How Shockwave Therapy Heals Tendon and Ligament Injuries

As our society is becoming more industrialised, ligament and tendon injuries are becoming more common. Therefore, treatment is necessary to improve everyone’s lives, as acute and chronic pain can lead to stress and anxiety.

Shockwave therapy refers to low energy pressure waves that go through a person’s skin to ensure healing and precision. It is commonly used as a non-invasive treatment for ligament and tendon injuries, plantar fasciitis, chronic muscle pain, shin splints, and various other conditions for which no other treatment works.

When ligament or tendon injuries fail to respond to time, rest, and other therapies, many practitioners use shockwave therapy to relieve and heal the pain endured.

How Shockwave Therapy Works

Shockwave therapy involves repeatedly firing shock waves to the area, leading to micro-trauma. Micro-trauma to the cells increases the formation of blood vessels and encourages blood flow, which accelerates the healing process.

Although it is difficult to understand the exact mechanisms underway fully, researchers find various body responses to micro-trauma caused by shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy stimulates tissue inflammation, causing acceleration and improvement in the healing process’s quality and the regeneration of ligaments, bones, and tendons.

There are two forms of shock treatment currently used by medical professionals; high and low-energy shocks. They are different from one another as the type and amount of shock waves given vary.

Compared to other treatments, shockwave therapy is a non-invasive alternative to surgery with various benefits that make it an excellent pain relief option. Since it is a cost-effective treatment that accelerates healing, it does not require any drug intake for pain relief. 

After treatment, it is not unusual to encounter soreness. To prevent slowing down the effects of shockwave therapy, make sure to avoid any anti-inflammatory medication.
