Is There Definitive Rehab and Pain Management?
There is no definite answer to that question; at best, it depends. If the pain stems from an injured muscle, and it is rehabilitated with an EMS unit, such as an EMS 5.0 electronic muscle stimulator, then there is a pretty good chance that the muscle will definitely go back to what it was before. We have all seen athletes who come back from injury and after physical therapy, and it’s like they never went away at all. If anything, they are better than ever. However, and depending on the nature of the injury, you might recover mobility, though the muscle might never be the same again.
That leads us to the topic of chronic pain; the type of pain that never really goes away, as in arthritis for instance. Since there is no cure for arthritis, no pain management can be definitive. Notwithstanding that, devices like Intensity Twin Stim, or Intensity 10 Combo do offer the best possible relief for pain in muscles, bones, and joints, save a few exceptions. Consult your doctor to see if electrotherapy –whether TENS or EMS- is for you. If it is, your physician can prescribe one of these devices (or one of many others available at Discount Medical Supplies), so that you can turn to a cost and time-effective rehab and pain management therapy.
Like we said, many of the conditions that cause pain have no cure, or their treatment and the treatment for the pain that they produce are separate processes, like it occurs with some types of cancer. Nevertheless, measures can still be taken to stop the disorder from becoming worse, and also to lessen the impact that it may have on your daily life. Joint pain can impair you for hours on end, but a session with a TENS unit does not take on average more than 30 minutes, after which –and even during- you will experience relief.
Harsh as it may sound, some conditions are there to stay, barring a miracle. And though there really is no definitive rehab and pain management, the technology that can enable you to lead a quality life does exist. In reality, no one is beyond pain in any form or capacity; we all have to live with the prospect of facing pain, whether physically, mentally, or emotionally. The difference is that, if you have chronic pain, you already know how to deal with it.
