WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?

Shockwave therapy in Edmonton is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.

During treatment, the clinician uses a device to deliver high-intensity sound waves to the affected area of the body.The shockwave therapy device delivers high-energy sound waves to the affected area through a handheld applicator.The tissues absorb the energy from the sound waves, promoting increased blood flow and new blood vessel formation. This process can help stimulate the body’s natural healing response and reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. During treatment, the patient may experience some discomfort or pain, but this is generally mild and short-lived. The clinician determines the length and frequency of the shockwave therapy treatment based on the specific condition and symptom severity.In an outpatient setting, each session usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.

Many musculoskeletal conditions in Edmonton are effectively and safely treated with Shockwave therapy, serving as an alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments. However, it is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of shockwave therapy with your therapist at Glenridding Physio before undergoing treatment.

  • Tendinitis: Overuse or repetitive motions can cause inflammation of the tendons, resulting in tendinitis. Shockwave therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation and improve tendon function.
  • Tennis elbow: Tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in the elbow joint. Shockwave therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation and promote healing.
  • Rotator cuff tendinitis: Rotator cuff tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendons in the shoulder. Shockwave therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation and improve shoulder function.
