A torn tendon can be pretty worrying when it comes to teen injuries. This was exactly what one of our clients, a 13-year-old boy, had to deal with. Let’s dive into his story and how his recovery was kickstarted through the power of Equiscope therapy.

Torn Tendon vs. Tendonitis: What’s the Difference?

A torn tendon involves a tear in the tissue that connects muscle to bone, resulting in sudden, sharp pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the affected joint. But tendonitis is characterized by the inflammation of a tendon, often caused by repetitive stress or an acute injury. It leads to a gradual increase in pain, tenderness, and mild swelling.

  • Inflammation
  • Nerve damage
  • Muscle spasms
  • Compensating for an injury by using other body parts

The only question when you have an injury is: How do I fix the injury and remove the pain as soon as possible? Let’s look at what needs to happen…

How Does Your Body Repair Damaged Tissue?

Imagine your body as a bustling city. Your cells are the buildings, and the traffic consists of nutrients (delivering supplies to the buildings) and waste products (the refuse collection).

Suffering from an injury, such as a torn tendon, is akin to a natural disaster, which triggers the recovery mechanisms in your body to jump into action, much like emergency services do in a city. Recovery at the cellular level is like fixing the roads and clearing up debris to restore traffic flow. More specifically, in your body, this process involves:

  • inflammation (cleaning up the damaged area)
  • tissue formation (rebuilding the tendon)
  • remodeling (strengthening the tendon)

But at the same time, in our analogy, you can understand how a natural disaster disrupts the city’s traffic flow – blocking roads and delaying the emergency services needed to fix it!

Equiscope: Accelerating Recovery at the Cellular Level

This is where Equiscope therapy comes in to help speed up this process of recovery at the cellular level. It works by quickly restoring the correct flow of bioenergy, ensuring nutrients and waste products move efficiently in and out of cells. This accelerated process helps your body (our imagined city) to return to its normal state more quickly.

The Journey of Torn Tendon Recovery

Let’s take a closer look at the case we mentioned of the young client who experienced a first-grade tear in his right thumb tendon.

The Equiscope therapy protocol began with two tailored sessions involving non-invasive therapeutic tools. A 1×1 plate was used on the thumb pad, while the second smallest lymph disc was used in an up-and-down movement on both sides of the thumb along the tendon.

After the second session, the boy visited his doctor and had all bandages removed. There was no need for further protection, and he could resume his usual activities. After playing a school volleyball game without pain, he had an additional third session with the standard points protocol.

The speed of recovery was much faster than expected due to how the Electro-Equiscope was able to intelligently scan and respond to problem areas of damaged cells.
