Assessment: $150 | Locations: Fort Saskatchewan & High Performance Centre
Shock Wave therapy is a physical therapy modality that involves sending high frequency Shock Waves into the body. It is often used for tendonitis, calcifications, shin splints, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and bursitis. First and foremost, the effect of Shock Wave is pain relief. Other effects include inflammation reduction and stimulation of C nerve fibers to reduce the body’s pain response. Shock Wave therapy works at a deeper level than therapeutic ultrasound, and can be used to break down calcification and scar tissue.

The treatment is simple and fast acting; effects may be noticed within days of your first treatment. Shock Wave therapy is approximately 80% effective and non-invasive. Some common applications of Shock Wave include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Shin Splints
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Osgood Schlatters
  • Chronic tendon junction pain
  • Frozen (calcified) Shoulder
  • Hallux Rigidus
