Curatron PEMF for sports injuries
Curatron PEMF therapy is highly effective in stimulating blood supply, oxygen and nutrients in the cells, as well as increasing collagen production. It helps relieve pain and soreness after games and sports activities.
Sprains and strains
Sprains and strains are among the most common sports injuries, alongside knee, muscle, and tendon injuries. Fractures and dislocations are also frequent. These injuries can cause pain, inflammation, swelling, and stiffness.
When stretching or tearing a ligament, a sprain may occur, most commonly in the ankle or wrist. A strain, on the other hand, involves stretching or tearing a tendon. Strains are common in the thighs and lower back. Both these injuries cause pain and swelling.
Repeated stress on tendons can cause conditions such as tendonitis and bursitis. These injuries often affect professional athletes who make repetitive motions with their arms, shoulders, and legs.
Bursitis is caused by inflammation of the bursa, a sac filled with fluid which helps the movement of a tendon over bone. Repetitive moves and overuse creates swelling, pain, and discomfort.
Also known as lateral epicondylitis, a tennis elbow is caused by repetitive arm motions. Common symptoms are pain and a weak grip, and inflammation of the tendons around the elbow. Although this condition is often present in tennis players due to repeated backhand stroke, it also affects other racket sport players and even people who do not participate in sports. Repetitive everyday motions like typing or using a screwdriver can also lead to this injury.
Also known as medial epicondylitis, a golfer's elbow is caused by repetitive motions and overuse of the elbow. Different swings lead to pain and inflammation on the inside of the elbow.
Sprains and tears of the knee ligament often occur during sports. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the medial collateral ligament (MCL) are most prone to injuries. Athletes who participate in contact sports that include tackling (e.g. rugby, football, martial arts), jumping, running with sudden changes of direction (Basketball, Soccer) are at risk for an ACL injury. Direct blows and trauma on the outside of the knee may lead to MCL injuries. Some of the symptoms are pain, swelling, and instability.
Another common knee injury is a meniscus tear, caused by a direct blow or twisting of the knee. This can lead to locking and inability to move the knee fully.
A "jumper's knee" is a patellar tendon tear most common in runners and jumpers. The tendon becomes weak with repetitive landing and falls, thus more prone to tearing.
Dislocation and tears are common shoulder injuries. Trauma, falls, and contact sports can lead to a dislocated shoulder resulting in severe pain and instability. Tears to the rotator cuff are often caused by racket sports and repetitive movements and shoulder rotations.
