How Kneease Works

Kneease treatment for knee pain

With the development of modern medicine, doctors and physicians have perfected many treatments to reduce and eliminate pain. One development, first researched in the 1970's and then published in leading medical journals in 1984 [ref] was the use of shockwave therapy to treat joint pain.

The Kneease device generates high-frequency vibration to pass shockwaves through the skin to the tendon. It is known that pain is transmitted as impulses in the large sensory fibres of the body and by applying a certain frequency to the area of pain, it interacts with the pain impulse transmissions, causing disruption. The shockwave is effectively ‘scrambling’ the sensory impulses to the extent that they cannot be interpreted as pain signals by the brain.

Several studies have investigated the use of this sort of therapy to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain in various parts of the body. The published study ‘Pain Alleviation by Vibratory Stimulation’, by Lundburg, Nordemar and Ottoson from Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, shows that shockwave therapy is an effective treatment for both chronic and acute pain. It also shows that it is more effective in relieving pain than TENS.
