Shockwave Therapy in Richmond BC

At Actin Physiotherapy in Richmond, BC we are committed to using scientifically researched, evidence-based techniques to restore your natural mobility.





What is Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and non surgical technique that involves the application of strong energy pulses to the skin. Acoustic pressure waves are generated by the Shockwave machine. These energy waves radiate from the point of application on the skin. The Shockwave machine at Actin Physiotherapy is handmade in Switzerland before being shipped to us in Canada.

Treat Injuries

Shockwave therapy has been known to be highly effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, and tennis elbow.

Improve Mobility

Shockwave therapy also helps to improve mobility by breaking up muscle knots and reducing tension in muscles.


Conditions We Treat

Achilles Tendinopathy

This is an injury to the achilles tendon which connects the two calf muscles, gastrocnemius and soleus, to the heel. It can cause pain, tenderness and stiffness in the heel area that can worsen with physical activity. 


This is a condition where bursa become inflamed and painful leading to reduced movement and functioning of the affected area. 

Shin Splints

This condition is also known as medial tibial stress syndrome and is characterized by pain in the anterior portion of the leg below the knee (shin).

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that occurs in the heel of the foot and is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that connects our toes to our heel. 

Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)

Tennis elbow is characterized by pain and decreased function in the elbow that results in reduced grip strength. 

Patellar Tendinosis (Jumper's Knee)

This is a condition associated with pain in the patellar tendon, located just inferior to the knee cap.

What Our Patients Say

"I really appreciated all of the hard work, patience, and effort everyone here put towards my recovery. They prepare individually-suited treatment plans and are very accommodating to your suggestions and concerns. Also, they make themselves available if you need help or have any questions. I highly recommend Actin for physiotherapy and active rehab, they are truly amazing. Thank you so much!"

"Takami at Actin Physio is an awesome therapist! I had mangled a shoulder and his coaching provided smart targeted guidance through my recovery journey that was indispensable... In the midst a painful, disappointing, life altering injury, I did not initially look forward to my appointments. However the safe welcoming efficiency Actin provides, from Sarah anchoring the front, through to the interesting side conversations and good humour that always came with the customized sessions, I miss them! Could not recommend more highly.
