To heal, bones require adequate stability and ample blood supply. Sometimes, despite receiving treatment some bones fail to heal. These are called nonunions.
The treatment of nonunions with Shockwave Therapy has gained notoriety because it effectively treats the condition with out the need for surgery.
For over 15 years, extracorporeal shock wave treatment has successfully been used, to treat non-healing fractures worldwide. Studies also have shown that shockwave therapy is as effective as surgical intervention for patients with long bone nonunions, with impressive success rates between 71% and 74% at 6 months.
Storz Medical devices, available at Shockwave Canada, not only help in treating nonunions but also have zero complications.
