Arthritis care week 2019.
This week is Arthritis care week. Arthritis affects more than 10 million people in the UK alone. It is a condition where inflammation of the joints causes pain, stiffness and reduced movement in some cases. There are also different types of Arthritis such as Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Pain relief for those who suffer from this condition includes long-term medications, surgery, splints, and physiotherapy. Some people turn to TENS machines as well although TENS will only provide temporary pain relief. Some people will use a TENS machine for hours to feel pain-free but that pain relief will only last for a maximum of a few hours before needing to use the machine again. PEMF therapy, however, is extremely popular with our customers who suffer from Arthritis. This is due to the fact PEMF therapy works to heal and repair cells and tissues, therefore in time reducing inflammation and the pain that comes with it. It provides long-term relief.
Arthritis can affect any of the joints in our bodies however the most common are hands, knees, spine, and hips. Our full body mats can cover all of these areas with PEMF therapy. Speak to a member of our team about what mat would best suit your needs, you can inquire here.
I found Verusarthritis.org as a useful website for those who suffer from this condition and they also list magnet therapy as a safe alternative therapy.
