Complex Pain

Complex Pain tends to develop over a period of time and has many factors that play a contributing role. As with any pain the body tends to compensate for an issue. For example; lower back pain tends to mean that hips, knees and ankles modify posture to help with pain while standing. Shoulders, neck and upper back modify position when sitting. This can be due to lots of triggers like repetitive physical stress, sitting poorly for extended periods of time, lifting or moving objects. Complex Pain is also linked to fibromyalgia and related conditions.

I met Michaela who was having different pain levels in shoulders, back, hips and calves at different points of the day. The pain varied in intensity which is normal in chronic pain issues and moved around the body which is also normal in complex pain cases. Michaela worked in a garden centre with a very physical and varied job. Easy problems related to lifting and the type of tasks been carried out, wish it was that easy!

Looking for pain triggers  proved difficult as tasks were so varied and were at different times of the day, on each day. The only consistent pain increase related to task was Micheala's lower back and unloading bedding plants. Using InterX I was able to scan for pain points, and hot spots, areas of high nerve pain activity. This allowed for an objective map of the pain in Michaela's body. Then using the InterX device I was able to treat all of the pain areas to reduce the pain and inflammation over a course of 4 weeks. In between treatments I worked on some specific posture exercises and modified how Michalela worked and moved to protect her back.

Accelerated Recovery from Knee Replacement Surgery

I first met Julie 2 weeks post knee replacement surgery. Julie had opted for my home based accelerated recovery programme over 4 weeks. Julie was very able and keen to get back to full time work and her normal activities. Initial session is looking at base line and starting point for pain inflammation and mobility. Julie was able to complete the physio directed exercise and had a good degree of home independence.

The main focus of knee replacement Physio in the first six weeks is to protect the surgery not to help the patient recover. The key elements are bending past 90 degrees and past 110 degrees is desirable. Coupled with this is a focus on getting the knee straight to support general movement. Most patients focus on building up the front of the leg but the calf muscle is always key to support and mobility.

Julie could bend her knee well with 90 degrees and was close to straight, so the initial focus was movement with crutches and building up mobility and strength for everyday activities. Stairs are always a challenge and focus for first week and training along with Range of Movements and power building.

The second week is walking and working with one crutch and standing and bending on one leg for balance and confidence.  Mobility movement increases swelling and InterX helps reduce the impact along with reducing pain from surgery. Third week is walking without crutches in the house and outside learning to walk differently. Final week of the four week programme extends independence and strength and power to do activities along with jumping. This stage Julie smashed and exceeded targets by working extremely hard and had to be reigned in as was working too hard with not enough rest.

Julies personal goals were to be able do everything before osteoarthritis with a focus on extended walking and gym fitness and training. Julie had several additional sessions to help with swelling a pain from working so hard in recovery. Julie is now walking extensive distances and training regularly and back to full time work. 

Recovery takes time and InterX speeds this process up to normal recovery targets extended goals take longer and the patient commitment is extensive to achieve the goals 



My Hip replacement Journey Week 2

Week 2

7 days post surgery is significant as general things are becoming easier and some challenges you have overcome. You have a general system of the day but I knew I needed to push.

I had only done short walks outside mainly due to the weather and wanted to get out and do more. I had increased my exercises in the morning to 5 sets of 8 which for some was challenging. I ended up walking outside for about a 1000 metres with a continuous movement see video below.

I was over the moon at been able to complete such a large distance with crutches and it gave me a fantastic sense of achievement. Health and Safety warning post walk, I had high levels of muscle fatigue and slept for 3 hours the longest I had slept in one go since the surgery and my enforced sleeping on back position. I totally forgot how tiring walking can be early post surgery, note to self remember rest.

Day 8

Suffered from working too hard the day before and swelling was not just in my hip but was moving down my leg.

 Due to how the hip replacement is done depends on how much bruising you have, I had the manipulation type see left

Sitting was hard today and kept having cramp in my calf from yesterdays exploits.

