SHOCKWAVE THERAPY

Delta Physiotherapy & Rehab offers the latest technologies in movement rehabilitation.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that creates low energy acoustic waves and then applies them to an injury through direct contact. These acoustic waves result in cell repair, pain relief and better mobility.

Located in Mississauga, we provide shockwave therapy to Brampton and GTA residents as well.

Benefits

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Stimulated collagen production
  • Release trigger points (muscle knots)
  • Non-surgical
  • No side effects
  • Quick recovery

Depending on the level of pain the patient is experiencing, a 5-minute treatment might feel a bit uncomfortable. The therapy may also cause inflammation. However, this process increases circulation quickening the healing process.

How many sessions will I need?

At our practice, we make sure your treatment is as comfortable as possible, giving you the best results in the shortest time frame. The sessions of shockwave therapy depend on the type of treatment the patient requires.

Although, in most cases, they are about 3-6 treatments. In a typical session, a patient will receive anywhere between 1000-4000 pulses (depending on the condition and injury area).

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?

More than 80% of our patients experience relief right after the first treatment. However, within 2-4 hours of treatment, some experience soreness of the treated area. This soreness is normal and is tolerable.

SHOCKWAVE THERAPY FAQ

Shockwave therapy isn’t a well-known form of treatment, which means it can be easy to mistake it for the outdated shock treatments that were once used to treat mental health problems. Since it’s vastly different from these aforementioned practices, it’s natural to have questions.

We are answering some of the most common questions we hear about shockwave therapy. If your questions aren’t answered below, please feel free to contact us. We are happy to provide additional insight into the process, as well as the mechanism that makes it so effective.

No. Shockwave therapy might cause slight discomfort, but it’s not painful.

It’s a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option. The discomfort you may experience will be localized to the area that is being treated and it will only last for the duration of the treatment. It’s often described as a pulsing sensation against the skin.

Regardless of how you feel after your treatment, it’s best to give the body time to relax.You may have experienced mild discomfort during the procedure or it may have been a relaxing experience.

We highly recommend that you rest and give the area that was treated at least 48 hours to recover. This will ensure that you get the best results from your treatment. You will be able to continue with non-strenuous daily activities like driving.

Absolutely. Shockwave therapy is safe and effective. However, you should always be sure to seek out a suitably qualified practitioner to administer the treatment.

Shockwave therapy is non-surgical, non-invasive and effective at treating various ailments, including musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain. It has proven to be an excellent resource when other treatment protocols have failed to deliver results. It is also used for pain relief and can reduce inflammation.

There are minor side effects of shockwave therapy. In comparison with the surgical counterparts of the treatment, recovery time is minimal. The side effects always outweigh the benefits of the treatment.
