Shockwave Therapy Calgary

Say "goodbye" to Aches and Pain

Shockwave therapy Calgary, is a highly effective treatment used to accelerate rehabilitation in tissues that are typically slow to heal or have a tendency to heal incompletely

Shockwave Therapy in Calgary

Shockwave Physiotherapy may sound intimidating but in reality, it is as safe as any other treatment and is extremely effective for pain relief. The principle of shockwave therapy is the use of high-pressure sonar shockwaves through the skin. These acoustic shockwaves disintegrate calcified tissue and facilitate repair. This treatment has been known to promote faster injury treatment.

At Caring Hand Physiotherapy, we offer Shockwave therapy in Calgary, AB as a safe and effective method for pain management

What Exactly is Shockwave Therapy?

Your physical therapist will assess you and if the analysis confirm you can benefit from shockwave therapy, you will be given an appropriate therapy plan. The therapist will talk you through the process as well as ensure you have an understanding about how to go about your daily activities between sessions.
Shockwave treatment is usually done one session a week for 5 to7 weeks, depending on results. The treatment may cause mild discomfort for a few seconds, but your therapist can vary the intensity to make sure you are comfortable. 

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive technique that entails sending a progression of low energy pulses on the injury through your skin using a gel medium. We use a specialized electrical stimulation device for targeted treatment and pain relief.

Cellular Level Changes

A cellular increase in free radicals stimulate the release of natural metabolites that help prevent pain and resolve inflammation.

Reduction in Muscle Spasticity

Research has demonstrated that SWT can reduce contractile activity of muscle and break neuro-cognitive pain patterns resulting in decreased muscle spasm, and elimination of myofascial trigger points.

Reduced Pain

Shockwaves act on interneurons in our A-β nerve fibers preventing communication of pain to our brain. This is known as the Gate Control Mechanism and it has been shown to effectively reduce pain levels.

Consider Shockwave Therapy for the following conditions:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
