If you’re a chiropractor and you’ve heard about shockwave therapy – you may be wondering what’s in it for you.
… well, shockwave therapy or Extracorporeal Pulse Activated Therapy (EPAT) doesn’t just help your patients heal faster but it also enables you to increase your revenue.
How? We discuss this further here.
Backed by Science
The effectiveness of shockwave therapy has been proven by double-blind, randomized control studies. Results from some studies are shared below:
- 84% improvement for plantar fasciitis
- 91% improvement for calcific tendonitis of the shoulder
- 77% improvement for tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
- 76% improvement for Achilles tendinopathy
- 80% improvement for radial and ulnar humeral epicondylitis
- 74% improvement for patellar tendonitis (jumper’s knee)/achillodynia

Treats a Wide Range of Indications
The reason why shockwave therapy has gained so much popularity is that it is effective, versatile, and non-invasive.
While shockwave therapy helps treat common conditions such as tennis elbow and hamstring pain, it goes even further and heals ailments such as non-unions and stress fractures. With shockwave therapy, you can treat a wide range of indications including:
- Plantar Fasciitis;
- Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee);
- Trigger Points;
- Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints);
- Achilles Tendinopathy;
- Calcific Tendonitis;
- And more.
The MASTERPULS® line, from Storz Medical, available at Shockwave Canada, comes with optional add-ons to treat specific conditions. SPINE-ACTOR transmitter heads, for instance, are perfect for the treatment of paravertebral muscles, including the vertebral joints of the entire spinal column in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas; dysfunctions in the entire spinal column; muscular imbalances; and pain conditions, as well as trigger points.
High Return on Investment
Providing care to patients can be stressful on the practitioner’s body. Also, this means that there is a limit to the number of patients you can treat in a day, depending on your clinical resources.
The right shockwave therapy machines can help you increase this number. The ergonomics of the machine alleviate the stress on your hands and your body, enabling you to treat more patients and work comfortably over longer durations.
Dr. Michael Hardie, at the City View Chiropractic Clinic, shares that the MASTERPULS® Ultra MP200 from Shockwave Canada has helped him treat more patients.
“We’ve already given two million shocks with the device in two months,” Dr. Hardie said. “And it’s been a great way to enhance our care to our patients.”
In addition to this, the machines, from Shockwave Canada, require low-to-no maintenance, are available on flexible financing options, and have fewer operational limitations.
