Shockwave therapy is an innovative, non-invasive treatment offered to people in Vaughan by the physiotherapists in our Woodbridge clinic. Also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, this new treatment involves bursts of high frequency, high energy pulses which are transmitted into injured and painful tissues.
To accelerate tissue healing and provide offshoot pain reduction, the short duration, high energy impulses of mechanical energy activate the injured target tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, bone, etc.) at a cellular level. This stimulates a healing response in the tissue targeted. Ultimately, this approach is capable of accelerating tissue healing while also minimizing scar tissue production.
