Cornwall Regional Physiotherapy is please to announce the addition of a brand-new shockwave therapy unit.
Shockwave therapy has been around for many years, however previously the cost of the equipment was very expensive necessitating extremely high fees per treatment. These fees could range from several hundred dollars to over $1000 per treatment. With today’s technology advancement newer equipment can be purchased at a reasonable price which allows us to significantly reduce the cost of this treatment making it a more affordable option to the majority of our patients. Our price is only $60.00 PER SESSION.
Although Shockwave treatment does have its limitations it has proven itself to be significantly beneficial in the following areas and augments many of the traditional modalities available to a Physiotherapist.
• Plantar Fasciitis/heel pain/heel spur
• Achilles Tendinopathy/Achilodynia
•Scar Tissue Treatment
• Lateral epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
• Patellar tendonitis (Jumpers Knee)
• Calcific tendonitis/supraspinatus tendon/RotatorCuff
.Tibial edge syndrome (Shin splint)
Shockwave therapy typically requires three to six treatments, 5-10 days apart for optimal results. Additional improvement can be noted within 2 weeks and up to 3 months after treatment.
The treatments are provided by or under the supervision of a Registered Physiotherapist and are covered under “physiotherapy” with most extended health plans. After a standard Physiotherapy consultation at $50.00 all treatment options will be discussed with you. If the decision is to proceed with Shockwave Therapy the initial treatment cost in addition to the consultation if done on the same day is $30.00 the cost of this service is $60.00 per treatment there after.
Call your extended health insurance provider for more information to see if you are covered for shockwave therapy treatment, when provided by a physiotherapist as part of your therapy treatment .

Cornwall Regional Physiotherapy provides many different modalities in an individualized program tailored to your specific medical condition after a thorough initial assessment and evaluation of pertinent medical history.
Cornwall Regional Physiotherapy has been providing high quality Laser Treatments for several years to many of our physiotherapy patients where conditions warrant and with no extra charge, unlike many clinics in Ontario that bill the patient a separate charge.
Laser is safe and effective. It penetrates the skin without a heating effect and directs bio-stimulative light energy to the body cells which are converted to chemical energy to promote healing and reduce pain.
At Cornwall Regional Physiotherapy a variety of patient conditions are treated including back and neck pain, with and without nerve root impingement, sprain and strain injuries, tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, pain and loss of motion and function related to degenerative joint changes, soft tissue injuries related to falls and motor vehicle accidents, fractures post immobilization, Total knee and hip replacements, post surgical rotator cuff repairs, post mastectomy, ACL reconstructions, arthroscopic knee surgeries, back surgeries, stroke patients, patients requiring postural drainage and education in home exercise programs.
The clinic has provided treatment to patients who require the use of a wheelchair, walkers, crutches and canes. We have worked with Handi-Transit in the city to arrange for transportation needs. This clinic receives referrals from family physicians, surrounding medical clinics and emergency department physicians. Over 50% of our patients refer themselves to this clinic because they have been satisfied with previous care, been advised by a friend or through word of mouth and/or the fee schedule and provision of online billing. A Physician’s referral is not required.
This clinic offers the Acute Low Back Program of Care and the Shoulder Program of Care, both of which are funded by WSIB. For patients who have been injured in Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) we direct bill to the appropriate insurance funding. We also have DVA and RCMP billing privileges. For some of our private paying patients with extended health coverage billing can also be done on line.
