A Non-Invasive Method to Promote Healing
Shockwave Therapy Langley
If you’re seeking a non-invasive treatment option for lingering injuries in the Langley area, shockwave therapy may be worth considering. This therapy uses acoustic wave pulsations delivered through the skin via a gel medium to stimulate the regeneration of bone, tendon, ligament, and other cells, and to help heal even chronic injuries. Originally developed as a method for non-surgically removing kidney stones and gallstones, shockwave therapy has been successfully used to treat a variety of conditions that do not respond to other treatments.
The most typical cases shockwave therapy can be applied to are those of lingering tendinopathy, or tendon conditions that do not respond to other treatments that occur as a result of sport, overuse, or repetitive strain, such as:
• Plantar fasciitis
• Calcific tendinosis of the shoulder
• Rotator cuff
• Jumper’s knee
• Tennis and golfer’s elbows
Shockwave therapy may cause mild discomfort, however only lasting a short period of time. The intensity of the shockwaves can be adjusted to stay comfortable.
As shockwave therapy stimulates an inflammatory response, you may experience temporary tenderness, soreness, or swelling for a few days after the treatment as a result of the body naturally healing itself.
