Ottawa Shockwave Therapy
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.
Common conditions that can be treated with shockwave therapy
Chronic tendinopathies, including but not limited to:
- Rotator cuff tendinopathy
- Lateral epicondylopathy of the elbow (tennis elbow)
- Medial epicondylopathy of the elbow (golfer’s elbow)
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Patella tendinopathy (jumper’s knee)
- Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS)
- Adductor tendinopathy
- Calcific tendinopathy
- Heel spurs
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.
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.
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
