Shockwave Therapy is now a very popular choice among athletes for injuries to the tendon. At Ace Physiotherapy – Downtown Toronto we are bringing this cutting-edge innovative technology to our downtown Toronto patients.

Shockwave Therapy

The Storz MP200 Radial Shockwave Treatment device is utilized by our Registered Physiotherapists in downtown Toronto. It is a safe and effective treatment that uses acoustic waves to permeate the soft tissues and bone. Shockwave treatment is especially effective in places where tissues connect to the bones; for example, the hip, shoulder, elbow, knee, foot and all trigger points.

How does it function?

With a wand-like gadget, your Physiotherapist applies the waves of acoustic pressure around the harmed region. While the waves infiltrate, they stimulate the region on a cellular level, breaking up scar tissues, and stimulate the healing of bone cells and veins. Shockwave Therapy also reduces the pain receptors’ sensitivity (thus reducing pain) and speeds up the natural ability of the body to heal.

What number of Shockwave Therapies would be needed for a particular condition?

The number the nature of the problem, and the individuals own health.  While tissue recovery often takes up to 3 months, more than 80 percent of patients give feedback of a noteworthy reduction of pain after just three Shockwave therapy, and only about 5-10 treatment is enough to resolve the condition of most patients. In medical research, this therapy has demonstrated a change in 77 percent of tennis elbow cases, 91 percent of calcific tendonitis cases, and 90 percent of plantar fasciitis cases.

What is the duration of one Shockwave Therapy session?

Shockwave treatment takes around 15 minutes it is with additional Physical Therapy treatments, such as stretches and exercises, mobilizations, taping, warmth or massage.
