Reduced Pain and Inflammation Successfully Treated with Shockwave Therapy

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?


Shockwave therapy Toronto uses sound waves to reduce pain and inflammation from causes such as treatment for arthritis, car accident injury treatment, knee and joint stiffness, sports injuries, joint injuries, plantar fasciitis and muscle stiffness.

Shockwave therapy in Toronto works by using painless bursts of energy vibrations to stimulate the body’s natural repair system.

These waves are produced from a device that presses against the skin, much like ultrasound technology.

The shockwaves stimulate healing tissue on the cellular level and can be an effective means to relieve pain and chronic pain quickly. Effects are usually fast acting and patients report immediate relief shortly following treatment sessions.

Unlike many treatments for degenerative joint disease, this therapy does not require invasive surgery and rehabilitation periods can be minimized.
The patient experiences minimal discomfort at the time of treatment and no side effects during or after normal activity.

Numerous health groups have endorsed this technology – including American Medical Association (AMA) and Royal College of Physicians which reports that more than 120 clinical studies observed its success treating sinusitis, reducing back pain as well as fractured bones.

Over 82% of patients report less or no more pain after Shockwave treatment. It has been approved for use by the FDA and found that people mostly recover sooner with fewer side effects.

After treatment, you may experience temporary soreness or tenderness for a few days following the procedure as the shockwaves stimulate an inflammatory response.  This is the body healing itself naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions About Shockwave Therapy

How does shockwave therapy work, and what specific conditions or injuries does it effectively treat?

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (outside the body) utilizes acoustic waves to stimulate healing in targeted areas to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. At Core Wellness Centre, we’ve found it particularly effective for conditions such as tendinopathies and calcific shoulder tendinopathy.

What are the potential benefits of choosing shockwave therapy over other traditional physiotherapy treatments for my particular condition?

Shockwave therapy offers a non-surgical and accelerated healing, making it a preferred choice for many patients for its ability to stimulate cellular repair with pulses of mechanical energy as an effective treatment option.

Is shockwave therapy painful, and how is the discomfort managed during and after the treatment?

While some patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, our therapists prioritize patient comfort. We employ techniques to manage any discomfort, and post-treatment, patients may experience temporary soreness, which typically resolves within a day or two.

Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with shockwave therapy, and how common are they?

This has been shown to be generally safe with minimal side effects. Some patients may experience minor bruising, swelling, or redness, but these are usually temporary and resolve quickly. Severe side effects are rare.

What is the typical duration and frequency of shockwave therapy sessions, and when can one expect to see noticeable improvements in their condition?

Sessions typically last 15-30 minutes, and the number of sessions depends on the specific condition. Patients often notice improvements after a few sessions, but full benefits may become apparent over the course of several weeks.

Is shockwave therapy covered by health insurance, and if not, what are the associated costs?

Coverage varies, and we recommend checking with your Extended Health Care Insurance provider. If not covered, our clinic offers transparent pricing, and the number of sessions of your treatment plan required can vary but is typically determined during the initial assessment.
