Rehabilitation Aids

Pain often prevents us from getting enough exercise, and lack of exercise can worsen the pain by leading to stiffness, weakness, and deconditioning. Movement is necessary to keep the discs, muscles, ligaments, and joints healthy. All individuals, regardless of age, share the desire to be as functional, independent and pain free as possible. A comprehensive rehabilitation program together with proper rehabilitation aids. is essential to achieve that goal.

Treating Pain

Bandages: Bandages are used for a variety of purposes, to give support to or restrain a limb, to maintain splints and dressings in position. A muscle strain, or pulled muscle, occurs when your muscle is overstretched or torn. This can be minor, such as soreness after an intense workout, or so severe that it needs surgical repair. When muscle strain occurs, people often report a popping or snapping sensation. This is the feeling of the muscle tissue being stretched until it snaps. This is often a very painful experience. Strains most commonly occur in the lower back, neck, shoulder, and the hamstring muscle, which is located in the back of the thigh. Properly treating muscle strain requires the right supplies and a comfortable place to rest. You will need compression bandage, pillows and ice bags to completely treat a muscle strain.

Support/massage Pillows: Neck or support pillows are not only an excellent way of promoting comfort, but can also provide relief. One of the most common complaints of many individuals is neck pain. Whether it is caused by a sleeping position or lack of support, this kind of pain can often be alleviated by utilizing a neck pillow. There is a variety to choose from, be it travel pillows to lumbar support pillows. On the other hand massage pillows get better as, just place them under those tired feet. The tingling massage will perk up your exhausted tired feet or use the massage pillow at work in your office chair to revive those stressed muscles in your back shoulders, legs or feet. Tuck away in your desk drawer. Start relaxing those tight muscles with the gentle pulsating action.

Bed Sore Mattresses: Pressure relief mattresses or bed sore mattresses help individuals prevent the formation of pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores or decubitus ulcers.  When patients are bed confined, the lack of mobility and movement inhibits circulation.  Constant contact between the body and the mattress creates pressure spots that pinch off the tiny blood vessels, cutting off oxygen and nutrient delivery to the skin and underlying tissues.
