Has chronic pain become a constant companion? Does that acute ache in your shoulder or lower back keep you from enjoying life to its fullest? At GP Pain & Physiotherapy Clinic, we understand the distress that pain can bring to your life. We know it affects your work, leisure, and overall quality of life.

Our expert team in Grande Prairie is ready to help you regain control of your life and bid farewell to persistent pain.

About Shockwave Therapy: Unleashing the Power of Sound Waves

Shockwave therapy uses sound waves to penetrate deep into the body tissues, promoting healing and regeneration. This non-invasive technique can stimulate blood flow, reduce inflammation, break down scar tissue, and expedite the body’s natural healing processes. Whether it’s a sports injury, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, or other chronic pain conditions, shockwave treatment could be the answer.
