Shock Wave Therapy
Why Shock Wave and How Does It Work?
Pulsed wave therapy is commonly referred to as “Shock Wave Therapy” is a relatively new form of treatment in the field of rehabilitation medicine. It was first used in Europe to break up kidney stones. Since the Food and Drug Administration approved the first machine for treatment of plantar fasciitis in 2000, the therapy has taken off and has been widely utilized in North America and is now available in Barrie. Without the risk or complications of the surgery, most patients are back on their feet within a day or so, some reporting immediate relieve.
How Does It Work?
The primary effect of the shock wave is a direct mechanical force as the wave passes through the tissue. This results in a biological reaction within the cells of that tissue (inflammation and micro-tears) which triggers the body to accelerate its natural healing response and increases blood flow.
