BANISH BACK PAIN. BE ONE OF THE 1 IN 10.
by PainPod Australia
If you’re suffering a back problem, you may not know that you’re not entirely alone. There’s an estimated 3 million Australians suffering with you.
If you’re suffering a back problem, you’re one of the 9 in 10 of us that can expect to experience back pain at some point.
If you’re suffering a back problem, you’ll almost certainly know what back pain feels like, you might even be one of the 8 in 10 that have pain at least one day a week.
We know that adds up to a whole lot of pain.
Until now you may have thought you knew you were stuck with limited choices and limited relief. Stuck with the pain, stuck with analgesic pain-killing drugs and a life of NSAIDS, muscle relaxants, massage or physiotherapy. Here at PainPod, we want you to know that you have another choice. A choice to be pain-free. We want to share the knowledge of an effective, proven, drug-free solution that’s been shown to banish the pain of a problem back.
Ever since the ancient Egyptians discovered the shocking effects of electric fish on the body, electrotherapy has been known as an effective way to manage pain. By stimulating nerves, tissues and muscles it’s been used through history to treat all manner of ‘disturbances’ and countless dental, neurological, psychiatric and gynaecological “matters”. But it’s only recently during the last 25 years, that detailed clinical investigations and human trials have expanded understanding of our neurophysiological mechanisms and proved medically based electrotherapy devices as an effective method to treat back pain. We now know that studies have shown first generation electrical therapy devices using Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) are effective for pain relief. We know there is high-quality evidence that it helps to reduce the use of analgesic medication (1), improves general quality of life along with associated improvements in spinal function and mobility (2).
Armed with extensive knowledge, the team here at PainPod BioTechnology are leading the way with the development a whole new generation of ultra - wearable advanced medical devices incorporating proprietary TENS waveforms as part of their pain relief treatment.They combine up-to-the-minute advances in science waveform with the latest neurological understandings and advanced technology to engineering a range of devices and system accessories that will not only give you fast acting pain relief but that are designed to help assist in some cases the back problem itself.
The unique PainPod devices work to alleviate back pain in two ways ; Firstly, fast-acting BioTechnology combines bespoke frequency treatments and advanced waveforms to precisely block pain messages to the brain, on demand, helping the body to also release endorphins that reduce your perception of pain. This unique technology does naturally what painkillers aim to do chemically and without the potential side effects of analgesics.
Proprietary Physical Therapy Technology (PPT) then helps support the the body’s natural healing process by gently passing bio-pulses through the body, increasing oxygenated blood-flow and improving tissue circulation. Medically researched and expertly engineered, these treatment modalities have been shown to provide effective relief from almost all pain and are proven to work as and adjunct or possible alternative to a host of other regimes including NSAIDS, muscle relaxants, massage, physiotherapy and exercise (3).
So now you know the facts. Be one of the 1 in10 that can be free of back pain.
