WHEN WE HELP: CHRONIC PAIN
Orthopaedic chronic pain is often a result of an underlying health condition or a long-term repercussion of injury. Most suffering with chronic pain never know how they are going to feel when they wake up in the morning and every day can be a struggle. If you rely heavily on medication to make it through everyday, then cryotherapy could be a good option for you.
A NEW WAY TO COPE WITH CHRONIC PAIN
Do you suffer from pain as a result of a car accident? Is your Arthritis getting the better of you? Perhaps you have found yourself on a lengthy waiting list for joint replacement?
Chronic pain can be debilitating at times and your treatment options may appear somewhat limited. Of course, there are many factors to consider when managing chronic pain, such as making sure you are staying active, regularly seeing a physiotherapist and keeping your body weight under check. However, if you rely heavily on medication everyday, why not try cryotherapy?
PHYSIOLAB: YOUR VERY OWN SYMPTOM-MANAGEMENT TOOL
The Physiolab S1 unit can act as your very own symptom management tool for coping with pain at home, particularly if your chronic pain is a result of an inflamed joint or tendon. Cryotherapy is known to lower inflammation and reduces sensitivity of the pain receptors around joints. Pain is greatly reduced following treatment due to the analgesic effect that the cold therapy provides. Often this reduction in pain and inflammation can lead to improved joint mobility.
