Shockwave Therapy

New Westminster and Burnaby Shockwave Therapy

We are proud to offer shockwave therapy in Burnaby & New Westminster with the latest technology for helping our patients. Shockwave therapy works by sending a pressure wave into the injured area to help breakdown scar tissue and relieve pain by stimulating growth of new tissue. It has an amazing success rate of 90% for plantar fasciitis and 91% for calcific tendinitis in the rotator cuff/shoulder, according to studies published in the Journal of Orthopedic Research and the Journal of the American Medical Association, respectively.

The best part is, most conditions need only three to six treatments to be resolved. Research has shown that when the pressure waves are sent to damaged tissue, it stimulates new blood vessel growth which provides nutrients that lead to the growth of new muscle, tendon, and even bone! In some cases, it is also used for helping fractures to properly heal and better align. These benefits make shockwave an excellent treatment strategy that is very safe, does not damage tissue, and can help avoid the uncessary risks and recovery times associated with certain surgeries.
