Back Injury Treatments
A back injury can result from a fall, overuse, or muscle strain. Before beginning any back injury treatment, it's important to first have an accurate diagnosis by a healthcare professional. In order to know the extent of damage or injury, it is often necessary to do some imaging studies. This may include an MRI, CT scanning, or other diagnostic procedures.
Conservative treatments such as physical therapy, comfort measures such as heat and anti-inflammatory medications are usually the first back injury treatments to be initiated. It's important to keep the muscles active while not stressing them and causing more damage. This may be accomplished by doing a specific exercise and/or stretching routine established by your healthcare provider and physical therapist.
Ultrasound Therapy System
To enhance the healing process of an injured muscle, many chiropractors, physical therapists and healthcare providers use Ultrasound Therapy. Therapeutic Ultrasound is an excellent tool- it helps reduce pain and inflammation quickly and effectively when treating back injuries. The application of Ultrasound over the injured area reduces swelling, increases blood flow, decreases pain, relieves muscle and tendon tension, minimizes scar tissue, and helps you heal more quickly. You can treat yourself in the comfort and privacy of your own home with MendMeShop's Portable Therapeutic Ultrasound Kit!
The "Freezie" Cold Compression Wrap
The most basic method of treating inflammation and pain is the RICE formula (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). In fact, this simple formula is the gold standard- it is even recommended by leading hospitals and clinics, including the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic. Find out for yourself what these medical specialists already know- use our outstanding "Freezie" Cold Compression Wraps to experience the benefits of this tried and true method. Our wraps are the best combination brace and cold pack for treating many different types of injury, from a strained back to sciatica. They offer compression, support and cold therapy, all at the same time! The "Freezie" Cold Compression Wrap is the best of its kind available! For more information about the "Freezie" Wrap, please visit our "Freezie" Wrap Information page.
The Inferno Wrap - This is another innovative pain relief device available from MendMeShop. This device is similar to the Personal Therapeutic Ultrasound unit, except that it uses infrared waves instead of ultrasound waves. This device basically works like a heating pad, and can be safely used anywhere on the body. The infrared waves it emits work like ultrasound waves, by gently heating and massaging the tissues in the treated area. The body’s natural response to this is to send additional oxygen and nutrient rich blood (a process known as “homeostasis”, or the body trying to maintain equilibrium within itself). This oxygen and nutrient rich blood is essential to heal an injury and recover faster. For more information about Inferno Wraps, please visit our Inferno Wrap Information page.
Even though these products are safe, effective, non-invasive and non-addictive, remember to always consult your doctor and/or physiotherapist before using any of these fine products to make sure that they're right for you and your condition.
An Inferno Wrap Energy Device for the back is one of the most helpful tools for a wide variety of painful back-related problems. Through the use of the patented Energy Web, soft tissues are safely and gently heated- increasing oxygen and nutrient rich blood flow within the treated area. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of homeostasis in a balanced environment (basically, your body increases blood flow to the heated area in an attempt to drop the temperature). With the rapid increase in blood flow to the area (a term known as vasodilation), there is an increase in the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured cells, and toxins are flushed out (including lactic acid, commonly found in trigger points)- both of which promote healing. Our Inferno Wrap for the Back provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.
Our Cold Compression Wraps are recommended as a top therapeutic wrap by Leading Health Institutes like the Cleveland Clinic, several professional sports organizations, and countless medical professionals. That's why we sell them- they are the best money can buy! We have noticed over time that our customers are so fond of our "Freezie" Cold Compression Wraps that they are frequently coming back and ordering a second one- this way, they can have a spare frozen one in the freezer while wearing the other. "Freezie" Wraps are becoming very popular with baseball and soccer trainers, and the wraps can be conveniently stored in a cooler for quick application on the field when needed.
Ultrasound Therapy is also a helpful tool for pain treatment and prevention of back problems- having a portable Ultrasound device at home is a powerful, effective, and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms, or are recovering from a back related injury, using Ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.
If you suffer from pain after certain activities or movements, use Ultrasound Therapy when you complete the activity, and then rest. Limit the application of Ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual which comes with the unit will recommend treatment frequency depending on your injury/condition). In between Ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery time by using the Inferno Wrap. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com! If you have been given a treatment plan by your healthcare professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. Ask your healthcare professional about how you can add MendMeShop products to your treatment routine! In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.
