What is Shockwave?
The Right Move has invested in the latest medical technology and current evidence-informed treatment techniques in an effort to bring the best clinical results to patients. Storz Canada, the leading company providing medical equipment to health care professionals, has developed a top of the line Shockwave Device called the MP100.
Supported by clinical studies and scientific research, Shockwave Therapy combines the effect of different healing factors to bring about relief even if pain is persistent. Application has been shown to improve blood circulation and revascularization, improve metabolic activity and cell regeneration. Shock waves also intensify the analgesic effect by over stimulating the nerve fibres thus blocking an increase in pain stimuli.

Shockwave has demonstrated extreme effectiveness in the treatment of chronic tendinopathies, including Achilles tendonosis, patellar tendinopathies, tennis/golfers elbow, and rotator cuff tendinopathies. Effective results are also noted for plantar fasciitis and myofascial trigger points.
Ask your physiotherapist if shockwave therapy will benefit your condition.

“Due to my active lifestyle I have had numerous injuries ranging from minor to serious. The treatment at Right Move Physiotherapy has been the most beneficial, personalized and knowledgeable care that I have ever received. I have been receiving shockwave treatment as part of my physiotherapy care plan and have found significant relief following my sessions. I have worked with all three health care professionals and each has helped me regain the confidence and strength I needed to get back to my athletic goals!”
“I have been managing myofascial pain for a few years and have been treated by multiple physiotherapists and other health care service providers in Kingston. Ian Budge took a slightly different approach with my physiotherapy plan, which has provided me with the best results in correcting the root cause, putting me on the road to recovery and regaining the athletic confidence I had lost. I have tried several different trigger point treatments (including lidocaine), but Ian’s dry needling has been the most effective by far and I find myself actually looking forward to it! ”
