What Problems Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy Can Tackle?

What Problems Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy Can Tackle?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a highly effective and innovative treatment option in a variety of fields, from urology to cosmetology as well as orthopedics. This is a non-invasive method that employs high-energy shockwaves to bring about the healing of the affected tissues. It has been found to provide good results for recalcitrant orthopaedic problems like frozen shoulder to certain chronic degenerative or tendon conditions such as Achilles tendinitis (injury of the Achilles' tendon due to overuse) and plantar fasciitis in the heel pain.

How does it work?

The procedure is basically an outpatient or day care job. It involves an application of a non-invasive probe to the affected tissue. This is followed by the external generation of shockwaves focused on the target area. The shockwaves cause a force to be created that brings about healing. Although it's still not clear as to why this kind of therapy works, the dominant understanding is that shockwaves render an improvement in the flow of blood so as to promote the body to fix and heal itself.

Depending on individual cases, high or low energy waves may be employed. While pain may occur during the transmission of high energy waves and would require short general anaesthesia, low-energy ESWT is carried out without anesthesia.

What problems can this form of therapy effectively tackle?

ESWT can be used to treat a number of musculoskeletal disorders. From plantar fasciitis (heel pain), tennis elbow, shoulder rotator cuff, degenerated tendons (Achilles' tendon) to hip and knee pain, the therapy has been found to reduce pain as well as accelerate healing in individuals.

Complications are very rare, with this therapy. Individuals who suffer from hypersensitivity or poor sensation in the affected area are usually not recommended this procedure. Even individuals with heart conditions, seizures and open sores need to consult a doctor before going forward with the therapy.

The therapy has also been found to be very effective in bone healing as well as treatment of bone necrosis (a disease that occurs due to permanent or temporary loss of blood flow to the bones). Additionally in place of surgery, ESWT may also be a valuable option for non-healing fractures. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

Pain & swelling of joints & muscles rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Physiotherapy usually helps any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. It may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Tip to prevent back pain during gardening

Tip to prevent back pain during gardening

YARD WORK

MOWING THE LAWN:

This can be a great strengthener. Maintain good alignment and relaxed breathing. Avoid slumping or overarching the low back keeps your pelvis level. If the vibration of the mower seems to aggravate your symptoms, try thick gloves or use foam tape to insulate the handles.

GARDENING LOW TO THE GROUND:

(PLANTING, WEEDING, EDGING):

Maintain good squatting methods. Also, try kneeling, Half Kneeling, and sitting on your heels
There is a no. of helpful garden products that assist with these positions, providing knee cushioning and something to push up off when going down. Be sure to stand, stretch up and backward, walk after being in these bent-over positions.

SWEEPING/RAKING:

These activities are great overall strengtheners. Use an exaggerated, wide base stance and keep your, head, shoulder, pelvis, balanced on the top of each other and facing in the same direction. Reach and pull with your legs and arms, not your back. Rake and sweep in different directions by pivoting your back leg and moving your whole body single, relaxed unit. After sweeping and raking, do neck strengthening and decompression and neck release exercises.

REACHING UP TO PAINT, PRUNE, AND CLEAN WINDOWS:

This can be good upper back, arm, and abdominal strengthener. Use ladder or step stool to keep from aching your low back and letting your abdomen and buttocks; stick out; make sure you keep your chest up, your pelvis level, and your head and neck in a neutral position. If you are uncomfortable after doing these activities try doing knee to chest neck strengthening and decompression, and/or release exercises.

DIGGING HOLES/ SHOVELING SNOW:
CAUTION:

These activities carry a high-risk aggravation and/re-injury of most neck and low back problems; they are not good form of exercises. If you have to perform these activities, avoid rounding out your spine and attempting to lift with your spine in a rounded position. Put your legs in a front to back step position and shift your weight through your legs. Keep your chest up and your buttocks sticking out that is squat instead of bend. Keep your arms flexed and lift by straightening your legs. When you start to get tired or sore stop! Stretch up and backward, walk and wait a while before continuing. Specially designed, bent-handled snow shovels make the job a little easier.

WASHING THE CAR:

This is a good strengthener for arms and legs if you attempt good bending methods. Especially helpful are oil derrick methods, squatting, and taking weight through both hands. Keep the low back relatively straight and relaxed, and work those legs by squatting and shifting.
