Chiropractic Shockwave Therapy in Coquitlam

Shockwave therapy is a highly effective and clinically proven modality and treatment option for ongoing and chronic soft tissue injuries and certain conditions, such as Plantar Fasciitis and Calcific Tendinitis.

The treatment is administered by the Fulcrum Therapy licensed chiropractors and physiotherapists in Coquitlam with extensive training on various soft tissue injuries and their healing processes.

Tissue repair involves a series of musculoskeletal steps involving collagen deposition and blood vessel formations.

The high energy pulses of the shockwave facilitate the healing process by inducing microtrauma in the tissue, bringing more blood flow to result in superior Orthopaedic outcomes. 

Shockwave Therapy Definition and Process

Shockwave Therapy, commonly referred to in the literature as ESWT (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) has been widely used as an alternative method for the treatment of plantar fasciitis because it is noninvasive, its recovery time is fast and it is convenient for daily life of patients. 

Another common term you may hear is EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology) which describes the shockwave machine that uses high energy sound waves that is applied via a hand held applicator and can penetrate as deep as 7cm past the surface of the skin. Extracorporeal means “outside of the body”. Treatments are done at the office, have minimal side effects and allow for immediate return to play after treatment is provided when approved by your practitioner.
