The Top 8 Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Jumper’s Knee

Jun 19, 2024 | Sports Physiotherapy

As musculoskeletal professionals, Jack Nathan Rehab encounters many patients who are runners, jumpers, or just enjoy playing recreational activities such as soccer, basketball, tennis, etc. Are you an individual suffering from knee pain? Are you unable to walk, jump, or run comfortably? This may be due to patellar tendonitis.

What is Jumper’s Knee AKA patellar tendinopathy?

Patellar tendinopathy is a condition that affects many people between the ages of 15 and 35. Interestingly, people who are active have a higher chance of developing patellar tendinopathy at least once in their lifetime.

Patellar tendonitis or tendinosis, also known as “jumper’s knee,” is a condition that leads to the inflammation of a tissue band that connects your kneecap to your shinbone (tibia). Many traditional programs of care suggest taking a break to give the knee time to heal, which can be a heavy risk and a time-consuming option, especially for individuals highly engaged in athletic activity.

Shockwave Therapy for Jumper’s Knee (Patellar Tendinopathy)

Patellar tendonitis may be a common deformity, but many active individuals suffer from this issue.  Shockwave Therapy can restore tendon health and your ability to run, walk, and jump. This type of therapy treatment allows the tendon fibers to heal by breaking away unwanted scar tissue and increasing blood flow to the injured tissue. This allows for a quicker recovery and the ability to get back to activities faster.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Jumper’s Knee

The advantages of shockwave treatment include:

  1. Pain Relief: Helpful for problems such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, and tennis elbow.
  2. Accelerated Healing: Facilitates the flow of blood, boosts cellular metabolism, and speeds up the process of tissue repair.
  3. Enhanced Mobility: Alleviates pain and inflammation, hence reinstating regular mobility and functionality
  4. Collagen Production: Collagen formation is stimulated to promote the repair and maintenance of connective tissues.
  5. Calcification Breakdown: This process dissolves hardened deposits in tendons and muscles, resulting in pain reduction.
  6. Minimal Recovery Time: Enables patients to quickly resume their regular activities following treatment.
  7. Flexibility: addresses a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions.
  8. Anti-inflammatory effects: Facilitate the flow of blood, boost cellular metabolism, and speed up the process of tissue repair.
