Shockwave therapy is a treatment option available from our Thornhill clinic involving high-energy acoustic wave pulses to stimulate areas of the body affected by a wide range of chronic issues. A machine generates the waves which are applied to the body via a wand, providing measurable and an often immediate relief from discomfort.
The treatment has been around for years and has been used to treat a host of conditions. The technology is efficient and is becoming more widespread as its application to an ever-widening pool of conditions becomes apparent.
The staff at our Thornhill branch have successfully employed shockwave therapy to treat many patients suffering from both acute and chronic pain.
It’s particularly useful in treating tendonitis, tennis elbow, heel spurs, calcification, slow-healing bone fractures and plantar fasciitis. It works by promoting the following healing processes:
An essential benefit of shockwave therapy is that it accomplishes significant pain and inflammation reduction without the need for surgeries or other invasive procedures. Patients who receive shockwave therapy treatments can usually resume normal activities immediately after treatment sessions.
Treatment sessions are short, lasting a few minutes, and most patients experience a minimum of discomfort.
How many sessions you’ll require will depend on your condition. Contact the experienced shockwave therapy practitioners at our Thornhill clinic to learn how you can experience the pain-reduction benefits of this innovative technology.