Day 9

Interesting day as my wife was at work while my daughter was at school. This means lots of preparation and anticipation. You still get frustrated and while using a flask is ok its nicer to drink from a cup in the lounge. It also highlights little things when you are on your own, more trips because you forget everything.

Exercises went well today really pushed myself and went for the same walk as before so really pleased.

Day 10

Today is not normal as I have to do a check list for our trip to Ireland using the ferry. This was pre booked in the summer prior to knowing I had an operation. The amount of items we needed were ridiculous like toilet seat perching stool etc and planning the car as I was sitting in the back as not driving.

My wife gets everything loaded just and we set off for the night ferry, 3 hours driving to Hollyhead with two stops is very uncomfortable. The ferry was ok they were extremely helpful and I could stand and walk around a bit. The 3 hour drive in Ireland was not funny and my backside was painful!

Day 11, 12, 13

Recover from travelling and sleep loads catching up from the journey. The environment is great as we are at my wife's parents house for Christmas and they live in a bungalow so no stairs yippee!

Work hard on the exercises and practice walking a few steps without crutches which is exhilarating and frightening at the same time, feel real progress. I am doing exercises twice a day and have increased the number along with an hour and half of interX treatment its paying off.

My Hip Replacement Journey Week 1

You Live every minute of the first day of surgery and recovery and day 2 is also a roller coaster and depending on your surgery you can go home which also presents a whole load of new challenges

Day 2

Always an early start in hospital and today will be a frenzy of activity. First I have a physiotherapy assessment and exercise session at 8am. I do very well, so and hour later I am doing physiotherapy  again in order to pass tests of stairs and walking, which I do. I need to pass these to be able to go home. Its then off to  Xray, organise transport, collect the biggest bag of medication to be able to leave and I am home by 2pm on Tuesday 11 December,  29 hours after first entering the waiting room.

The reality now sets in and you have to get used to your home environment and that is hard initially. The first week at home, my wife was off work to support me and that makes a huge difference as you have limited mobility and simple things are difficult with crutches like making a drink and carrying things.

I have only one daughter and she struggled with lack of attention and seeing my vulnerability, something not seen before and I didn't manage that as well as I could have.

Stairs are a major issue for people who have had hip or knee surgery, as getting up and down is difficult, tiring and a risk due to falling. You only ever practice stairs once in hospital and they are not steep, they are a slip resistant surface, wide with a hand rail on both sides. At home my stairs are steep narrow and only one hand rail. This along with the fact of a toilet upstairs and you do too many trips up and down which is draining.

I had loads of visitors on my return home which was great but extremely tiring, I would suggest people spread visitors out as otherwise you have all or nothing which becomes a problem later in recovery.

I struggled in the evening as I had sat more today, had the travel home and the stress of the hospital morning and getting sorted out at home. Sleep is hard initially as for the first weeks you have to sleep on your back which I don't do and also it helps if are elevated with lots of pillows or cushions. Hospital beds do have some great features you miss like the grab handle above the bed and adaptability.

Day 3

Getting up and initially moving was fine and felt great and positive. The treadmill of life starts with breakfast and the school run  which you cannot really help with and also its difficult to help yourself moving and carrying things are hard.

I stress to clients to do the mobility exercises I set in the morning as its easier to make more of a habit and you do them more often. I went through the sheet I had been given from the hospital and added an additional five exercises. I went through the circuit 3 times doing 8 repetitions of each.

Stairs a lot today as your body gets rid of the drugs it has had and the swelling starts on your hip and leg from the trauma of the surgery. At home you tend to sit more watch TV and chat in the lounge. This is great as it is resting but highlights two problems; firstly for hip operations you are sitting on a very swollen hip and back side and for knee operations your knee is usually bent and swelling. Both these situations are very uncomfortable and you must walk short distances frequently.

