Shockwave Therapy in Surrey & Langley

shockwave therapy toolAt Back & Body Wellness Centre, we are passionate about providing our patients with a suite of natural and non-invasive therapies to address their particular condition. We are pleased to now be offering shockwave therapy at our practice. Many of our patients have gotten remarkable results from this type of modality.

How Does It Work?

With shockwave therapy, a series of low-energy acoustic wave pulsations are applied to a particular injury through a patient’s skin. Completely painless, the therapy stimulates a microtrauma to the tissue that’s affected by the problem. The microtrauma then promotes a healing response by the body.

The healing response causes the formation of blood vessels and increases the delivery of nutrients to the affected area.

Given the opioid crisis that’s affecting our country, more and more people are looking for drug-free solutions to address their pain. Shockwave therapy is entirely natural and effective, according to various studies.

What are the primary benefits of shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy reduces inflammation, breaks up scar tissue and stimulates tissue healing.

Do I need to have anesthesia during my session?

No; anesthesia is not required. The therapy is painless and has limited side effects.

Does shockwave therapy have a high success rate?

According to a study of 100 patients who received shockwave therapy, a patient satisfaction rate of 90% was reached.

Is shockwave therapy recommended for every patient?

No; typically, we only recommend the therapy to those patients who we believe can benefit most from shockwave therapy. For example, we would tell our chiropractic and physiotherapy patients about the modality.

Can I add on a shockwave therapy session to my chiropractic or physiotherapy appointment?

Yes; you can ask for the therapy at the front desk when you come in for your appointment. Please allow additional time for your shockwave therapy session.

We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing so we can easily get to the areas of your body that will be addressed.
