The Tendonworks® unit is a registered medical device and is completely safe for unsupervised use.
However tendon problems come in many different forms and as such required different treatments
and management. What can present as pain, stiffness and loss of function to the individual can
have many different causes,
which is why we always recomend that someone who is suffering with
a tendon problem obtains a proper diagnosis and as such an appropriate treatment.
Each unit contains a minimum of fifty 30 minute treatments totalling over 25 hours
A typical treatment regime is as follows:
Days 1 - 5, 3 x thirty minute treatments per day
Days 8 - 12, 2 x thirty minute treatments per day
Days 15 - 19 1 x thirty minute treatments per day
This totals 15 hours of treatment over a three week period.
Following the treatment regime we suggest the unit is used once a day for five days (2.5 hours of treatment) every three months. This will provide a further year of cover. When this is completed the unit will have completed its cycle of programmes.
The Tendonworks® unit is designed to accelerate the rate at which new type 1 collagen (the main tissue in tendons) is produced which will facilitate a quicker rate of repair. To work at its most efficient a properly tailored exercise regime should be implemented along side the Tendonworks treatment protocol.
The Tendonworks® unit can be used for several different conditions affecting tendon and soft tissue, such as strains, tears, chronic (long-term) discomfort and dysfunction.
