Calgary, Canada – 24 May 2021: Research conducted by the Canadian Chiropractic Association found that nearly 4 million Canadian citizens suffer from activity limitation due to back pain. It is estimated that millions more suffer from a number of issues due to chronic back pain.
Back pain can be debilitating, and the expense and time-consumption of invasive surgery leads people to look for alternative methods to resolve back issues. Some common treatments include chiropractic procedures, massage therapy, and medication.
Advancements in medical research have introduced newer techniques to help people with back problems, with one of the most popular one being Shockwave therapy.
Shockwave therapy involves directing energy beams towards specific pain points in the back. The beam enhances the regenerative process of cells and thereby facilitates healing of tendons and soft tissues. The method has reportedly helped relieve up to 80% of pain symptoms in back pain sufferers.
Divergent Innovative Health Care is one of the first clinics to introduce Shockwave therapy in the city of Calgary. The clinic is well known for its use of state-of-the-art technology in pain treatment therapies.
Speaking about their efforts to introduce advanced procedures to the people of the city, a representative of Divergent Innovative Health Care said, "Given how widespread nature of chronic back pain issues, we're always looking for innovative ways to help address these issues. Shockwave therapy is the latest step in that direction. With this procedure, we can better help those who are unwilling to go through invasive procedures like surgery.
One of the most impressive parts of shockwave therapy is its ability to target specific parts of a person's body, thus protecting the rest of the organs from unintended side-effects".
With Shockwave Therapy added to Divergent Innovative Health Care’s range of healthcare services, the clinic has established itself as a great option for Calgary citizens suffering from back pain.
