Shockwave Therapy Victoria BC is a non-surgical treatment of soft tissue, bone, and joint pain. Shockwave Therapy provides a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical alternative for those suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinopathy, Tennis Elbow, Jumpers Knee, Stress Fractures, Rotator Cuff, Tendonitis, Bursitis, and anyone suffering from joint and tendon disorders.
There are no side effects or long term effects with shockwave therapy and no extended recovery period. Shockwave therapy improves the metabolism in the pain region, increases blood circulation, promotes and accelerates the recovery of injured tissue. and stimulates the body’s repair mechanisms. Damaged tissue gradually regenerates and eventually heals.
Shockwave Therapy is particularly good at pain management by stimulating a metabolic reaction in the affected tissue, causing stress fibers to change in their permeability, breaks down calcific deposits which induces an analgesic reaction mechanism, which blocks pain messages.
During a Shockwave treatment, a high-intensity sound wave interacts with the tissues of the body, effectively reinjuring the area on a cellular level and breaking up scarring that has penetrated tendons and ligaments. The controlled reinjuring of tissue allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bone cells. The resulting revascularization leads to faster healing, reversal of chronic inflammation, stimulation of collagen and a return to pre-injury activity levels.
