Shock wave therapy: A non-surgical approach to chronic pain relief

Shockwave Therapy

HealthMax Physiotherapy Clinics in Brampton is committed to providing patients with the exceptional integrated treatments and services required for pain relief and mobility rehabilitation.

Pain, whether it be short-term or chronic, can be debilitating. The toll it can take on one’s quality of life cannot be underestimated. Whether the result of a work-related or sports injury, disease or age-related challenges, it can become an all-consuming focus overshadowing the enjoyment of day-to-day life.

One treatment option for a wide array of conditions is the use of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) — a non-surgical approach to treating pain and restoring mobility.

Using a handheld shock wave therapy unit, your highly trained health care professional will deliver high-energy acoustic waves in brief, strong energy pulses into the painful area of the body that requires treatment. Simply put, the force of these pulses penetrates and interacts with the affected tissue to stimulate healing, producing such results as stimulating capillary growth, dissolving calcium buildup, releasing trigger points associated with taut muscle fibres, accelerating the production of collagen fibres, reducing inflammation and more.

The positive effects of this affordable and non-invasive form of treatment can often be felt after a few treatments, depending on the severity of the condition being treated, and it doesn’t have side effects. Patients have experienced non-surgical relief and accelerated healing of such conditions as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, tendonitis, scar tissue, shin splints, rotator cuff tendinitis and much more.
