Introduction to Radial Shockwave Therapy

The main focus of this workshop will be on radial shockwave therapy, a physical therapy agent approved by Health Canada that is being used worldwide in rehab and physiotherapy clinics. We will also introduce you to a new physical therapy agent: Targeted Radiofrequency Therapy (also known as TR Therapy).

Shockwave therapy is recommended by orthopedic surgeons to remove calcium deposits in tendons without the need for surgery. Targeted Radio-Frequency therapy is recommended by rehabilitation medicine specialists for intense muscle relaxation and pain relief as well as acceleration of tissue regeneration.
