A type of therapy that involves the use of a shockwave device, such as TENS units or Neuromuscular Stimulators, may help with joint, ligament, and tendon pain. It is carried out with a hand-held applicator probe that comes into direct contact with the skin and delivers strong shocks capable of breaking down tissue.
According to reports, shockwave therapy has an 80% chance of working, making it a more effective treatment than surgery or medication.
It might take a few days to weeks for visible results to appear following shockwave therapy treatment. In order for the shockwave therapy to be effective in treating pain, it must be given three to five times at approximately one-week intervals.
It is possible to observe how shockwave therapy may provide rapid and long-term alleviation from pain. However, in order for the body to heal correctly, more severe or persistent discomfort might necessitate a longer therapy duration.
In addition to the benefits listed above, micro-needling is said to increase blood flow and promote muscle, bone, tendon, and ligament recovery.
Plantar fasciitis, hamstring strains, achilles tendonitis, gluteal and patella tendinopathy, shin splints, arthritis, and other health conditions may all be treated with shockwave therapy’s multiplicity of applications.
