Shockwave Therapy

Located on Broadway, Vancouver, BC.

Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and increasing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the area of concern. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. Often, shockwave therapy is most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.

Shockwave therapy is a modality used for the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, primarily applied to chronic conditions, particularly those affecting medium to large sized tendons and their insertions on bone such as:

  • Medial Epicondyulosis (Golfer’s elbow)
  • Chronic Stress/Non-union fractures
  • Retrocalcaneal Bursitis
  • Calcific Tendonitis (supraspinatus tendon, etc)
  • Lateral Epicondylosis (Tennis elbow)
  • Patellar Tendinosis (Jumper’s knee)
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
