What is more comforting – heat or ice? Bet you said ‘heat’! Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands. Heat is comfortable and comforting to many Largo back pain
sufferers. Cold is effective therapy and suggested in
early treatment phases, but heat plays a role
in healing. When paired - heat and
electrical stimulation - pain cannot help but subside.
Heat and electrical stimulation calm and alleviate pain.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc advises that Largo back pain and
neck pain patients use heat, ice and electrical stimulation as proper
for pain relief.
BENEFIT OF HEAT FOR PAIN RELIEF
Heat reduces the perception of pain for many.
Heat and cold top the listing of things
that low back pain patients believe lessened their pain
most followed by medication, rest, exercise, talking with a
health professional, stretching, not doing irritating activities,
and psychological changes. (1) Doctors seek ways to elicit
“offset analgesia,” a disproportionally large decrease
in pain as a result of a small decrease
in stimulation intensity. Heat is one well-known and
documented manner to do this. Electrical stimulation is another. Perceived
or actual, the pain reduction is good for a back pain
sufferer. (2) If something reduces pain for a Largo
back pain patient, Hollstrom & Associates Inc will consider its use.
BENEFIT OF HEAT AND ELECTRICAL STIMULATION FOR BACK PAIN
Heat feels good. Electrical stimulation feels good. Back
pain and neck pain patients seek feeling “good” when they are
in pain. For nonspecific low back pain sufferers, it is
a significant cause of disability, larger than any other health
condition globally. Doctors and researchers are constantly
looking for a better way manage
it. One group of researchers hypothesized that electrical
muscle stimulation and heat would produce better pain relief and improve
patients’ subjective view of pain. And their experimental trial showed
that they were right! They found
a statistically significant reduction in pain after 18 treatments. The relief was
even noted at a 12 week follow up.
Patients’ mood in addition to muscle strength and endurance also
improved. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc guides Largo
back pain and neck pain sufferers to pain relief with all sorts of
modalities. Whatever it takes! The heat and stimulation combination improve
each other’s benefit.
