Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions That Our Team Has Taken The Time To Answer For You.
How are you able to offer shockwave therapy for only $60 per treatment when others are charging over $200 to $300 per appointment?

Since we were one of the first NW Calgary chiropractor clinics to offer this procedure, the price per treatment was normally set by the manufacturer. However, those fees are only a suggested guideline. Due to the large volume of patients that we see in our clinic, we would rather help more people than make a few extra bucks.

How long does shockwave therapy treatment take and how many sessions do I have before I see any benefits?

A specific treatment can take anywhere from five to 15 minutes, depending on the location and severity of a patient’s condition. Positive benefits are often seen following the first treatment. The assessment would provide a more patient-specific estimate of the number of treatments required to gain the best results.

Is Active Release Therapy (ART) painful?

Generally, ART is not painful. However, comfort levels vary with each individual. At times ART can be described as mildly uncomfortable, but the therapeutic benefits easily outweigh any tenderness felt during treatment.

Do you offer combined treatments?

Yes, we often combine treatments for greater effect. We can combine any treatment such as chiropractic, shockwave, and active release, all at a discounted price.

Will my extended health insurance cover Active Release Therapy (ART)?

The patient portion can be fully covered by extended insurance available through some policies. We recommend contacting your extended insurance company to confirm the details of your policy.

Please note that we do not bill secondary insurance companies on your behalf, but we would be happy to assist you with your individual insurance forms.
