Shockwave Therapy for Pain Relief

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for pain caused by tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries in London, Ontario. It is fast and cost-effective. It can be used on different body parts in management of chronic and acute pain like patellar tip syndrome or jumper's knee, tendinopathies, muscular strains of neck and back, elbow pain, tennis elbow pain, achilles tendonitis, shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis.

This technique first emerged around the 1980s employing mechanical acoustic waves in a procedure called extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy and since then a lot of research has been made for its safe use in orthopedics and sports injuries management. It is now one of the sought after procedures in physiotherapy and sports medicine.

Shockwaves can produce intracellular, intercellular, and extracellular responses, such as pain relief, improved blood flow, protein synthesis, and destruction of calcium deposits in musculoskeletal structures.
