The Best Way to Treat Pain – At the Root Cause! Right here at iCRYO Port St Lucie, FL
Let’s start with why we might be feeling pain; stress, injury, hydration levels, disease, and injuries. Pain is merely a signal much like the check engine light in our car. When that comes on, we typically do maintenance. We don’t simply turn off the light. Historically in society we have been offered a myriad of pain-relieving remedies to do just that, turn off the pain and eliminate the signal. Americans take more than 30 Billion doses of NSAIDS per year!
How we Treat Pain Today
Some of the most common pain relievers are; Aspirin causes ulcers, Advil causes leaky gut syndrome, Tylenol can cause liver disease, Opiates are highly addictive and the vast array of biological products coming to market have a whole host of other product specific side effects. What these products all have in common is that they simply mask the pain and are in no way actually addressing the root cause or helping the body to heal in any way. Masking pain means the issue persists and we actually start seeing the side effects from taking the pain killers. They are real. There are actual death rates for Tylenol and approximately 80,000 people end up in the emergency room. I could write a whole blog about the side effects on this class of drugs, Opiates are highly addictive and kill more than 50,000 people due to overdose in the USA and ruin countless more lives. In addition to leaky gut, Advil significantly lowers sex hormones in the body and causes 5-10% of all required kidney transplants each year. To say the least, it’s serious stuff and with 30 billion being swallowed each year we need to start thinking differently about what is best for our health and longevity if we do not change!
A Better Way to Treat Pain – A Non-invasive way to Eliminate Pain and Inflammation
At iCRYO Port St Lucie we have a much Better way. We offer many different tools to eliminate pain by treating the root cause, enabling the body to heal itself more quickly, and we do not cause any side effects. We have multiple different technologies that can be used and built into your lifestyle at a very reasonable price with significant benefits. We have Photobiomodulation, Whole-body Cryotherapy, Local Cryotherapy, PEMF and Infrared Sauna which will all work toward your goal of eliminating the pain but also help the body to heal itself.
Light therapy has been shown to have significant biological effects on humans. For example, light therapy is used to manage depression. Several clinical trials have shown that certain wavelengths of light can improve wound healing, decrease temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) pain, and decrease back pain. In these trials, light was directed at the site of pain. The investigators have shown green (LED) light produced antinociception (analgesia) and reversed neuropathic pain associated with several models of chronic pain. iCRYO Port St. Lucie has the most powerful Photobiomodulation bed on the market and can deliver the efficacious dose (20,000 joules) in just 12 minutes. Light induces a complex chain of physiological reactions in diseased and damaged tissues to accelerate wound healing and tissue regeneration, increase circulation, reduce acute inflammation, reduce acute and chronic pain and help restore normal cellular function. Many people have called Photobiomodulation a miracle once they discover it. The best part about Photobiomodulation is that it also heals the body. When reactive oxygen species are displaced from the mitochondria, a DNA repair response is triggered and the area is enhanced based on our intended DNA. I like to call it original factory settings. The lights combine together to penetrate at different levels in our bodies. Infrared light penetrates farthest (deeper tissues, organs, and bone), Red’s penetrate the skin (dermal layer and wound healing) and green is a more intense energy that has a lower level of penetration yet may affect surface and wound healing more positively.
Whole-body & Local Cryotherapy for Pain Relief and Muscle Healing
Cryotherapy can help with muscle pain, as well as some joint and muscle disorders, such as arthritis. It may also promote faster healing of athletic injuries. Doctors have long recommended using ice packs on injured and painful muscles. Doing so may increase blood circulation after the ice pack is removed, promoting healing and pain relief. A study published in 2000 found that cryotherapy offered temporary relief from the pain of rheumatoid arthritis. The research found that cryotherapy could reduce the damaging effects of intense exercise. People who used cryotherapy also reported less pain. Another 2017 study also supports the benefits of cryotherapy for relieving muscle pain and speeding healing. The main difference between local cryotherapy and whole-body is the ability to target a specific area and ensure the inflammation has completely been eradicated in that one spot, it is more focused. When inflammation is reduced the blood can flow to the area and deliver much needed oxygen and nutrients previously being blocked by the inflammation.
PEMF Reduces Pain and Helps Heal our Bodies
Our HUGO PEMF delivers an extremely high intensity, short duration electromagnetic pulse combined with several frequencies. We have matts that cover the body for the bottom and the top so that you get a very efficient and comprehensive session. This results in a magnetic field that penetrates completely through muscles and joints in just minutes, and consequently alleviates pain faster and has long-term benefit on the cells, bones and cardiovascular circulation. Doing PEMF on a routine basis is extremely beneficial from a health maintenance perspective as it greatly enhances circulation and circulation of our blood is what delivers oxygen and nutrients to all of our cells. Did you know 24% of our blood is pumped by the heart and the other 76% is pushed throughout the trillions of cells in our body by the electromagnetic energy in all of us. We need to keep our electromagnetic energy charged in our bodies just like we do our smartphones. PEMF helps destroy weak or diseased cells and enables the body to build healthy cells much more quickly. PEMF also triggers cellular exercise which expands and contracts our cell membranes through the session. This helps remove any trans-fat or impermeability that builds up as we age. Thus, our cells are more able to absorb the oxygen and nutrition being delivered and we will heal much more quickly. PEMF is actually FDA approved to heal bone faster! It also heals depression and the pain associated with it.
Infrared Saunas for Pain Relief
For years, doctors have recommended Infrared saunas because of proven relief from sports injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and other chronic pain conditions.
Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal.
Infrared saunas have resulted in effective pain management therapy for many different ailments. Here are just some of the conditions in which infrared sauna therapy has been successfully used for pain relief.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Those who suffer from PAD can experience severe leg pain caused by reduced blood flow and oxygen to the lower legs, which can get worse with walking. But Japanese researchers found that infrared sauna sessions of just 15 minutes a day significantly lowered pain, and patients were able to walk twice as far without pain. 4
Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis
Those who suffer from autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis often struggle with pain management that comes with hefty side effects. But with sauna therapy, pain relief can be found without negative outcomes. A study has shown that while in the sauna, all patients with these conditions felt significantly better, and at the end of the study, those with rheumatoid arthritis showed improvements in pain and fatigue while not in the sauna.
Fibromyalgia causes pain throughout the entire body, with particular areas of sensitivity. Studies have shown that not only does infrared sauna use help with natural pain relief during treatment, but even months after ending sauna treatment the pain was still significantly lower.
Physical pain is often given much more credit in our society than pain caused by emotion. But medical doctors have begun to understand the real physiological impact of psychological issues. Infrared sauna therapy works for the pain that can’t be seen, too. In the same study of chronic pain patients, researchers also found that patients had a statistically lower anger level compared to those not in the sauna group.
