Pain relief and pain management can be a sensitive subject in this day and age. With the rampant over-prescribing of narcotic pain relievers leading to a nationwide opiate epidemic, many healthcare professionals and researchers alike are seeking alternative means of pain relief; especially when it comes to post-operative pain relief. Indiba in conjunction with their partners at Luna America, have proudly brought Indiba’s Activ Cell Therapy system to the forefront, as a method of non-prescription pain relief. For many patients, undergoing any surgical procedure, small or large, can be the beginning of a tough road in terms of pain relief. For most, the first day out of the hospital can be immensely difficult, with every movement causing some form of pain and discomfort. This is the point at which doctors in recent times have been known to prescribe and overprescribe pain medication. The most common of which are oxycontin, or its generic form oxycodone, and Vicodin, (generic: hydrocodone). The issue with post-operative pain relief with narcotic drugs lies in its addiction factors. These prescription pain relievers are highly addictive, and when used constantly for a matter of weeks or even days, they can cause the patient to become extremely ill, with withdrawal symptoms. This essentially turns them into addicts, and when their doctors end their prescription, without helping to taper them off, many will turn to the use of illicit street drugs, and further jeopardize their health and safety.
For a number of orthopedic surgical procedures, the recovery time can be extremely long and difficult. Most patients will have to undergo weeks or even months of rehabilitation, while trying to deal with the post-surgical pain. Luna America feels, the Indiba’s Activ Cell Therapy system provides patients with a formidable alternative to prescription pain relief, and in many cases, can provide a much higher level of pain relief while actually aiding in the recovery effort. Narcotic pain relievers can often have adverse effects on the patient’s ability to heal from injury, and surgery. Opiates are known to affect the immune system, the body’s metabolism, as well as impede cellular function by disrupting respiration and protein synthesis. This prevents the patient from healing at the rate they would naturally. Luna America contends, the Indiba Activ Cell Therapy system acts not only as a pain reliever, but as a total, cellular restoration protocol. The Indiba Activ Cell Therapy system works using RF (radiofrequency) energy, and heat energy, to penetrate below the skin’s surface, deep into the cellular matrix of the treatment area. Once it reaches this area, the Activ Cell Therapy system proliferates all of the cell’s functions at once, each allowing the next to become fortified that much more. From metabolism, to cellular respiration, or protein synthesis, the Indiba Activ Cell Therapy system, promotes cellular restoration at a far more rapid pace than any other treatment.
Following any surgical procedure, the patient will be in need of rest, and pain relief. The rest portion will allow the body to heal, any tissue to be connected, and any incisions to heal as well. The pain relief protocols for most following surgery are simply used in order to allow them to perform their normal daily activities without any discomfort or malaise. Luna America believes, the Indiba Activ Cell Therapy device will help mask the pain similar to prescription medication, all the while, helping to heal and promote faster cellular restoration. This allows patients a far shorter “recovery stage” and shortens the healing period in which pain will be at its peak.
Research indicates that the Indiba Activ Cell Therapy system helped to both lessen the pain a patient felt, following treatment for a fractured femur, while also lessening the time frame a patient would feel pain. While every recovery is different, and patients are all different, the Activ Cell Therapy system has shown to expedite the process in individuals no matter of sex, age, prior health or any other significant factors that may be prudent. This could have a drastic effect on how we in the medical community treat pain and provide pain management, helping to limit the prescribing of narcotic pain relievers finally providing the world with a similar if not improved option for their pain.
