Shockwave Therapy in Etobicoke

What is Shockwave Therapy?

A shockwave is an intense, but very short energy wave traveling faster than the speed of sound. The basic technology involved with extracorporeal shockwave technology has been used for decades on millions of people.

Shockwave Therapy in Etobicoke is available at Triangle Physiotherapy Etobicoke. Our physiotherapist or chiropractor can assess and treat using shockwave therapy.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwave therapy enhances blood circulation which regenerates damaged tissue. This causes the patient to heal faster. In fact, often shockwave therapy is effective in cases where the body has had difficulty healing itself. This is because the strong energy pulses emitted from the shockwave device create micro cavitation bubbles that expand and burst each time the pulses are applied to the affected area. These bubbles stimulate the cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.
