Shockwave Therapy

About

The shockwave penetrates very deep without damaging the more superficial tissues. The new tissue heals the old injury and makes the tendon or ligament stronger, thus relieving pain.

Shockwave Therapy in Calgary: Relieve Tendinitis, Muscle & Joint Pain

Shockwave therapy relieves pain by stimulating the growth of new tissue. It has an amazing success rate of 90% for plantar fasciitis and 91% for calcific rotator cuff tendonitis of the shoulder, according to studies published in the Journal of Orthopedic Research and the Journal of the American Medical Association, respectively.

Astonishingly, most conditions need only three to six once a week treatments. They work by sending a shockwave (like a tiny earthquake, not an electrical shock) into damaged tissue, stimulating blood vessel growth and providing nutrients that lead to the growth of new tendon or ligament tissue. The shockwave penetrates very deep without damaging the more superficial tissues. The new tissue heals the old injury and makes the tendon or ligament stronger, thus relieving pain.

The Importance of Growing Tissue with Shockwave Therapy

Growing new tissue helps because the word tendonitis means that the tendon is inflamed; however, when these tendons are biopsied, there are no inflammatory cells – the tendon is not inflamed degenerating. The best treatment for degenerating tissue is to grow new tissue to heal and help it stop breaking down. Shockwave Therapy does this! If you have these, or any other tendon, ligament, or muscle pain, call the chiropractors at Alberta Back and Neck Rehab & Sports Injuries Clinic in Calgary today for a consultation and examination of your issue so we can determine if shockwave therapy is likely to help you heal and get relief.
