The 10 Pain Areas Of The Intensity 10
If you’re reading this you probably already know that pain can strike at anytime, but also anywhere in your body. That is the reason why the Intensity 10 unit can work on up to ten different body parts, taking a holistic approach to the relief of pain. Here is a breakdown of those ten areas and their respective sources of pain.
The Neck. The neck could be equated to a submarine’s periscope; it gives our head mobility so we can perceive the world around us and see where we’re going. Therefore, neck pain can be such an inconvenience. Sources of neck pain include whiplash (a strain muscle or soft tissue injury), a cervical herniated disc, cervical spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, and cervical adenitis. The Intensity 10 electrotherapy device is a blessing to the neck.
Lower Back. The back is one of the most common pain sites in the human body. Acute low back pain, commonly known as lumbago, is the top fifth cause of doctor visits. Lumbago is thought to be caused, among other things, by sprains, strains, and other musculoskeletal problems. Symptoms include tenderness, diffuse pain, and pain when performing certain movements. In its chronic form, lumbago can lead to sleep disturbances, as well as depression and anxiety.
Middle Back. Mid back pain is manifested between the bottom of the neck, and the top of the lumbar spine, and though its cause is unknown, it has been linked to muscular irritation, spinal facet joints, compression fracture of a vertebra, spinal disc herniation and intervertebral discs.
Shoulder. The shoulder is the spot where the clavicle, the scapula, and the humerus meet to form the shoulder joint. This joint has two types of cartilage; white cartilage and the labrum. When the former wears out, as it happens with arthritis, pain and stiffness become as much a part of the joint as the three bones that define it.
Elbow. The elbow is very susceptible to a number of injuries and diseases, such as tendonitis, fractures, dislocation, infection, arthritis, and bursitis. Using the Intensity 10 in any of these situations will be beneficial as the pain relief will be almost immediate.
Wrist. Wrist pain, also called open wrist, is a condition that impairs the entire hand, and is common in weightlifters and athletes, though not exclusively. Wrist pain is not a condition per se, but a symptom of an underlying disorder, for example carpal tunnel syndrome, Kienbock’s disease, ulnar verve entrapment, wrist fracture, and tendonitis.
Knee. Knee pain can be brought about by trauma, misalignment, degeneration, arthritis, and aging. Cartilage may also become damaged due to accidents, meniscus removal, strain, and injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, posterolateral corner, and medial knee.
Hip. The hip can be affected by such pain-inducing conditions as arthritis, fractures, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle or tendon strain, avascular necrosis, and bone cancer. Those who have used an Intensity 10 unit to treat Hip conditions have reported to be completely satisfied.
Foot. The human foot has many parts, and each of them could be a potential pain source, including bones, ligaments, muscles, nerves, toenail beds, fascia, and even the skin.
Ankle. Ankle-related injuries are categorized as sprains, strains and fractures, caused by tripping or falling, jumping and landing awkwardly, walking or running on bumpy surfaces, twisting, rotating or rolling the ankle, or by sudden impact.
