How Does Shockwave Treatment Work?

The procedure is administered by one of our highly skilled physiotherapists that will use specialized equipment designed for this effective treatment. It does not produce electric shocks but instead delivers a rapid series of strong energy pulses or high-energy shock waves to the targeted tissue.

The results it can produce are a reduction in pain, tissue regeneration, stimulation of blood vessel growth, initiating the healing process, and restoring a wide range of the body’s normal functions. An increase in blood flow to the affected area may help to accelerate healing. It is also beneficial for breaking down scar tissue and reducing muscle spasms, which can be the cause of your pain.

Our Priorities Here at Expert Physio:


To reduce or eliminate your pain and discomfort.


To speed up the healing process and ensure proper healing.


To educate you as to how you can be proactive in your recovery.


To restore your quality of life to the fullest potential.

The Process Overview

Before a shockwave treatment session or any other treatment is started, you will first complete a detailed intake where we can determine your past and present health. Then we will do a full assessment to determine which treatments are most suitable for your condition. It is at this time whether shockwave therapy is decided upon. A full treatment plan will be developed and discussed with you.

Why Choose Our Advanced Shockwave Therapy

This is an excellent treatment when the condition warrants it. It is also one that has been decided upon and provided for by one or more of our qualified and experienced physiotherapists. We have twelve of these professionals here that fit those criteria. You can feel confident in knowing that if one of these specialists has recommended this treatment, then it is the right one for you. You can also be assured that the treatment you will receive is being done properly. Your progress is constantly monitored to be sure that the treatment is delivering results. If it is not, then other treatments will be used.

You need to know that your discomfort is going to be addressed and that you are receiving the very best in treatment and care. Expert Physio has an impeccable reputation for delivering the very best in both of these areas. We are pleased to be able to provide our services to the many patients that have been referred to us by over three hundred doctors in the lower mainland area.

We believe that no patient should have to wait weeks for treatments that can bring them pain relief and a speedy recovery. To accommodate our patients, we have two clinics that are centrally located along with extended hours for convenience.

We do not believe that one treatment fits all. Every patient is an individual and is treated that way. We may have two patients come to us with the same injury where shockwave treatment is advised for one and not the other. Our comprehensive treatment plan is based on what our patients need, not on what services we want to promote.

You do not need to suffer needlessly or accept the poor quality of life that you may be experiencing now. Give us a call today and take your first step toward your recovery.

What Can Sessions of Shockwave Therapy Cost?


The fees vary from one patient to another. Many variations may exist that determine the cost. However, the one thing that every patient has in common is that they find our pricing to be reasonable and fair. This may also be a service that is covered by your extended health insurance.
