Shockwave Therapy

At One-Stop Healthcare Clinic, located conveniently in Allencourt Plaza in Richmond Hill, we offer advanced Shockwave Therapy, an innovative, non-invasive treatment designed to accelerate tissue healing and relieve pain. This therapy involves high-frequency, short-duration bursts of high-energy pulses transmitted into injured tissues.

Shockwave Therapy, also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, sends acoustic waves into the affected tissues. These high-intensity pulses of mechanical energy stimulate a healing response by aggravating the injured tissues at a cellular level. This process promotes tissue regeneration and revascularization, accelerates tissue repair and growth, and reduces scar tissue production.

Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?

While some discomfort is possible during treatment, most patients tolerate Shockwave Therapy well. The intensity of the energy can be adjusted to your comfort level. The most intense discomfort occurs during the application of shockwaves, which lasts only 3-5 minutes. Most patients experience significant relief following the treatment, although some soreness and inflammation may occur for about 24 hours post-treatment.

If Shockwave Therapy is recommended for you, expect to undergo 3-5 sessions typically scheduled one week apart. Additional sessions may be necessary for further treatment of joint or soft tissue restrictions and to progress movement training exercises. Many patients notice benefits immediately, even after the first session.
