When Should You Not Use Shockwave Therapy?

Experience has shown that people with certain health backgrounds and conditions tend to have an adverse reaction to Shockwave Therapy. The current recommendation is that Gains Wave Therapy in Leesburg should not be used unless the underlying health condition has been present for 6 months or more. Extracorporeal Gains Wave Therapy in Leesburg (ESWT) is a non-invasive treatment that involves the administration of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. It is often used to treat chronic tendinopathy, a condition characterized by localized pain and pathological changes in a tendon, which affects both athletes and non-athletes. The Food and Drug Administration has approved the use of ESWT for the treatment of plantar fasciopathy. Dr.

Finnoff points out that several high-quality randomized clinical trials have provided substantial evidence that ESWT is a safe and effective non-invasive option for treating tendinopathy throughout the musculoskeletal system. This approach meets the need of athletes whose injuries do not respond to first-line treatments, such as rest, ice, therapeutic exercise, orthopedic appliances and orthopedic appliances, but who are not yet ready to consider more invasive or surgical options. The side effects of ESWT are limited to minor bruising, swelling, pain, numbness, or tingling in the treated area, and recovery is minimal compared to surgery. Shock waves are sound waves that have specific physical characteristics, such as non-linearity, a high maximum pressure followed by a low traction amplitude, a short rise time and a short duration (10 ms). They have a single pulse, a wide frequency range (0-20 MHz) and a high pressure range (0-120 MPa).
