After a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA), or other injury, your medical care becomes more complicated with the addition of insurance companies, and often several different medical professions.
Chinook Rehab Centre expertly manages the coordination of your paperwork, medical records, legal representation and reports with your physiotherapy.

Shockwave Therapy is used for injured tendons. The technology works on the cells in a tendon, by stopping the naturally occurring pain-generating chemicals flooding the tendon. It replaces these chemicals with naturally occurring chemicals which reduce pain and promote healing.
The latest evidence for treating injured tendons in the lower limb, overwhelmingly states that the tendon must be strengthened with specific rehabilitation exercises. When the tendon is too painful for strengthening, shockwave therapy becomes extremely valuable to the patient and therapist, as it reduces pain in the tendon to make the exercises possible.
