ESWT in Markham Clinic - I'm pain free

Posted by Tim M on 9/26/00 at 10:52 (029177)

I just wanted to let everyone know about my fantastic experience at the ESWT Pain Clinic in Markham.

While in my late teens I was fortunate enough to play extremely high caliber hockey, among other sports. My career was short lived due to multiple shoulder separations, as well as fractures to the right clavicle. I never properly tended to these injuries, and have lived these past 12 years with a permanently separated shoulder. Doing so has allowed calcium to build in between the joint causing a great deal of pain during and after sports, and general daily activities.

I have had my share of specialists, and MRIs, yet never been able to take the time to have surgery performed. The pain I have endured has simply become an uncomfortable way of life, until now.

I was recently given the opportunity to undergo Shock Wave Therapy at the Markham clinic. The results have been UNBELIEVABLE. The pain is gone, at times my shoulder is tired as I am now moving it, and using it in ways that I thought I never would again. Since being treated I have played in a baseball tournament, as well as golf PAIN FREE!

The treatment was uncomfortable at times, yet I could not ask for a better therapist than Heidi. Her ability to explain what was happening and wonderful personality made my visits a pleasure.

I am presently undergoing low energy photon therapy treatment to speed up the healing process and am very excited at the results thus far.

I must thank the Markham clinic - they have great equipment and a great team!!

Hi Tricia,

I am the therapist Tim mentioned in his letter - Heidi. Yes, we can treat all sorts of injuries with ESWT. Right now we specialize in:
- shoulder tendinitis
- Lateral Epicondylitis(Tennis elbow)
- achilles tendinitis
- plantar fasciitis (heel spur)
- bursitis of the hip
- patellar tendinitis (Jumper's knee)

We are very different from the majority of clinics because we use a low-energy system with in-line ultrasound. In-line ultrasound, in my opinion, is essential for optimal results.

We are located in Markham Ontario Canada which is about 40 minutes from the airport. If you have any questions or would like more information about ESWT, feel free to contact me at eswt.markham@bayshore.ca

What exactly are you suffering with that ESWT might help with???

Let me know
Heidi
