Say goodbye to your problems with advanced non-surgical shockwave technology
What is ShockWave Therapy?
Tired of knee pain, tendon issues, muscular dysfunction or plantar fasciitis? Our professionals at Divergent Healthcare can help.
At Divergent Healthcare, we use shockwave therapy to help relieve our valuable visitors and patients from the pain that they have to deal with on a regular basis. The technology has been derived from lithotripsy — a technique used to break stones in the liver. The treatment involves a brief high energy wave directed towards the injured tissue or region to stimulate the healing process.
Which conditions can be treated using shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy is generally used for a variety of musculoskeletal problems. Now that the technology has been modified for orthopaedic use, shockwave therapy can be used for:
-Low Back Pain
Are there any complications?
Shockwave therapy is generally safe and does not have any complications, however, there are certain individuals who should not opt for this type of treatment. Shockwave therapy should be avoided by pregnant women, cardiac patients, hypersensitive individuals, and those who suffer from seizures. Shockwave therapy should not be performed on open sores.
Best thing to do is consult with one of our experts and see if shockwave is the right fit for you.
What is the success rate for shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy has a success rate of 80% with individuals reporting relief from the symptoms of their problems or conditions. It should, however, be noted that the results of this procedure vary depending on the condition it is being used to treat, which is why you should consult the professionals at our pain relief clinic in Calgary beforehand for an accurate diagnosis.
