Shockwave Therapy can be utilized by practitioners whose professional regulatory bodies authorize its use. We strongly recommend that these practitioners receive training from our institute to ensure the highest standards of care. Please note the Medical Shockwave Institute cannot determine eligibility, we are simply the course provider.
Eligible professionals generally include Medical Doctors, Registered Physiotherapists, Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine, Osteopaths, Registered Massage Therapists, Kinesiologists, or individuals with other Health Care Provider (HCP) designations. However, it is important you contact your provincial or state licensing body as rules may vary across different jurisdictions.
Additionally, Licensed Aestheticians, ideally those certified by the Medical Shockwave Institute, are qualified to employ shockwave therapy for aesthetic applications such as skin treatments, cellulite reduction, and body contouring. It is important to note that these aesthetic treatments are not covered as health expenses.
