Discover the Power of Shockwave Therapy for Musculoskeletal Conditions!

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is a cutting-edge treatment modality designed to address a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly chronic ailments affecting medium to large-sized tendons and their insertions on bones.

This innovative therapy has proven effective for various conditions, including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonopathy
  • Retrocalcaneal bursitis
  • Lateral epicondylosis (tennis elbow)
  • Medial epicondylosis (golfer’s elbow)
  • Calcific tendonitis (supraspinatus tendon, etc.)
  • Patellar tendinosis (jumper’s knee)
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Chronic stress/non-union fractures
  • Strained calves and hamstrings
  • Tendonitis in the foot and ankle, hip, or shoulder
  • Rotator cuff injuries

With our advanced high-energy shockwave technology, our team at Active Recovery Sports Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy Courtice can provide targeted, effective treatment to help you regain your mobility and well-being.

Why Choose Custom Orthotics at Active Recovery Courtice?

SWT stimulates your body’s natural healing process, enhancing recovery and relieving pain. This treatment option has a direct effect on local nerve endings, resulting in decreased pain sensation.

Distinguishing Low Energy from High Energy Shockwave Therapy

High Energy SWT, also known as “true” shockwaves, are short-duration high-energy pulses that create shockwaves by breaking the sound barrier. This focused approach offers several benefits, including increased cell membrane permeability, which promotes healing and reduces calcific deposits.

Our high-energy shockwave technology stimulates osteoblasts and fibroblasts, crucial cells responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. This targeted approach effectively diminishes pain through hyperstimulation anesthesia and the gate-control mechanism.

On the other hand, Low Energy Shockwaves are generated by radial pressure waves, providing a slower, less intense treatment option. While low energy SWT offers advantages, such as reduced cost, it diverges from high-energy shockwaves in terms of speed, intensity, and energy application.
