Shockwave Therapy in Midtown Toronto

At Urban Health Group, we’ve invested in state-of-the-art shockwave therapy to restart the body’s natural healing process for old injuries. This noninvasive therapy targets affected soft tissues and leads to faster healing, decreased discomfort, and an improved range of motion.

Reminding Your Body to Heal Itself

Shockwave therapy was first developed by a doctor in Toronto, who discovered that it could break kidney stones into smaller pieces that were easier to pass without pain.

Our Physiotherapists and Chiropodist use this research-backed technique to break up injured tissue. This sends a signal to the brain that the body has suffered a new trauma and needs to start healing. The resulting inflammatory response promotes the growth of new blood vessels and helps the affected area heal.

Long-Term Healing

During a therapy session, the practitioner uses a handheld machine to transmit a wave of energy to affected tissues. This creates a feeling of consistent tapping. Patients usually describe this experience as uncomfortable, but not painful. This short-term discomfort results in long-term relief. Breaking up damaged tissue allows your body to regenerate strong, healthy structures again.
