Relief of Pain
Most people have sprained or strained a joint at some time in their life whether it be an ankle, knee, low back, shoulder, etc. Most everyone has iced that injury and taken a pill to relieve pain and swelling. Some of the newer research suggests that throwing a pack of frozen peas on a sprained ankle for example, actually slows down the healing process, a case of treating the symptoms and not the underlying problem. Research also suggests that increasing blood supply to a sprain or strain aides in healing and relief of pain. When it comes to a sprain or strain, there is a better solution that even most doctors are unaware of. We use a combination of compression, distraction and resistance to relieve swelling, increase blood flow and range of movement back into the joint of a sprain or strain. Our methods are time tested and speed up recovery over the conventional "RICE" method.
