Shockwave therapy in the treatment of joint calcifications

Joint calcifications can cause discomfort and limited mobility in areas such as the shoulder, hip, knee, elbow, and even the heel. Physiatrists and physiotherapists recommend Shockwave therapy as an effective solution to the problem of joint calcification.

What are joint calcifications?

Calcifications, also known as calcifications, represent the accumulation of calcium in the soft tissues of the joints. This process can cause pain, especially during movement, and interfere with daily activities.

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

Shockwave therapy is an innovative method of treating calcifications. It uses high-intensity shock waves aimed at the calcifications. These waves help break up calcium crystals, facilitating their resorption and reducing inflammation.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Pain Reduction: Shockwave therapy significantly reduces pain associated with joint calcifications.
Increased Mobility: This treatment improves joint mobility, allowing a return to daily activities.
Fast Results: Most patients notice improvement after just a few sessions.
When to consult a physiatrist?

If you are experiencing pain and discomfort due to joint calcifications, you should consult a licensed physiatrist. They will assess your condition and recommend appropriate treatment, including shockwave therapy.

Shockwave therapy is an effective and non-invasive option for the treatment of joint calcifications, applicable to various parts of the body, including the shoulder, hip, knee, elbow and heels. Using shock waves, this therapy can improve joint health and get you back to an active life. Do not wait until the pain becomes unbearable – consult a physiatrist and learn more about the benefits of shockwave therapy.

Hip pain:

Hip pain occurs very often in the elderly as a result of changes in the hip joint itself and damage to the soft tissues around the joint.

According to the cause, place and type of pain, pain in the hip can be divided into the following diseases:

  • Osteoarthritis (joint degeneration)
  • Bursitis (inflammation of the bursa within the joint)
  • Sarcoilitis (sarcoid joint pain)
  • Iliotibial pain syndrome (pain on the outside of the upper leg)
  • Trochanteric pain syndrome (outer hip pain)

Chronic conditions that cause pain in the hip can be treated with a combination of injections, medication, as well as through the use of physical therapy, a manual non-invasive method also shows good effects, and later kinesitherapy is applied.

Knee pain:

Knee pain can be divided into knee pain during movement and knee pain during rest. Pain in the knee that occurs during rest requires immediate intervention and a trip to the doctor. Such pain is most often caused by swelling or a sprained knee.

Recreational and professional athletes, as well as the elderly, often experience knee pain that can be immediate as a result of a sprained or dislocated knee.

If the pains are temporary, it is important to rest, to put cold compresses on the place of pain. If the patient’s pain or swelling does not disappear after 2-3 days, if there is any, he should immediately contact his doctor or physiotherapist, in order to receive the necessary therapy.

Chronic knee diseases that require treatment:

  • Gonarthrosis
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Prepatellar bursitis
  • Knee arthritis

Treatment of the above-mentioned diseases requires that the patient consult a doctor or physiotherapist, who will recommend a possible examination by an orthopedist, rheumatologist or other specialist, as well as additional diagnostics in the form of CT, MR or ultrasound imaging. Therapy can be physical (electrotherapy, laser, magnet, tecar), acupuncture, pain mesotherapy, medication, injection for the knee, later application of kinesitherapy.

Pain and stiffness in the joints is very complex and has many causes and types. In young people, joint pain occurs as a result of some trauma, sports injury or everyday injury from a fall, while in the elderly, joint pain is more common, caused by chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and gout.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition of pain and stiffness in the joints, fingers and hands, accompanied by a feeling of discomfort, especially on cold days. Rheumatoid arthritis is aggravated in some patients, making it impossible for patients to even hold objects in their hands, which limits them in their daily functioning. Gout manifests itself through redness and swelling exclusively in the feet, resulting from the accumulation of uric acid crystals.

If you feel pain in your joints, regardless of whether it was caused by an injury or a chronic condition, consult a doctor.
