Limp In, Leap Out Leg Therapy!

Evo-Blue kneeAre Time and Gravity Killing Your Legs?

Even with plenty of exercise and a healthy lifestyle, standing on your feet all day can lead to nagging aches and pains in your feet, through your knees and hips, all the way up into your lower back. Capilano believes that you can benefit from their prompt, proactive, professional care.  Whether you have pain, burning, numbness or tingling in your legs, Capilano has a number of drug free and surgery free options to help you.

Footmaxx™ Orthotics (for Foot and Ankle Pain)

For over a decade, Capilano Rehab Centre has been prescribing orthotics to help reduce foot and ankle pain. Capilano’s Custom Footmaxx Orthotics are thin and comfortable and can fit most footwear.  Our orthotics can help you with problems like:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Pain
  • Shin Splints
  • Achilles Strain
  • Flat Feet 

Radial Shockwave (for Chronic Leg Pain)

Capilano Rehab Centre has been a recognized provider of Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT) for over ten years.  We are one of the original rehabilitation medicine groups in Western Canada to offer RSWT and have successfully delivered thousands of treatments to help patients find relief from chronic heel, elbow, shoulder, knee, and hip pain.  Capilano uses a state-of-the-art Swiss Dolorcast® RSWT system and has recently added a new EVO-Blue® applicator for the effective treatment of chronic knee pain and osteoarthritis.

Magnetic Bio-Stimulation (for Diabetic Foot Pain)

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) is a common and often disabling complication of diabetes.  Neuropathic pain symptoms can fluctuate and can be described as burning, aching, numbness, tingling and/or loss of feeling.  Magnetic BioStimulation (MBS) Therapy is a viable treatment option for DPN.  Capilano’s new MBS G-Pulse is a leading-edge system that combines pulsating electromagnetic energy (of low frequency) with monochromatic infrared rays. The application is safe, allows for deep penetration, and does not have side effects.

Medical Compression Stockings (for Venous Insufficiency)

Venous insufficiency can manifest with having legs that feel tired, heavy or swollen in the evening.  And if left untreated, venous insufficiency can develop into varicose veins.  Capilano utilizes the new VenoTrain® generation of compression stockings.  They are just as attractive and comfortable to wear as fashion stockings.  They don’t just look good, they feel good too.  And with our customized Bauerfeind® Perfect Fit system, your breathable stockings feel as if they were made to measure and provide you with optimal compression throughout the day.
