Treatment for Tendonitis
Effective treatment for tendonitis
The M.A.D. micro-therapy unit provides quick relief from symptoms such as pain and inflammation whilst healing your tendonitis up to four times faster than standard treatments.
The M.A.D micro-therapy unit is the world's smallest and most effective PEMF therapy device, providing sustained and focused healing treatments for the most rapid recovery from tendonitis possible.
Treating your tendonitis couldn't be easier; you simply position the tiny unit over the painful area using the ultra-thin, self-adhesive hypoallergenic pads and then simply switch it on and leave it to heal your tendonitis.
What is tendonitis?
Tendonitis is the medical term for inflammation of a tendon. A tendon is the strong connective tissue that attaches your muscles to your bones to create movement. Tendonitis is often caused by repetitive or sudden over use in sports, work or leisure activities. Tendonitis can easily become a chronic condition associated with painful restricted movement and disability.
Standard treatment advice is complete immobilisation of damaged tendons which is often difficult to achieve and can lead to rehabilitation complications when movement resumes. Many people experience long term pain and disability from a simple injury and often resort to steroid injections with limited results.
Why is tendonitis so difficult to heal?
Healing times for tissues and structures in the body vary greatly. Your skin is normally quick to heal as it has an excellent blood supply and your skin will quickly repair itself if left to do so with the simple application of a band aid. However, tendons are normally very slow to heal because, these extremely strong and tough connective tissues that attach muscles to bone, have relatively small blood supplies which dramatically increases their healing time.
How can I heal my tendonitis?
The MAD-1 PEMF therapy unit, also known as the I-Heal and marketed by HoMedics, is used worldwide by sports professionals and individuals to relieve pain and greatly reduce the healing time of tendonitis and other common injuries such as sprains and strains.
The MAD-1 PEMF therapy unit provides sustained PEMF therapy that rapidly reduces inflammation and promotes healing whilst helping to prevent further damage to the tendon and surrounding tissues. A recent NASA study found that this type of sustained low frequency, PEMF reduced cell regeneration times by 75%.
What makes the MAD-1 so unique and so effective at treating tendonitis?
The M.A.D produces a very specific and focused form of PEMF wave (pulsed electromagnetic wave) which penetrates deep into the body; the wave is completely harmless and produces no sensations. This wave type (shape, frequency and power) produces two critically important benefits for the area of the body that is being treated.
Firstly, this type of PEMF wave produces localized vasodilatation (increase in size of the small blood capillaries), which allows a substantial increase in blood flow to the treated area. This is particularly important when treating tendonitis as tendons have very poor blood supplies, compared to muscles, and this poor blood supply makes inflammation and pain persistent and difficult to relieve and heal.
Secondly, when this type of PEMF wave passes through any conductive material, such as the tissue cells of the human body, it generates a tiny electrical 'charge' (voltage difference) between the cells that are being treated. This minute ‘charge’ causes an increase in cellular metabolism as the vital tissue salts in our body all carry an electrical charge. The PEMF wave facilitates an increase in the movement of these vital tissue salts, and oxygen, in and between the cells, which has the effect of increasing the performance of the cells. If you place an M.A.D. unit over a large bruise and treat it continuously for 72 hours, you will see an area of approximately two inches around the unit completely heals up.
