Shockwave Therapy Edmonton
Shockwave Therapy Edmonton
Shockwave Therapy is a scientifically proven, highly effective non-surgical treatment that harnesses intense but very short energy waves to heal chronic, painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. We utilize shockwave therapy to provide targeted and innovative solutions for our patient's discomfort.
Conditions Treated by Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy has proven its versatility in treating a wide array of musculoskeletal conditions. Among them, plantar fasciitis, a common foot disorder causing heel pain, responds exceptionally well to this treatment, bringing relief to countless patients. Similarly, lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, an overuse injury causing elbow pain, can be effectively managed with shockwave therapy.
Another prevalent condition, patellar tendinitis or jumper’s knee, characterized by inflammation or injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap to your shinbone, shows positive results with this innovative treatment. The same holds true for calcific tendonitis of the shoulder, where calcium deposits cause shoulder pain and stiffness. Shockwave therapy can break down these calcium deposits, promoting healing and reducing pain.
Shockwave therapy works remarkably well for conditions like Achilles tendinopathy, rotator cuff tendinitis, and greater trochanteric pain syndrome. This non-invasive treatment targets the affected area, triggering the body’s natural healing response, making it an excellent therapeutic option for numerous other joint and muscle disorders.
The Process of Shockwave Therapy at Eastwood
At Eastwood, we strive for a holistic, patient-centric approach. Our trained physiotherapists conduct a thorough initial assessment to evaluate the suitability of shockwave therapy for your specific condition. If found suitable, a specialized hand-held device is placed on the skin, and shockwaves are delivered through the skin to the affected area. The entire procedure is typically completed within 15 to 20 minutes. The number of sessions required depends on the condition's severity and the patient's response to the treatment.
Benefits and Effectiveness of Shockwave Therapy
The benefits of shockwave therapy extend far beyond immediate pain relief. One of the foremost advantages is its non-invasive nature, requiring no incisions or injections. This significantly reduces the complications associated with surgical interventions and the risk of infections and means shorter recovery times.
Shockwave therapy improves the metabolism in the affected area and enhances blood circulation, thereby accelerating the body's innate healing process. Targeting the root cause of the pain relieves discomfort and helps restore function, enabling patients to regain mobility and return to their regular activities.
By initiating the body's natural healing mechanisms, it provides long-lasting recovery, not just temporary relief.
The treatment also has the added advantage of being adaptable. It can be adjusted to cater to each patient's unique needs and tolerance levels, ensuring a personalized and comfortable treatment experience. In many cases, patients have reported significant improvements after just a few sessions.
In summary, shockwave therapy at Eastwood Physiotherapy Clinic is more than a pain-relief treatment. It is a holistic approach to health designed to help you reclaim your active life.
Safety and Considerations in Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave therapy is generally considered safe. However, like any therapeutic procedure, it may cause minor side effects such as temporary discomfort, bruising, swelling, and numbness. It is not recommended for patients who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, are on anticoagulant therapy, or have malignancy in the target area. At Eastwood, our therapists prioritize your safety and comfort, ensuring that all treatments adhere to the highest standards of care.
