Your Calgary Choice for
Shockwave Therapy!

Evolve Chiropractic & Wellness is extremely excited to offer NEW Shockwave Therapy, a cutting-edge treatment for tendon, muscle, and bone disorders.

Shockwave Therapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that uses a stream of pulsed sound waves to break up old scar tissue and promote blood flow back to the affected area. Shockwaves are audible high-energy sound waves. The shock wave generator conducts energy to the painful body regions, where healing capacities then take place. The healing process is accelerated by activating the body’s self-healing powers. The shock waves stimulate new vessel blood formation or “neovascularization” to the damaged area, leading to blood circulation and metabolism where damaged tissue will gradually regenerate and eventually heal.

How Is Shockwave Treatment Performed?

The painful region is first localized, diagnosed by a highly trained Evolve Chiropractic practitioner, and a treatment plan is discussed with you. The Shockwave Applicator is then placed on the area of dysfunction and treatment is applied, generating shock waves. Shock waves are converted into sound energy once the kinetic energy hits the body’s immovable tissues. Each session takes between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on the disorder being treated. By undergoing an appropriate treatment schedule, most ailments, even chronic problems, can be resolved within weeks.
