There’s nothing like warm weather to get Canadians outdoors hiking, biking, playing ball, and then back to your clinic with injuries and related setbacks.

Shockwave therapy is an alternative modality that can help active Canadians recover from warm-weather activities in less time so they can continue doing what they love.

Non-invasive and drug-free, shockwave therapy uses acoustic waves to activate the body’s natural healing process, relieve pain and promote the healing of various musculoskeletal conditions.

The Allure of Warm-Weather Outdoor Activities

For Canadians, the arrival of warm weather means embracing outdoor activities such as tennis, baseball and running. Depending on location, warm weather might signal that it’s time to get out the kayak or start swimming in a lake.

All activities have physical demands, not to mention potential risks. Hiking up a mountain or cycling along backroads can be as risky as playing frisbee or soccer, especially after a long winter spent indoors.

Getting injured after waiting months to get outdoors and active is the worst. It’s one thing to be unable to participate in activities. Add in the negative aspects of downtime, and the problem becomes physical and psychological.

Warm-weather sports and shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy is non-invasive, reduces downtime and provides faster recovery. Here are three outdoor activities that can benefit from the help of shockwave therapy.

Hiking-Related Injuries

Hiking can result in sprains, strains, and overuse injuries due to the uneven terrain and prolonged physical exertion. Shockwave therapy can expedite recovery by promoting tissue regeneration and reducing pain.

Soccer Injuries

Common soccer injuries include ligament sprains, muscle strains, and stress fractures, which are often due to sudden stops, starts and changes in direction during the game. Shockwave therapy effectively treats these injuries, potentially promoting pain relief and tissue regeneration.

Sports with Repetitive Movements

Warm-weather sports involving repetitive movements, such as running, cycling, and swimming, can lead to overuse injuries like tendinopathies and stress fractures.

Shockwave therapy can help break the cycle of repetitive strain injuries by promoting tissue healing and reducing pain.

Final Thoughts

Shockwave therapy is a standard of care that expedites recovery and is suitable for treating various warm-weather sports injuries, including those specific to hiking, soccer, and sports involving repetitive movements.
