Now Offering Shockwave Therapy in Halifax!

Struggling with chronic injuries and/or pain? Have you tried multiple treatment options with little to no success? Are you battling through pain with exercise and daily activities? Shockwave Therapy might be the solution for you!

Shockwave therapy (SWT) is a therapeutic modality used in physical therapy and sports medicine for the treatment of common musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Acoustic waves generated by the shockwave are driven into chronically injured tissues to trigger biological effects that lead to faster, long-term healing and tissue regeneration.

“I have tried several different treatments for a lingering hamstring injury that began during my marathon training. After just one shockwave treatment I knew I was on the right track to recovery. Five treatments later, I am pain free and back to competitive running.”

Diagnosis. Treatment. Education.

The three critical elements that form the foundation of our therapeutic approach are to first diagnose the exact problem, implement an evidence-informed treatment plan based on that diagnosis, and equip you with the knowledge to prevent the problem from recurring in the future.
