Tendonitis can transform your life into a constant struggle. It’s not just an occasional pang of discomfort – it’s a persistent pain or aching sensation that renders the simplest tasks challenging. If you love physical activities like working out or lifting weights, tendonitis can seriously disrupt your routine and diminish your quality of life.
Let’s take a closer look at how the life of one man suffering from tendonitis was changed with Equiscope therapy.
Causes of Tendonitis
Tendonitis is characterized by the inflammation of a tendon, a flexible band of tissue that connects muscle to bone. Common examples of places where tendonitis occurs include your elbow, wrist, and the Achilles tendon in your foot. The condition can result from several factors, including:
- Repetitive minor impacts on the affected area
- A sudden, more serious injury
- Activities such as gardening, painting, cleaning, playing tennis or golf, skiing, and repetitive work
- Incorrect posture
- Poor conditioning before exercise or physical activity
- Aging (tendons become less flexible and more prone to injury!)
What Are the Symptoms of Tendonitis?
The primary symptoms of tendonitis include:
- mild swelling
These symptoms can severely restrict physical activity, making exercising and even performing your day-to-day tasks difficult.
Can Tendonitis Go Away?
The usual fixes include rest, ice, compression, elevation, pain relievers, or perhaps strapping to limit movement (say, in your wrist). These approaches primarily focus on managing the symptoms until the tendon recovers – rather than addressing the root cause of the problem, which is the inflammation of your tendon.
Equiscope Therapy: Faster Recovery From Tendonitis
This was the case for one client, a 37-year-old male who was diagnosed with tendonitis in his right forearm. This condition made lifting heavy objects a painful ordeal, and he was constantly plagued by a dull, aching sensation. The standard remedies – while providing some relief – didn’t completely eliminate the problem. That’s when he decided to explore a different approach and try Equiscope therapy.
During the first session of the therapy, the technician focused on the standard points along the forearm to the elbow. This protocol was done twice. The initial session resulted in more pain for the patient, but he still wanted to continue. This was when the improvement showed. After only three sessions, the man reported experiencing a substantial decrease in discomfort, and had no pain when engaging in activities such as working out or lifting heavy objects.
An Alternative to Traditional Remedies for Tendonitis
Equiscope Therapy is a unique approach for tendonitis that focuses on reducing inflammation at the cellular level, which is the root cause of the condition.
Biofeedback technology detects areas of the body where electrical resistance (impedance) is highest – which is a sign of inflammation and damage. It then delivers targeted microcurrents to these cells to restore their electrical charges to normal. This helps to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. With cellular communication working normally, your body is able to heal itself!
