Shockwave therapy treatment
Shockwave therapy is now used by chiropractors at Loloyan Chiropractic in Kanata. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical solution that can treat various musculoskeletal disorders that no longer respond to traditional manual therapies. The waves penetrate up to 3-4 centimetres into the tissue to activate the inflammatory process to then stimulate and accelerate the healing process.
The conditions treated
Shockwave therapy is used in cases of long-standing injuries that have persisted for more than 6 months. The conditions that this therapy can treat are :
- Partial tears in ligaments or tendons of most joints
- Achilles tendonitis
- Patellar tendinopathy (Jumper's knee)
- Chronic tendinopathy or tendinitis
- Plantar fasciitis and Heel Spurs
- Morton's Neuroma
- Insertional pain
- Lateral or Medial Epicondylitis (tennis and golfer's elbow)
- Trochanteric bursitis
- Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
- Osteoarthritis of the knee

There are ongoing studies to determine the effects of shockwave therapy on other chronic conditions.

- Rapid reduction of pain
