What Is Shockwave Therapy Treatment?
Shockwave therapy involves using compressed air to fire a pellet back and forth within an applicator that looks like a wand or gun. The energy created is transferred through the end of the applicator and into the tissue to promote reparative processes. Our Oakville Chiropractor uses Shockwave treatment to help treat bones, tendons and muscles. It is most commonly used to reduce pain and improve mobility. More Shockwave treatment information here.
How Does Shockwave Treatment Help?
Shockwave therapy helps to stimulate new blood vessel formation, helps to reverse chronic inflammation, stimulates collagen production, helps to break up calcified tissue (like in calcific tendonosis), disperses pain mediators (chemicals around an injury that make us feel pain) and can help to release tight muscles. Shockwave Therapy is the gold standard for Trigger Point Therapy in Oakville. Our Oakville Chiropractors use a combination of other treatments including shockwave to help heal their patients.
Shockwave therapy has been shown to accelerate the healing process by increasing blood flow to the affected area, and boosting metabolism to help repair tissue in the affected area! The treatment is a great option for chronic injuries. Most patients feel better after just one shockwave visit and are 95% improved by visits 8 to 10. Our Shockwave Therapy cost are some of the least expensive in Ontario!
How can we only charge $70 per shockwave treatment?
If you have been to another clinic for shockwave therapy, you know you might pay up to $200 per visit or have to pre-pay for 8 to 12 visits upfront.

We use the best shockwave equipment from Storz and Chattanooga and include IFC, heat, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue and possibly a chiropractic adjustment in the same visit. We can keep the price very reasonable as the shockwave treatment is just an add-on to an already modality packed visit. We lowered our IFC times and use the free minutes to add shockwave to the patient’s treatment routine. Suffering from chronic pain we have the treatment you need!
Does Shockwave Hurt?
Shockwave treatment is an aggressive treatment, and is therefore a little bit uncomfortable. It is very effective, so our patients think that the discomfort during treatment is worthwhile! We have 4 different shockwave units to choose from at our clinic. The intensity can be changed from 0.5 BAR to 5 BAR and we have numerous options of head pieces to allow for optimum comfort. We treat everything from plantar fasciitis to meniscus tears and low back pain to TMJ issues with shockwave.
