Failed Back Surgery
Failed back surgery is a condition in which patients have had unsuccessful back or spine surgery to correct an abnormality, such as decompressing a nerve root or stabilizing a painful joint. When a patient, along with his or her surgeon, determines that surgery is the best option for pain control, there is always a risk that the procedure will not totally alleviate the pain. In fact, some conditions actually become worse over time as a result of the surgery.
Some of the pain resulting from failed back surgery may be related to implant failure, inadequate fusion, nerve damage during surgery, scar tissue build-up, and more. Even in the best of scenarios, secondary problems can cause back pain following back surgery. Some measures can improve your chances of successful surgical results, including following the strict rehabilitation regimen to rebuild and strengthen the affected muscles.
Our Ultrasound Therapy System is an excellent addition to any back rehabilitation routine after successful or failed back surgery. After going through the trauma of surgery, it is necessary to retrain the muscles to respond appropriately to movement, especially if the movement has been limited due to disc fusion. Ultrasound Therapy is often included to speed healing in the affected muscles.
If you had back surgery years ago and you're dealing with the results of built up scar tissue pain, our Therapeutic Ultrasound System may be your best option for pain relief. It's the same type of therapy most chiropractors and physical therapists use on their patients every day!
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.
