Knead Wellness offers comprehensive and effective shockwave therapies in Toronto for patients suffering from pain or medical disorders. Shockwave therapy is administered by trained physiotherapists and chiropractors and is used in the treatment of repetitive strain disorders, soft tissue injuries, and tendinopathies.

Also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, the treatment is non-invasive and reduces pain through the application of bursts of high-energy pulses to the damaged tissue. It is most commonly used in the treatment of:

  • Plantar Fasciitis – repetitive strain on the heel muscles
  • Achilles Tendinopathy – pain or swelling in the heel or calf muscles
  • Tennis Elbow – Inflammation or micro-tearing of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow.
  • Knee Injuries – Injuries resulting from age, sports, or strain.

The application of shockwave therapy reaches the pain and inflammation at the cellular level, triggering the body’s healing response, reducing the need for surgery and quickly improving movement.
