Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment offered by our Scarborough location used to relieve a variety of painful conditions. It has applications in areas such as physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and orthopedics and works by generating wave pulses similar to sound waves.
As a non-surgical process, it offers the advantage of promoting bone and tissue healing with a minimum of discomfort and recovery time. Shockwave therapy has successfully been in use for years, and the technology is gaining in popularity among practitioners.
Shockwave therapy at our Scarborough clinic employs high-energy acoustic waves that interact with tissues in such a way as to promote regeneration and regrowth at the cellular level.
The application of these waves to affected areas of the body supports several healing processes, including increasing blood vessel formation as well as helping to activate mast cells responsible for reducing inflammation.
Shockwave therapy is used extensively for foot conditions and has proven extremely beneficial in treating the following conditions:
The key advantage of this technique is the fact that it is completely non-invasive. The treatment itself is relatively free of discomfort, only takes a few minutes, and patients can resume most normal activities immediately after.
There are many benefits to shockwave therapy available from our Scarborough clinic. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready to explain the process and how it can help you experience reduced pain levels and inflammation.
