Banff Physical Therapy is proud offer the latest Shockwave Therapy Electromagnetic technology, the Zimmer enPulsPro Radial Shockwave!
Shockwave Therapy is an effective, non-invasive therapy used to promote the healing process of soft tissue injuries.
During our initial assessment, we will do a thorough evaluation to assure that you will benefit from Shockwave Therapy and that it is a safe modality for you.
There may be some discomfort during the treatment, but most patients are able to tolerate this quite well. Additionally, the intensity of treatment can be adjusted by the therapist during the treatment. After treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as being very tolerable and it may last from a few hours to several days.
Shockwave therapy produces an acute inflammatory process in the treated regions. Your body responds by increasing the metabolic activity around the impacted area which in turn stimulates and accelerated the body’s own healing mechanisms. Therefore, do not use anti-inflammatory medication or cold therapy, as this will interfere with the body’s self-healing processes. If needed you can use Tylenol for pain control.
The amount of activity allowed after treatment will depend on the individual. Please ask your therapist for specific recommendations.
Treatments are usually once per week for 3 to 6 weeks. This is variable depending on the patient, their condition, and their response to treatment.
