At Calgarychiro.com we like to keep up with the cutting edge techniques in treating sports related injuries, physiotherapy and sports medicine. One of our newest tools in our arsenal is our shockwave therapy
What is shockwave?
Shockwave therapy is the process of sending acoustic waves through the tissue. This causes a controlled micro-trauma in the affected tissue. This micro-trauma essentially re-injures tissue on a cellular level, and results in the break down of scar tissue that has built up in the area.
Benefits of shockwave?
Shockwave therapy has been shown to have faster healing and pain relief as well as faster restored mobility. It is non surgical and requires no pain killers making it totally noninvasive. This treatment is great for treating conditions such as tennis elbow and tendinitis of the knee, shoulder rotator cuff pain and Achilles and hamstring tendinitis.
