You have been having persistent foot pain for weeks. You visit your WIN Health Chiropractor to have them check it out. It’s plantar fasciitis!

The chiropractor ant WIN Health Performance Centre introduces you to shockwave therapy as a potential solution. Willing to achieve the fastest and most effective treatment, you agree to give it a try.

As you sit comfortably, the chiropractor applies the shockwave device to the affected area on your foot.

You feel pulses of energy being delivered deep into the tissues, targeting the root cause of your plantar fasciitis.

With each subsequent shockwave treatment, you notice a significant improvement in your plantar fasciitis.

Your sharp and stabbing pain gradually subsides, allowing you to walk and move with greater ease.

The inflammation begins to decrease, and the tightness in your foot starts to loosen.

You can finally participate in activities that were once out of reach, and your mobility improves.

The plantar fasciitis no longer dominates your thoughts or limits your movements!

What Is Chiropractic Shockwave?

chiropractor niagara falls

Chiropractic Shockwave Therapy uses high-speed pulsations applied to a localized site to break down scar tissue or fibrous tissue, increase blood flow and change the metabolic activity of an injured or inflamed site.

Chiropractic shockwave induces micro-trauma to restart the tissue repair process. It also accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating the metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue.

What Is Shockwave?

During your shockwave session at WIN Health Performance Centre, your WIN Health Chiropractor, will select the intensity, depth and duration of your physiotherapeutic shockwave treatment. Your WIN Health Chiropractor will decide on either a radial or focused device for your treatment based on your needs.

Depending on the type of shockwave applicator being used, you may hear a “clicking” sound during your treatment; this is the projectile being pushed vigorously against the head of applicator and emitting a series of “shockwaves” through your injured tissue. Some patients may experience slight discomfort during their treatment, depending on the area(s) treated.  This discomfort is likened to a mild aching or pulsating sensation.  Your chiropractor will communicate with you to ensure you are tolerating your treatment well.

What Conditions Can Be Helped with Shockwave?

Shockwave therapy can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, but the research shows the highest efficacy in treating calcifications and tendinopathies.  These include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendinopathies: Achilles tendinopathy, Patellar tendinopathy, Tennis elbow, Golfers elbow, etc.
  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Back Spasm and Trigger Points
  • Calcific tendinopathy
  • Bursitis
  • Shin Splints (Medial tibial stress syndrome)
  • Scar tissue

What Does Shockwave Therapy Do?

Shockwave can help improve your mobility and function. By reducing pain and inflammation, shockwave therapy can enhance mobility so you can  get back to performing daily activities with greater ease.

Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option. The pulses create a small trauma to the damaged tissue, this creates an in flux of oxygen rich blood and the healing environment becomes ideal.

The therapy conducts pulsations to your area of concern and the total treatment lasts about 15-20 minutes.

What Are The Benefits of Shockwave?

There are many benefits you can experience from a shockwave treatment.  Primarily, pain relief is the goal in your therapy.

Shockwave tackles pain by promoting healing.  It increases blood flow, tissue regeneration, and the breakdown of scar tissue.

Is Shockwave Safe?

When shockwave therapy is offered by a professionally trained health care provider it is safe.

Your WIN Health Chiropractor will take a complete history and assess any reasons why physiotherapeutic shockwave may or may not be right for you.

They will discuss what to expect and any risks you need to know about.  They will only offer chiropractic shockwave if they think it’s the best fit for you.

How Often Do I Need Shockwave?

The frequency of your visits and how often you need shockwave therapy really does come down to your injury specifics.   Most people are treated with successive weekly visits for 3-4 weeks. Your WIN Health Chiropractor will always assess your needs and progress with each visit and will share with you the treatment plan so you understand what to expect in the short term and long term.
