Shockwave Therapy Treatment Nose Creek
Often called extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT for short), shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for both acute and long-term injuries without requiring the use of medication or surgery.
We use shockwave therapeutics here at Nose Creek, AB Physiotherapy because they are extremely safe and they trigger your body's natural healing response to reduce pain loss of range of motion associated with a host of musculoskeletal issues. One to three treatments of our shockwave treatment can produce pain-relieving results for several physiotherapy patients.
What is Shockwave Therapeutics?
Since the mid '90s, shockwave therapy has been a popular health care treatment choice in Canada. A physiotherapist directs shockwaves at an affected location using the device, classed as a sophisticated treatment technique.
It is not electric shocks, but acoustic waves that are responsible for shockwaves. Basically, it has the same mechanics as an ultrasound machine, just more powerful. Various sizes and shapes of applicator heads are available that can be switched out depending on the size of the treatment spot.
Physiotherapists apply gel to the treatment area and glide the applicator head back and forth over the spot where the gel was applied. A cold gel is applied with a metal applicator that resembles an ultrasound. It is much louder than an ultrasound, so do not be alarmed by the sound.
Shockwave Therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions:
Shockwave therapy can treat or improve a wide range of conditions. A knowledgeable physiotherapist will be able to determine if shockwave therapy is a suitable treatment for you and which kind of shock wave therapy would be beneficial.

1. Pain in the plantar fascia
2. Stimulates the heel
3. Tendonitis calcifica
4. Tendonitis of the patella (Jumper's Knee).
5. Tendonitis of the Achilles.
6. Trigger points in the myofascial muscles.

9. Shin Splints.
10. Friction syndrome of the iliotibial band.
11. Lumbar and cervical spine pain.
12. Tennis elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis).
13. The medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow).
What Are Shockwaves and How Do They Work?
It is possible for shockwaves to reduce pain and promote healing and blood flow in several ways. Calcium deposits can be broken down by using them. The accumulation of calcification is similar to what occurs when a person gets kidney stones, but it occurs in the muscular tissue.
In addition to stimulating tissues and bone cells to set off an inflammatory reaction, shockwaves also work to aid in the process of healing. As a result of triggering this inflammatory reaction, we are essentially encouraging the body to heal itself.
