Our kinesiologists are also certified to perform shockwave therapy and tape for certain injuries. Shockwave is a non-invasive treatment that involves creating low energy waves that are directly applied to the site of injury.
Shockwave is used in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, primary those involving connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons. Shockwave therapy is most suited for people who have chronic tendinopathies which haven’t responded to other treatment; these include: tennis elbow, Achilles, rotator cuff, plantar fasciitis etc. Shockwave treatment only takes 4 minutes to treat, but can take 3 months to work.
Taping can also be used in conjunction with other therapy. The taping can be used to mitigate pain and swelling, correct movement patterns, and improve posture. It can also be used for extra support to muscles and joints that need it. The tape is stretchy which allows you to move
normally and even shower with it.
Taping can be done before or after a session and should be kept on for at least 3 days.
