Foot Pain Edmonton, Plantar FasciitisGet Shockwave Physiotherapy in Edmonton

Our physical therapy Radial Shockwave program was featured in the November/December 2012 issue of REPS fitness magazine.

In their REPS report, REPS magazine highlighted 5 cutting-edge pain reduction therapies, and one of those was Radial Shockwave.  REPS stated that while “massage and physical therapy are proven techniques to trail what ails your muscles…why not walk on the cutting edge?”  They went on to report that “shockwaves can be effective in treating…plantar fasciitis and tendonitis.”

We know it’s true! Capilano Rehab Centre physiotherapy clinic in Edmonton has been a recognized provider of Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT) for over ten years.

    Can I take a shockwave therapy in minimal heel spur case? I want to fix that heel spur as soon as possible.

    I have tennis elbow, I have heard that your treatment works well for that injury. I have also heard that it is expensive. What is the cost of treatments for that injury?
