Shockwave Therapy in Mississauga

shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy, also known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), is a medical treatment that uses acoustic waves to stimulate healing and improve various musculoskeletal conditions. The term “shockwave” might be a bit misleading, as it doesn’t refer to electric shocks but rather to high-energy sound waves.

Our physiotherapist or chiropractors in Mississauga can assess your condition and determine if Shockwave Therapy is the best treatment for you

Can I combine shockwave therapy with my massage therapy appointment?

Yes, you may  have your massage therapy appointment on the same day as your shockwave therapy appointment. In fact, they may even complement each other to address  musculoskeletal concerns you may have. Your physiotherapist will guide you and give the necessary recommendation based on your specific condition for any exceptions.

How do I know if my specific injury would benefit from shockwave therapy?

The initial session will include a thorough assessment of your injury including the severity and nature of it. This will help your physiotherapist create a personalized treatment plan for you and determine if shockwave therapy is suitable for your concerns.
