Shockwave Therapy Relieves Painful Tissue, Joint and Bone Conditions
Shockwave Therapy is an innovative treatment that is suitable for any person with a condition such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon problems, tennis elbow, bursitis and rotator cuff issues, just to name a few. Anyone suffering with chronic pain or tendonitis will benefit from this treatment. The best news is that shockwave therapy is affordable, non-evasive and it works. At Spectrum Physiotherapy of Newmarket, Shockwave Therapy is included in our physiotherapy service while most other clinics charge a separate fee for this treatment.
What is shockwave therapy
It is treatment with a high-intensity sound wave that interacts with the tissues of the body. It promotes supplementary blood flow, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the growth of collagen plus it helps to dissolve calcium build-up. This non-surgical treatment has no side effects and health care professionals endorse it. It is already used by orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, chiropractors, podiatrists and pain management caregivers. It is also backed by countless clinical tests that indicate a success rate of between seventy-five and ninety-one percent. For instance, ninety-one percent of Calcific Tendinitis patients improved and ninety percent of those with Plantar Fasciitis improved through simple in-office treatments with this proven technology. Unlike laser or ultrasound, RST is a proven tissue regenerator.
Patients appreciate that the three or four short shockwave therapy treatments are usually covered in full or in part by most third-party insurance companies, worker safety or insurance boards. Pain relief may come within minutes of treatment and healing within a week. It is a fast, safe way to purge pain.
Our new our Shockwave Therapy machines are built with Swiss parts and they combine both radial shock and vibration technology in one machine. Our machines are highly effective so patients only need three or four treatments with an 84 percent efficacy.
