Shockwave Therapy at Lorne Park Integrated Health

shockwave therapy on a legShockwave is a non-invasive treatment we offer at Lorne Park Integrated Health that involves the distribution of different pressures in space through wave propagation. When the shockwave reaches the tissue, the kinetic energy is absorbed, and force is produced. The energy promotes the regeneration process of bones, tendons, and other soft tissue.

Shockwave therapy is its own treatment and helps treat lingering injuries.

Medical Effects of Shockwave

  • New blood vessel formation: waves create micro ruptures in tendon and bone which increases blood flow
  • Reversal of chronic inflammation
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts: waves break up the calcification which is a result of micro tears and trauma
  • Dispersion of pain mediator: shockwave mediates the “substance P” which is the neurotransmitter that is associated with pain
  • Release of trigger points

Shockwave treats the following conditions:

  • Trigger points
  • Myofascial release
  • Tennis elbow/ golfers elbow
  • Patellar tendinopathy “jumpers knee”
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome “Shin Splints”
