2. Shockwave Therapy uses powerful acoustic energy to stimulate deep tissue repair. It is applied directly to the site of injury through the client’s skin via a gel medium, creating a series of intense physical energy waves. This acoustic energy wave stimulates a healing process and breaks down dysfunctional tissue.
1. Tecar Therapy is a form of non-invasive treatment that uses radio-frequency energy to help activate cell metabolism restoring its natural balance, increasing vascularisation and the internal temperature of the targeted tissues.
Other Diseases and Syndromes Causing Knee Pain
Osgood-Schlatter disease is pain caused by repetitive stresses placed on the growth area of the upper shin bone. The tendon that holds the kneecap in place becomes inflamed and causes knee pain. It usually occurs in active children 10 to 15 years old and may recur until the child stops growing. Iliotibial Band Syndrome causes pain when a band of tissue rubs over an outer section of bone and causes inflammation. It is usually localized and the pain is felt from the knee up through the thigh. Another syndrome causing knee pain is plica syndrome. In plica, bands of joint tissue called plicae,retained from fetal development, become irritated from overuse.
