Shockwave Therapy – Unleashing the Power of Sound for Your Recovery
Welcome to Granville Physiotherapy, your trusted destination for cutting-edge shockwave therapy in Edmonton. By leveraging the power of sound waves to facilitate healing, shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and highly effective treatment for a range of musculoskeletal conditions. We are dedicated to providing quality shockwave treatment to help our patients relieve pain, restore function, and recover faster.
Understanding Shockwave TherapyShockwave therapy is a revolutionary treatment method that uses high-intensity sound waves to interact with the tissues of the body. This interaction stimulates the body’s natural healing processes by increasing blood flow, accelerating cellular metabolism, and promoting the formation of new blood vessels. These factors contribute to faster tissue regeneration and repair, providing relief from pain and other symptoms.
What Conditions Can Shockwave Therapy Treat?
Shockwave therapy is effective in treating a wide range of conditions. This includes but is not limited to:
Our Approach to Shockwave Treatment
At Granville Physiotherapy, our approach to shockwave therapy is patient-focused and evidence-based.

The procedure itself is quick, typically taking about 10-15 minutes, and does not require any anesthesia.
How Shockwave Therapy Works
The process begins when the shockwave device is applied to the area of concern. The device delivers a series of high-energy impulses to the targeted tissues. These impulses are not electrical but mechanical, transferring energy from the device through the skin and into the tissues.
These sound waves have several effects on a cellular and structural level:
Complementing Traditional PhysiotherapyShockwave therapy can be a standalone treatment, but it also complements traditional physiotherapy methods effectively. Incorporating shockwave therapy into a comprehensive treatment plan can enhance outcomes and speed up recovery.
