Characteristics of tarsal and ankle pain and swelling: This condition mostly includes severe pain that limits full use and mobility of the affected extremity. Most commonly, only one tarsus is affected, but sometimes both tarsi are involved simultaneously. The pain has a stinging or stabbing nature. This is the most common pain in athletes with overstressed dorsal foot. Other causes may include diabetic neuropathy, ischaemic disease of the lower extremities, tendonitis, fallen arches, inappropriate footwear, and so on.
Using magnetic therapy in tarsal and ankle pain and swelling
Targeted treatment is used according to the cause, but any treatment should be aimed at reducing burden and pain.
Low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy is used due to its analgesic, vasodilatory, anti-swelling and regeneration effects.
Application of magnetic therapy in tarsal and ankle pain and swelling
Initially, we reduce pain using low frequencies at 2-6 Hz and during the recovery period, we stimulate the healing with higher frequencies at 65-79 Hz. For pain of an ischaemic nature, we prefer the frequency range 36-44 Hz.
