In 2014, over 6 million Canadians were 65 or older – 15.6% of the population.
By 2030, an estimated 9.5 million Canadians – 23% of the population – will become seniors.
As a result, more people will require convenient, accessible healthcare treatments for their chronic conditions and injuries.
In fact, anyone suffering from pain and mobility issues might find it hard to visit a health clinic for treatment, and prolonged delays can cause conditions to worsen, making recovering harder.
That’s where shockwave therapy comes in.
Shockwave therapy can help patients with a variety of common human conditions such as:
- Achilles tendonitis
- Plantar fasciitis
- Strained and pulled muscles or tendons
- Chronic Pain
- Patellar tendonitis
- Back pain
It can also provide treatment for athlete-specific injuries such as:
- Jumper’s knee
- Strained hamstrings
- Tennis elbow
- Shin splints
Providing in-home shockwave therapy makes treatment more accessible to patients and can help them recover faster than many other treatment methods.
It gives healthcare practitioners more options to treat injuries and chronic conditions without being invasive and in the comfort of their homes, allowing people to feel more comfortable throughout the treatment sessions.
