Osteoarthritis is a debilitating condition which involves the degeneration of cartilage. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and it can be caused by a number of reasons including herditary factors and obesity. Due to the joint damaging involved with Osteoarthritis it can result in great amounts of pain. A fair amount of this pain is caused by one symptom of the osteoarthritis which is swelling. The pain caused by this swelling can cause the already debilitating nature of Osteoarthritis to become even worse potentially leading to more missed activities and oppurtunitiesFortunately all is not lost as King Brand Healthcare Products® has devised treatments for the pain caused by swelling. These treatments are the Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) and the ColdCure® wraps for treatment of pain and swelling.
King Brand has developed the ColdCure® line of compression wraps specifically designed for the treatment of pain and swelling of individual afflictions, including Osteoarthritis. These wraps contain several advancements in cryotherapy technology that provide the longest lasting cold therapy possible. The temperature is closely regulated so that the body tissue gets neither too cold to be damaged nor gets warm too quickly to be ineffective. The rigid gel stays in place and allows for persistent cold compression immediately over the damaged joint. ColdCure® wraps are easy to use, safe, targeted and extremely effective.
ColdCure® technology provides superior control of the swelling and pain without the negatives of drugs. The patient gets the relief they demand and they are still able to reduce pain as quickly as possible.
Pain and swelling. Without pain and swelling, patients may not know just how serious their Osteoarthritis may be. Pain and Swelling are the symptoms that drive patients to seek urgent medical help. As professional healthcare providers, we care about properly treating the Osteoarthritis but recognize that the pain isn't the true problem, its only a sign of the problem. All too often patients judge professional medical services based solely on their ability to address the pain and the swelling caused by arthritis because that's the only part that they can see and feel. As medical professionals we first want to address the underlying disease, but we also want our clients to live without pain through the healing process. Pain killers are an easy solution, but we all know they are not the best one.
Pain killers (NSAIDs/analgesics) such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and ASA are known anticoagulents - they can prevent the blood from clotting. This group of medicines interfere with normal blood function that is crucial for the optimal treatment. We know this isn't the best solution for treating the pain. Narcotics and steroids are not desirable options either, especially for our regular patients who are not under professional medical supervision 100% of the day. Even injured professional athletes who are under regular medical supervision are kept away from drugs if possible. The best possible solution for pain and swelling control caused by Osteoarthritis is clearly using ColdCure® technology.
As professional therapists and medical practitioners you know that it is in your best interest to treat your patients quickly and completely. Using regular, alternating, BFST® and ColdCure® treatments your patient will heal quickly and completely with minimal swelling and pain. This ends up in lower treatment costs, greater patient satisfaction and a reduced chance of reinjury.
Even with their superior design and performance these devices are low enough priced that they can be used by patients for in-home self treatment which also improves treatment results and patient satisfaction.
