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.

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.

The physio team at Legend are extremely skillful and genuinely care about their patients. Both Jodh and Jaspreet have been extremely helpful in my post ACL/ PCL knee surgery rehab and have been key in helping me reach a 80 degree flex after 6 weeks of surgery. Their new centre is also more spacious and their admin team has made improvements in the overall office cleanliness. Will share another post after my next 12 weeks of rehab journey.
