Electrotherapy treatment is a new generation of revolutionary Pain management technologies in Physiotherapy to alleviate pain.
Reports from authentic sources reveal shocking data of approximately 85% cardiac arrest due to excessive medication. The pain management drugs act by binding to the protein receptors in the body eventually disturbing the body’s metabolism.
Different varieties of opioids, analgesics, and antipyretics can lead to accumulation, dependency, and abuse post threshold value.
As health is becoming a primary concern of the majority population it’s important to find alternative solutions to overcome chronic and acute pain. The electrotherapy industry for pain management is growing at a fast pace. Big brands in Medtech are creating technologies for making electrotherapy a viable and more preferred option for pain management.
Here we’ll let you know why electrotherapy is a better mode of pain management than others.
#1. Induces Endorphins Release
Endorphins are happy hormones, released during excitement, happiness, and a relaxed state of mind. Electrotherapy shuts the pain receptors and stimulates the release of endorphins to relax and reduce pain. These are released from the CNS and pituitary glands in the body.
#2. Reduces body pain non-invasively
Electrotherapy is highly beneficial in managing pain without entering the system. One just needs to apply the system on the surface, non-invasively to reduce the body pain. There are 5 modalities of electric currents for specific chronic and acute pain in different areas.
- TENS – Arthritis, Knee pain, back pain, neck pain, Diabetic Neuropathy
- IFC – Muscle spasm, Edema, Hematoma, Radiculopathy, Chronic ligament lesion
- High Voltage Electrical Stimulation – Adhesive bursitis, Wound healing, Cervical pain, sprain, and Epicondylitis
- Electrical muscle stimulation – Weight loss, Physical rehabilitation, atrophy, and restoring the functionality loss.
- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation – Incontinence, Muscle weakness, and Neuromuscular re-education.
- Faradic electrical stimulation- Restoring nutrient blood flow in muscles, Muscle atrophy, Pain relief in Knee syndrome
#3. Economical solution
Medication is a continuous process and requires much more investment when compared to electrotherapy treatment.
#4. Doctor recommended solution
Accumulation of pain medicines over a long period causes liver cancer and kidney problems. Doctors support the use of electrotherapy as a non-invasive approach to manage pain.
#5. Zero dependencies and non-addictive
Pain-relieving morphine, sedatives, and various other forms of pain medications are addictive. Excessive consumption, in the long run, might cause addiction, sedation, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, physical dependence, tolerance, and respiratory depression Thus, electrotherapy emerges as a suitable alternative for managing pain.
Electrotherapy devices are the future pain alleviation technologies to serve healthier healing and pain management. The choice of your treatment determines the consequences on your health. Choosing wisely, in the beginning, can save you from major complications, after all, Prevention is better than cure!
