Shockwave Therapy Ottawa: Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic offers shockwave therapy treatments to enhance the healing process, fight inflammation, eliminate pain and tenderness, and prevent hip replacement surgery.

In 79% of patients with necrosis, Shockwave therapy or Pulsed Wave Therapy also improves osteonecrosis of the femoral head. The therapy can help those with sports or overuse injuries and can benefit those undergoing physiotherapy for a range of complaints.

We are one of the few chiropractic/physiotherapy care centers in Ottawa that provide Shockwave Therapy™ to patients.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is an evidence-based, healing accelerant that stimulates tissue through mechanotransduction and induces biological changes. 

During your first appointment, your physiotherapist will start with a detailed assessment to determine if Shockwave therapy is an appropriate treatment choice for your complaint.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Treatment: Reduces Chronic Pain

The sensation of “pain” is modulated by the presence of “substance P”, a neurotransmitter in the nervous system that processes pain. A higher level of substance P is found in chronic pain patients. It can be dispersed through the help of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy.  Shockwave treatment is used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, and urology for fast pain relief and mobility restoration.

Stimulates Collagen

Heeling tissue also requires a certain type of foundation to thrive: collagen. Collagen is the gel that unites healthy tissues together. Without it, the surrounding structures collapse and scar tissue develops. Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy can accelerate pro collagen synthesis.

Dissolves Calcifications

Sometimes chronic tendinopathies can result in calcium deposits in the tendons of affected muscles, resulting in painful calcific tendinopathies, heel spurs, etc. The high amplitude sonic waves of Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy assist in treating these conditions by increasing the body’s ability to reabsorb calcium.

Creates New Blood Vessels

Damaged tissue requires oxygenated blood and necessary repair cells. The application of acoustic waves creates capillary microruptures and new blood vessel formation in tendon bone and muscle

Releases Inflammation

Research has shown that mast cells are necessary to reverse chronic inflammation. When healing is dormant, these cells are not active. Mast cells can be stimulated and awoken with Shockwave Therapy.

Releases Trigger Points

Shockwave Therapy can help resolve pain in chronic pain patients who tried everything to resolve resistant trigger points. Shockwave Therapy’s acoustic energy can unblock calcium pumps and reverse metabolic crisis in the muscle cells, therefore releasing the trigger points.

How does shockwave therapy work? 

The powerful and brief, not electrical, energy surges are sent through soft tissues at fast, regular intervals. These surges affect the blood, cells, nerves, and muscles. The natural ability of the body to heal is thereby stimulated. Shockwave therapy is used to cause separation in adhesive or scarred tissue, abate muscular spams, and diminish pain. Shockwave therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment for chronic conditions. During each treatment session, it can be combined with manual therapy to instigate the body’s own natural healing response. You may experience mild pain or discomfort. Your physiotherapist can adjust the intensity of the treatment according to the level of your comfort.

Absolutely amazing! I’m so glad that I found a place where I felt comfortable and Ramy does excellent work! This was my first time going to see a chiropractor so I was very nervous and skeptics, but they did not disappoint one bit! Excellent customer service and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t be happier with my experience! Read on Google

Prior to me, my family had a very satisfactory experience with the Clinic, and were especially talking about Dr. Maryam Hassanzadeh's expertise, experience, and devotion to ... Read on Google

As an athlete, I've been seeing Ghaith for a hip impingement injury that was restricting me from sports/workouts. Ghaith helped me get back in the action! Its always a pleasure seeing him, as he's friendly & enthusiastic, he genuinely enjoys explaining the mechanics of the injury and discussing the big picture theory (which I love as a bit of a nerd & athlete). Thanks Ghaith & Kent Chiro-Med! Read on Google
