Radial shockwave therapy edmonton

Radial shockwave therapy is provided by our chiropractors and may be submitted under chiropractic benefits. The cost of treatment is $75 per session (one area). Shockwave is a safe and non-invasive pain relief and tissue repair treatment. The benefits can be immediate and are often long-lasting. It is widely used by chiropractors, sports medicine specialists, and even veterinarians. It’s an excellent option for anyone with an active lifestyle, including athletes and hikers. Shockwave also helps to ease tension, stiffness and chronic pain that may result from repetitive postures or activities. If you spend a lot of time working behind a computer and suffer back, shoulder, wrist or elbow pain, you may benefit from radial shockwave therapy.

What To Expect During Radial Shockwave Treatment

Our chiropractors use an advanced-technology instrument, the Storz Medical Masterplus Ultra Mp100. It is manufactured in Switzerland and stands out for its excellent performance.

The treatment takes only a few minutes. This means minimal disruption to your schedule, and you can get right back to your day after your appointment.

Your radial shockwave therapy session will follow a 3-step sequence.

  1. Site Location: The therapist will use palpation to locate the site to be treated.
  2. Gel Application: The applied gel helps to transfer the waves smoothly and more efficiently.
  3. Shockwave Application: The chiropractor will place the instrument against the area identified and initiate the therapy by pushing the start button.
