Introducing Shockwave to your Treatment

PhysioPlus Health Group is excited to now be offering shockwave at our downtown location!

Physiotherapists use shockwave treatment to encourage the regeneration and repair of tissues such as bones and tendons. Shockwave therapy works by utilizing short, high-intensity waves of energy.

Benefits include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Improved healing
  • Trigger-point release
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased tissue strength

Contact us to see if shockwave therapy is right for you!
