Arthritic Pain Reduced With Non-Invasive Treatment Approach


'Tim uses a wheelchair and comes to see me once a week for treatment of his arthritic thumbs which play a crucial role in wheeling the wheelchair efficiently.

In treatment, I use both acupuncture and Physiopod deep oscillation. Tim has noticed his pain has reduced significantly with this dual treatment approach, alongside the strengthening exercises I set for him. Deep Oscillation therapy is painless and relaxing in application. It produces gentle vibrations that have a deep-acting effect on all tissue components to an 8 cm depth (through skin, connective tissue, subcutaneous fat, muscles, blood and lymph vessels).'

Deep oscillation therapy and acupuncture can potentially help individuals with arthritis in their thumbs, particularly for someone who uses a wheelchair.

Deep oscillation therapy uses low-frequency mechanical vibrations to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. It works by creating a gentle and deep-acting resonant vibration in the treated tissue. This treatment can help reduce pain, improve mobility, and reduce inflammation.

Acupuncture, on the other hand, is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to alleviate pain and improve overall wellness. Acupuncture is believed to stimulate the body's natural healing response and promote the flow of energy, known as "qi."

For an individual who uses a wheelchair, these therapies can be beneficial as they are non-invasive and can potentially reduce pain and improve mobility in the affected joints. It's important to note that individual responses to these therapies may vary, and consultation with a healthcare professional who is knowledgeable about these treatments is recommended.
