The location of your pain may not necessarily be the source of your pain. At Unpain Clinic, we first look for signs of imbalance with the kinetic chain that could be contributing to your injury. We will treat the injury AND do our best to prevent its recurrence.
Tissues can become painful in areas that are in no way related to the underlying cause of the problem. It is important to target the source of the condition as well as the symptoms. If only symptoms are treated, they will most likely return, for the very same reasons they occurred the first time. It is not unusual for a new shoulder problem to be the result of an old knee injury. Really!
Shockwave treatments at Unpain are seldom the same from patient to patient because the combination of individual bodies, behaviours and lifestyles are always unique. During the initial visit, your therapist will assess your pain while also looking for all potential causes. Treatment is provided on the first visit. In most cases, clients receive 3 treatments over 3 weeks, followed by a 6-week recovery period. Healing is still occurring during this time. If pain persists after 6 weeks, a 4th session may be required.
One of the greatest differentiators about our work is that Unpain Clinic clients truly get better. The majority don’t need to return for the same condition after their course of treatments is complete. It’s referrals from delighted clients and not ongoing treatments that make us successful!

With over 20 years of experience in the physiotherapy field, Shauna brings a wealth of knowledge to Unpain clients and is excited to begin this new chapter in her therapy career.
Shauna believes that, as a physical therapist, she must employ a multidimensional approach to healthcare, and she prides herself on a ‘think outside the box’ methodology. She believes that without locating the underlying cause of the problem, the symptom will always return. She wants to leave behind a legacy of being a hard working, selfless colleague who was always looking out for other people and her clients’ well-being.
Shauna’s interest in regeneration and rehab was sparked at a relatively young age, when she tore her ACL playing high school basketball. Although she was initially interested in pursuing a medical degree, after many hours spent alongside her local physical therapist, she realized this was a profession where she would be able to deliver good news more often than bad; leaving a lasting impact on quality of life.
She values the importance of listening to her clients to develop the best possible picture of their needs. Many times, clients are searching for that practitioner who will take the time and listen to their ‘story’. She loves this aspect of her role and has a knack for adapting to different personality styles and being an effective communicator and ‘health coach’. Shauna values honesty, respect, good work ethic and integrity and lives these values daily through her practice. She feels her greatest successes are when she plays a part in other people’s victories; whether it be coaching colleagues and assisting them in overall career growth or by assisting clients in their recovery process.
Shauna will always have a great story to tell and is even happier to listen to yours along your healing journey. She is passionate about cultivating wellness in all areas of her life, including her family life, fitness, musical skills, volunteerism and ongoing education. She plans to become ISMST certified at the earliest possibility and has goals to run a half marathon in the near future. She loves spending time with her husband, their young son and their dog, Otis, and they enjoy travelling whenever possible.
