Conditions treated with Radial Shock-Wave Therapy

Radio Shock-wave therapy is a clinically proven method for the treatment of the musculoskeletal and dermatological conditions. Here are some examples of conditions effectively treated with RSWT:

  • Heel Spurs
  • Pelvic pain
  • Planter Facilities (chronic)
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Tendinitis/Tendinosis
  • Calcium Deposits
  • Soft Tissue Tightness
  • Achilles Tendinitis (chronic)
  • Muscle aches/pains
  • Stress Fractures
  • Tennis Elbow (chronic)
  • Golf elbow (chronic)
  • Jumpers Knee
  • Rotator Cuff
  • Much more


Shockwave therapy is clinically proven to heal musculoskeletal conditions. It works using acoustic waves which are similar to air pressure waves.

Waves are administered through contact with skin and penetrate through soft tissue. This process triggers body’s natural mechanism of self-healing by stimulating blood flow to the affected area. As a result, our body gets the ability to:

  • Break down calcification in muscles, tendons, and ligaments
  • Heal scar tissue
  • Provide pain relief and reduce inflammation
  • Increase blood circulation, stimulate metabolic reaction and speed up the healing process
  • Create anesthetic effect during the treatment
  • Treat the root cause not symptoms

In general, RSWT produces an anti-inflammatory effect, activates cellular defense, dilates blood vessels, increases blood circulation and rejuvenates bone tissue.

Radial Shockwave therapy is also unique because very few technologies can work with chronic or non-healing conditions without surgery.

It’s well tolerated, safe, effective and non-invasive method which stimulates self-healing process down to the cellular level. RSWT produces an anti-inflammatory effect and stimulates body’s natural healing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Usually, you may need 3-5 sessions with 5-10 days apart. Duration of treatments is 15-30 minutes. Treatments are well tolerated by everyone. Very seldom some minor side effects may occur redness or a bit of swelling which goes away within a couple of days.

When I arrived to the Art of Life I was really impressed by their modern physio-therapy equipment that I hadn’t seen in other clinics. Also, the clinic impressed me with its very friendly and knowledgeable staff and very warm, homelike atmosphere. To cut the long story short, my chronic pain disappeared after 12 sessions of physiotherapy

Reguel Lobo, TORONTO

I’m a volleyball player with a shoulder injury. I went to different places in America for treatment with no relief. While traveling in Toronto I went to the Art of Health Center and only had time for 1 treatment of Radial Shock Wave Therapy. Amazing, I’m back to the court in 10 days without any pain.
