A therapy that uses a shockwave machine to treat joint, ligament, and tendon discomfort may assist in pain relief. It’s performed with a hand-held applicator probe that makes direct contact with the skin and delivers strong shocks capable of disrupting tissue.
According to claims, shockwave therapy has an 80 percent chance of working, making it a more effective cure than surgery or medication.
It might take a few days to weeks for apparent effects to appear following shockwave therapy treatment. To be effective in treating pain, the shockwave therapy must be given three to five times at one-week intervals.
In the case of one client, shockwave therapy may give fast and long-term pain relief, as reported by a sufferer. However, because of the body’s need for time to heal properly, more serious or persistent discomfort might require longer treatment durations in order for the patient’s body to heal completely.
Shockwave therapy has been demonstrated to speed up the healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments while also increasing blood flow.
Plantar fasciitis, hamstring strains, achilles tendonitis, gluteal and patella tendinopathy, shin splints, arthritis, and other health problems can all be treated with shockwave therapy.
