Shockwave therapy in Abbotsford is the solution if you are looking for a fast, economical and long-lasting option to manage chronic pain. Consistent sessions improve blood flow and promote tissue healing.


What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is based on the capability of sound waves to break down gallstones or kidney stones. In this treatment, ‘shockwaves’ (a series of low-energy acoustic waves) are applied to the injured area through a gel on the skin. Once the shockwaves hit the damaged tissues, it breaks down the scars, reduces pain and boosts the natural healing process.

Shockwave therapy serves two main purposes:

  • Regenerate damaged tissues
  • Break down scar tissues

And this is how the therapy works wonders when no other treatment seems to work out for your pain.

Legend Physiotherapy is a reputed physio clinic with years of experience in providing shockwave therapy in Abbotsford Our professionals assess your chronic condition like adhesions, tendinosis or scar tissue. They then decide the number of shockwave therapy treatments you need to recover completely.

How Shockwave Therapy Works on Injuries?

Let’s see the step-by-step process of how shockwave therapy works on injuries.

  • The professional assess your pain to detect the exact damaged areas.
  • They apply a gel on the affected area and start the shockwave therapy using a handheld probe.
  • The shockwave therapy unit emits mechanical waves to induce microtrauma in the affected area.
  • Microtrauma triggers the natural healing process of that area, thereby repairing and recovering the damaged tissue.

The recovery rate depends on the severity of your pain. It may start working right away or take some time to reduce the pain. The body may lose its natural ability to heal due to severely damaged tissues. So, shockwave therapy helps the body regain this ability and heal pain-inducing conditions.

I was so impressed with Amrit Sidhu during my recent massage appointment! She was very thorough, did a great initial assessment and was able to provide some insight into the causes of my pain. The massage was excellent and she hit all the right spots with all the right pressure. Following the massage she took the time to provide some personalized exercises and stretches to help until the next time I see her. She is everything I’m looking for in an RMT and I highly recommend her!!

Edit: I had a much better experience my second time back. They went out of their way to make things right, as well as placed me with someone better suited to treat my injury. I was blown away by how much new information Sangram Singh was able to deduce about my condition on the spot, and create a treatment plan. It was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep, and the time flew by. I definitely felt my treatment was really important to him and my input mattered, and I really appreciate it. I was able to stand straighter after the appointment, and booked in for another one. I actually see a brighter future for my health now, and can't wait to see how I feel after the next appointment. Thank you to the Legend team:)Original: I was really hoping to have a better experience for my first massage, but it just wasn't at all what I was hoping. An hour before, I had my first Chiro appointment at Cheam Wellness, and in that 15 minute appointment, my muscles got extensively worked more than any point of the 45 minute one at Legend. I came in due to a back injury, but so little pressure was applied that I barely felt anything most of the appointment, it just felt too casual/surface, and not directed towards my pain that I discussed. Dave had injured his back the day before and did have to sit throughout the appointment, which I understand and am so sorry to hear, but I think it did affect the quality of the massage and was a bit disappointing. He was really chatty, which would be nice in some circumstances, but I really only felt pressure applied in the quiet lulls, which just makes me feel like his focus wasn't on my treatment, which sucks because he was really nice - but as I mentioned I came in for a back injury that I've been waiting 2 years to have benefits to get treatment for, and was hoping to feel some type of relief. I hate having to leave a bad review, but I definitely won't be going back to him sadly, as that appointment used over 1/6th of my benefit limit for the year, and I feel quite ripped off. I didn't feel comfortable asking for more pressure to be applied because he didn't ask either and speaking up for myself can be hard as an Autistic woman in a new situation, but I really wish I had. He was a really nice guy though and I wish him the best.
