Shockwave Therapy

What Is Shockwave Therapy?

All physiotherapists at ALPHA Health Services are trained in delivering shockwave therapy treatment in Toronto. A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave travelling faster than the speed of sound. This energy wave travels into the soft tissue or bone, disrupting the cellular level and breaks up scar tissue. This stimulates the body to generate more blood vessels and bone cells. This increase in blood vessels leads to a faster healing, decreased pain, and a return to activity. With many soft tissue injuries in the body, scar tissue is laid down as a response. Often this scar tissue limits recovery, function, and causes pain. Shockwave therapy treatment Toronto addresses this scar tissue and is very effective in the rehabilitation process.

The basic technology involved with extracorporeal shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people. There are no side effects of this non-surgical treatment and it is available at a reasonable cost. Shockwave treatments are non-invasive and promote accelerated recovery of injured soft tissue, bone, heel and joint pain. Research shows a 75%- 95% success rate in treating conditions with shockwave therapy treatment in Toronto and across the world.
