Advanced Technology for Ankle & Foot Treatment

When foot and ankle pain slows you down, our Calgary experts are here to help. We leverage their deep understanding and cutting-edge technology to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, getting you back to the activities you love.

Radial Shockwave

Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy uses high-energy pulses to stimulate blood flow and potentially create micro-tears in the tissue, triggering the body’s healing response. This can improve tendon repair and reduce inflammation around the ankle.

Focused Shockwave

Focused Shockwave Therapy

Focused shockwave therapy targets ankle and foot pain by delivering high-energy sound waves to the injured area. These waves stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting blood flow and regeneration of tendon and muscle tissues. This can result in reduced inflammation, pain relief, and improved mobility in your ankle.  Divergent Health Care is the only clinic in Alberta to offer Focused shockwave.  This is a very effective tool in resolving chronic joint and soft tissue injuries.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

Using manual therapy techniques like massage and mobilization, Physiotherapy improves joint mobility and reduces muscle stiffness. Physiotherapists also prescribe targeted exercises to strengthen supporting muscles and improve balance, promoting long-term pain relief and preventing future injuries.

Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment

Laser therapy can be a drug-free option for foot and ankle pain. It uses concentrated light beams to target injured tissues. The non-invasive laser energy promotes tissue healing and improves blood circulation leading to reduced inflammation and pain signals. With minimal side effects and potentially rapid relief, laser therapy offers a promising option for individuals seeking effective pain management for foot and ankle issues.

TECAR Radio-frequency

TECAR Radio-frequency Therapy

TECAR Radiofrequency therapy uses radio waves to stimulate pain relief and improve blood flow, accelerating healing and tissue repair. TECAR can reduce inflammation around the ankle joint, leading to better mobility and less pain..

Medical Management

Medical Management

Pain relievers and anti-inflammatories can alleviate discomfort and swelling. Corticosteroid injections are another option for localized pain relief and inflammation reduction in specific regions. Our qualified medical team can evaluate and tailor a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Strengthening & Rehab

Strengthening & Rehab

Fitness routines can involve strengthening muscles to support joints and stretching for better movement. This reduces strain, inflammation, and tightness that contribute to foot and ankle pain. Our physical therapists use manual therapy techniques to improve mobility and address imbalances that might be causing the discomfort. This combined approach helps restore proper function, reduce pain, and prevent future issues.

ARX Omni Rehab Training

ARX Omni Rehab Training

ARX Omni offers safe and controlled movements with motorized resistance. Our qualified trainers can design a program specifically targeting the muscles around your ankle to promote healing and strength. The machine’s versatility allows for exercises at various angles, thereby improving flexibility and range of motion.

ARX Alpha Strength Training

ARX Alpha Strength Training

ARX Alpha provides highly controlled and adjustable resistance. This enhances muscle strength and stability around the ankle, promoting better support and reducing the risk of further injury. The technology allows for consistent monitoring and adjustments, ensuring optimal load and minimizing strain on the injured area.

Soft Tissue Treatment

Soft Tissue Treatment

Soft tissue treatment offers a hands-on approach to tackling foot and ankle pain. Therapists use techniques like RAPID, Active Release Technique and manual therapy to improve blood flow and reduce muscle tension and inflammation. This can alleviate pain, improve flexibility, and restore proper joint movement. By addressing soft tissues issues around the foot and ankle, therapists can help promote healing and prevent future pain.

Injectable Pain Therapy

Injectable Pain Therapy

Injectable pain therapy targets specific areas in the ankle and foot. Medications are injected near irritated nerves or tissues to reduce inflammation and pain signals. By targeting the source of pain directly, injectable pain therapy provides rapid relief, allowing you to engage in physical therapy and rehabilitation more effectively.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology

Kinesiologists analyze your movement to pinpoint weaknesses, then design exercises to strengthen those muscles and improve ankle stability. They may also use taping or other techniques to manage pain and support your ankle. You may learn exercises to keep your ankles healthy and prevent future pain.

Custom Orthotics

Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics act like personalized shoe inserts that address your unique foot structure. By correcting imbalances and providing targeted support, they can offload pressure on painful areas. Orthotics help improve alignment throughout your feet and ankles, reducing pain caused by flat feet, high arches, and overpronation. Additionally, orthotics can improve shock absorption and comfort, leading to pain-free movement.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Custom Orthotics

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Your blood platelets are extracted, concentrated with growth factors, and re-introduced into the injured area. These platelets trigger the body’s natural repair process, promoting tissue regeneration and reducing inflammation. This targeted approach can help chronic injuries heal faster and potentially avoid surgery.
