In Singapore, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and it can affect any joint in the body, including the knees. As a progressive disease that worsens over time, the most common symptoms include joint stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility. Especially after periods of rest like when you wake up or sit for long periods of time, you may experience an ache upon movement. Knee osteoarthritis can also be caused by an old injury or age-related changes to your joints. This can vary from mild discomfort to severe pain, eventually affecting your quality of life.
The good news is, there are ways for people with knee osteoarthritis to better manage its symptoms and work towards maintaining an active lifestyle. This includes seeking chiropractic care in the form of shockwave therapy and other treatment options with registered chiropractors in Singapore.
How Shockwave Therapy Can Help
To treat conditions like knee osteoarthritis, radial shockwave therapy uses high-energy acoustic waves to improve healing and provide pain-reducing effects. Reaching the affected joints directly, the vibrations from the waves can encourage the body’s natural healing response to kick in and help reduce inflammation.
Apart from knee osteoarthritis, shockwave therapy can be used as a treatment for pain in the knee, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and other ailments.
