Shockwave Therapy

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave treatment involves the application of short, frequent, and high intensity bursts of mechanical energy (in the form of a shockwave) into soft-tissue that is injured, scarred, or contains adhesions, is painful, or inflamed. This energy shock is not electrical, but rather a rapid high frequency vibration in the form of a Radial Pressure Wave (RPW). When appropriately applied, shockwave can increase local blood flow, improve healing response, break apart scar tissue and adhesions, reduce muscle spasm, and directly decrease pain. Most patients tolerate the treatments well, and report only mild discomfort. 

how does it work?

Shockwave therapy involves a variation of acoustic waves targeted at the given pain point or injury site to promote accelerated tissue repair and cell growth, pain relief and mobility restoration. The acoustic waves are created by pressurized air and comprised of random peaks and pressure. This energy is released at the end of the applicator and in to the tissue where scar tissue is broken down and blood flow to the area is increased.

Resulting Effects Of Acoustic Waves

  • New Blood Vessel Formation – Creation of micro-ruptures in tendon and bone
  • Reversal of Chronic Inflammation – Increase in mast cells
  • Stimulation of Collagen Production – Acceleration of procollagen Synthesis
  • Break up of Calcified Fibroblasts
  • Dispersion of Pain Mediator – Neurotransmitter substance P is interrupted
  • Release of Trigger Points – Unblocking of calcium pump promoting healthy metabolic process in microfilaments.

Does It Really Work?

There has been a lot of work done to show the effectiveness of Shockwave Therapy with patient satisfaction reaching 90% in various trials. Studies have shown the reduction and elimination of chronic pain, increase in range of motion and accelerated healing for a wide range of conditions.

We have many patients with a wide range of conditions who have seen the benefits of Shockwave Therapy, see what they have to say in our reviews and testimonials!

I have been so pleased about my entire experience so far at My Physio. Rachel has been working with me since my ACL surgery 7 weeks ago and I’m shocked at how far I’ve come with her help! She is also so fun to chat with and makes the challenging exercises enjoyable!Parul also helped me with my concussion symptoms and I finally felt steady on my feet to prepare for ACL surgery. She focuses on making sure exercises progress as you do. She is also so sweet and genuine!The receptionists and management have been so helpful with bookings, dealing with claims and my insurance company, and setting up appointments to get my custom brace made and fitted.I feel confident in the care I am receiving and I truly feel like they have my best interests in mind. I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to write about my experience in case it helps anyone thinking about choosing My Physio. Finding a good physio place that actually cares about getting you better instead of just giving you a heating pad and TENS is hard. Switching to My Physio was the best decision I could have made for my healing journey!
