ligaments.
  • Creates an optimal environment for cellular repair and tissue healing.
  • Decreases sensitivity of pain receptors.
  • Increases local blood flow.
  • Regenerates blood vessels and bone cells.
  • Reverses chronic inflammation.
  • Stimulates the body’s natural healing response.

 

Why Choose our Shockwave Therapy Team?

Our cutting edge physiotherapists will take your recovery seriously. We want to help our patients reach their optimal health potential and live a pain free life. Through a detailed assessment, they will determine if you are a good candidate for shock wave therapy. With the latest research and best practice standards for shock wave therapy, our physical therapists are highly knowledgeable in human movement bio-mechanics.  At Body Restoration, we combine traditional physiotherapy treatment with shock wave treatment to facilitate a quicker recovery.  Shockwave is particulary helpful with chronic, persistent pain and is an effective non-surgical alternative to resolve your condition.  Shockwave is available in select Edmonton, Calgary and St. Albert locations.

 

What Conditions Can Radial Shock Wave Treat?

Our shockwave therapy sessions can be used effectively to treat a variety of conditions, particularly major joints that involve attachment points for tendons and ligaments. These include:

What are the potential side effects of Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave Therapy is applied without medication, for example Cortisone injections. The treatment stimulates and effectively supports the body’s self healing mechanisms. It is usual to experience immediate pain relief following the treatment and hence improved movement. Reported side effects are minimal. Your therapist will review all potential side effects with you at your visit.
