What is Tendonitis?

Tendonitis refers to inflammation of a tendon, the fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. The causes vary, but tendonitis often it is what medical professionals call a repetitive use injury. Repetitive movement, such as the bending and unbending of your elbow while playing golf or tennis, irritates the tissue. Conditions like tendonitis tend to be difficult to treat effectively. Prolonged damage can quickly become a chronic problem as a result.

Symptoms of tendonitis include:

  • A dull ache that increases when you move the joint or limb
  • Tenderness around the joint
  • Mild swelling

What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy allows our downtown Calgary chiropractor to apply a series of high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy to the affected site. With shockwave therapy, the chiropractor delivers targeted energy through the skin to the injured tissue. The pulse prompts the body to respond by increasing blood circulation and metabolizing the injured tissue.

The pulses might be a little uncomfortable at first, but not painful. The energy level is low and increases in intensity to keep you comfortable. The healing response forces the body repair the damaged area.

This treatment is both FDA-approved and non-invasive. There are no incisions given or drug therapy involved. It is a holistic approach to treating an injury that can occur at any joint and be chronic where in places you bend frequently like the elbow or heel.

What to Expect From Your Tendonitis Treatment in Downtown Calgary

Your tendonitis treatment in downtown Calgary will begin with a quick examination of the injured site. The chiropractor will assess the problem and determine if shockwave therapy is the right choice. If so, the clinic will set up a treatment schedule for you. During your session, our chiropractor will apply a lubricant to your skin to reduce friction and then use the shockwave therapy wand to send the pulses to your injury. The wand may be held over a specific place or move around for larger area. The treatment takes between five to ten minutes. After you finish, you can leave the office and return to your normal activities. There is no recovery time required. Our staff may advise you to avoid sports and exercise until you feel better.
