Shockwave therapy employs the use of acoustic pulses to stimulate regeneration in the target tissues. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that is especially effective in the treatment of chronic tendon/soft tissue problems such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, calcific tendonitis, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendonitis. Chronic muscle issues like persistent trigger points can also be released using shockwave therapy. Old muscle strains (hamstring, groin, calf) that continue to nag or be problematic are also prime indications for the use of Shockwave Therapy. Extended Health Insurance plans will cover most of the Shockwave Therapy under your physiotherapy coverage when administered by a Registered Physiotherapist.
