Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses acoustic waves pulsations to treat pains and aches. During a shockwave treatment, a wand-like applicator with pellets is applied to the affected area using compressed air. The process releases energy that promotes rapid tissue repair and cell growth as well as mobility restoration.
How Does Oakville Shockwave Therapy Work?
Shockwave therapy helps in stimulating new blood vessels and collagen production, reversing chronic inflammation, destroying calcified tissue, offering effective pain relief, and dispersing chemicals around the painful area.
Most of our patients here at our Oakville clinic, report less pain after their first treatment using Shockwave Therapy. That’s because blood flow increases to the affected area, speeding up the healing process. Shockwave Therapy also increases metabolism which enables tissue repair.
At Pathway Shockwave Therapy, we couple the treatment with physiotherapy to expedite the healing process, especially for those who are experiencing chronic and acute pain.
