ESWT Treatment For Knee Pain

ESWT Treatment For Knee Pain

Watch as Dr Edwin Ong, Resident Doctor, Dr Tan & Partners (DTAP clinic) talks about ESWT, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy,  as an effective treatment for knee pain.

There is a multitude of causes for knee pain. Some are relatively mild conditions that can improve simply with proper rest, while some are serious and require prompt medical treatment or surgery. Shock Wave therapy is a safe, quick and non-invasive treatment using energy from sound waves to activate the self healing properties of the body and accelerate the recovery process.

It does so in a number of ways: 

  1. Firstly, through a process known as cavitation, Shock Wave therapy stimulates the production of fibroblasts and tenocytes. These are the cells responsible for the healing of connective tissues such as tendons. The end result is tissue regeneration.
  2. Secondly, the Shock Waves stimulate microscopic circulation and therefore metabolism within the treatment area, which promotes healing and the breakdown of calcification deposits, also known as spurs.
  3. Lastly, Shock Wave therapy diminishes pain by over-stimulation of the nerves that send pain signals to the brain.

To conduct the treatment for knee pain, we place the treatment probe over the affected area and deliver the required number of shocks. The treatment for knee pain is tolerable. Most patients will need about 2 to 3 sessions each 2 weeks apart.

If you are suffering from knee pain and requires treatment for knee pain, speak to your Doctor and ask if Shock Wave therapy is right for you.
