Shockwave

Shockwave therapy is a form of treatment that uses sound waves transmitted through the skin into painful tissues.  The shockwaves are produced by a change in pressure that sends energy output from an applicator through the body tissues. 

Shockwave is a non-invasive form of treatment that has been around for 20 years now, initially being used to treat kidney stones. Shockwave produces acoustic waves that help in treating a number of musculoskeletal conditions, especially in those chronic situations termed tendinopathy. The energy that is produced by the acoustic waves promotes blood flow, regeneration of tissue, and collagen production. 

Shockwave is great for treating:

  • Jumper’s knee
  • Tennis elbow
  • Heel spur
  • Chronic tendinopathy 
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)
  • Calcification
  • Hip pain
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Trigger points
  • Acute muscle cramps

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
