Shockwave therapy is becoming increasingly common in Edmonton. Also known as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), uses much lower energy as compared to medical applications, and is used to treat conditions that involve ligaments and tendons. The soft energy that is used in this modality enables the body to initiate a natural healing process by accelerating procollagen synthesis, and this is most commonly used in pain management and in the treatment of muscular spasms. Many people have benefitted from shockwave therapy Edmonton.


Shockwave therapy is one of the most commonly used solutions for the treatment of chronic pain. This works by limiting the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Though this may initially trigger tenderness or swelling, it also initiates a natural healing process, thereby enabling the body to heal on its own. The shockwave therapy also does not require extra rest days, and you may be able to return to work almost immediately.

 With shockwave therapy Edmonton you can get therapy in your free time and carry forward in your day with peace.
