Shockwave Recommended for Achilles Injuries

May 21, 2015

New research has pointed to shockwave therapy as an effective treatment for achilles tendonopathy and achilles enthesopathy. If you are suffering from achilles inflammation, shockwave therapy can be an effective intervention! Shockwave has previously been proven to resolve plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendonopathies. If you are looking for shockwave therapy in Calgary for achilles, foot, elbow or shoulder issues, give us a call!

Official Sports Therapy Providers for the Calgary Marathon

May 13, 2015

Encompass Sports Therapy is proud to announce that members of our team will once again be the official providers of Active Release Techniques (ART) and Graston Technique at the 2015 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon.  We will be onsite Sunday, May 31st, providing treatment to help runners and participants have a safe and healthy run and recovery.

The Calgary Marathon is the premiere event of the Calgary Marathon Society and it includes a race for every age and ability; the 50km ultra marathon, the 42.2km marathon, the 21.1km half marathon, the 10km, the 5km walk and run, and the kids marathon. There are just a few weeks left to register for both the race events as well as the Scotiabank Charity Challenge.

When you register to become part of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge you participate in the event of your choosing while raising funds for one of the official charities selected by the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon. In 2014, $1.3 million was raised for 91 charities, bringing the 5 year-total to $3.8 million.


This year, Inn From the Cold was selected as one of the official charities for the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. The team at Encompass also chose to support Inn From the Cold with our planned charitable giving in 2015.  As such, we would like to encourage all those participating in the 2015 Calgary Marathon to consider supporting Inn From the Cold as part of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge!

The team at Encompass Sports Therapy wish all the best to every participant, volunteer, and organizer of the 2015 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon!