Rest movement balance is difficult initially but I recommend at least and hour in bed mid morning and mid afternoon even if just lying down and reading is more restful than sitting.

Mid Afternoon I had interX treatment over my whole hip area and leg down to my knee. Treatment is about an hour and half and helps immensely. The treatment works through the skin and stimulates the body to release pain endorphins to help with recovery. I had no medication post leaving the hospital on Tuesday and InterX was used exclusivity for pain relief.

Felt very tired early evening and went to bed early. I rested but found sleep difficult and only has short hour bursts. I also found I needed the toilet several times in the night which getting in and out of bed is difficult and feels painful as everything stretches. On the positive side everything was working so the medication from surgery was been flushed out.

Days 4-5-6-7

You get into a routine quickly in this early rehabilitation phase with getting up doing Rehabilitation exercises, walking around and doing some basic things like drink making, resting in bed a couple of times a day and having as session of interX therapy daily.

These initial days fly by and the swelling from my surgery is all down my leg along with bruising from the manipulation of my leg during the procedure. Washing is difficult as with hip surgery you have to be very careful with bending and you have to keep your wound dressing dry a challenge for the shower!

The Thrombosis socks are great; really tight, uncomfortable, itch and are very hard to get on. All the aids they give you and I had no chance of getting them on or off. Socks and shoes in general are hard but this is a whole other level. The only positive is that they keep your lower legs warm when walking outside oh and stop thrombosis and help with circulation. I wore mine for 4 weeks 24 hours a day, they do help with circulation and swelling so would advise to wear them.

It was cold and raining when I first came out of hospital so was inside, on Sunday 6 days post surgery went for a short walk and it was great

InterX Treatment of Lower Back Pain in a semi Pro Footballer

Tyler had played professional football when he was younger at a high level and after been released worked a regular job. 

Finding his passion Tyler started his own business and was able to combine the training and playing of semi pro football.

Due to his physical job and training, Tyler started to have increasing issues and pain with his lower back. Tyler tried the conventional route of physio and seeing a chiropractor which had some impact but not lasting.Tyler approached me for a different treatment and style of physical rehabilitation.

Initial consultation isolated the triggers for pain and the back position, and postural issues. Reviewed Tyler's walking gait and found he was a toe striker altering his balance and posture. We also reviewed his running gait and biomechanics as his goal was to be back playing football.

After training or working there is always a level of fatigue and muscles feel tired in the case of the lower back tension can cause compression on the lower back and pain in the lower spine. Tyler was getting woken up in the night and had a very tense back in the morning when getting up.

Targeted the area of pain with the interX medical device and treated all of Tyler's spine with a focus on the  lower back. In addition worked on muscle release of the neck and stimulation of the vagus nerve to help with accelerated pain relief.

With a reduction in pain Tyler was able to do the specific mobility exercise to enable him to exercise and train effectively. Tyler had 4 sessions in total and is now running and training pain free 

InterX Allowed for lasting pain relief and the introduction of mobility exercise to enable accelerated healing.


My Hip Replacement Journey Day 1

Week 1 and the first day very intense

I have had osteoarthritis for 22 years in my hips. I have had my left hip resurfaced 12 years ago at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. I have recently had my right hip replaced at the same hospital on the 10th  December 2018.

This is my recovery story using rehabilitation exercises and functional fitness movements. Most importantly I used InterX therapy for Pain, Inflammation relief with no medication, the InterX device also promotes accelerated healing.

Always a lot happier when the surgery is done and you are recovering

Successful operation for Hip replacement Surgery at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

Day 1

Like lots of patients I arrive early at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital just before 7am. The waiting room fills up and we are gradually called for final checks and to go through what feels like the same questions over and over again.

Meet one of the surgical team and go through the planned procedure one last time, It's the same surgeon I had for my last operation so feel in safe hands as had no issues with my other hip after 12 years. Entering the pre surgery room is a bit like jumping into cold water as it makes it feel very real. You are reassured but you know it's really happening and while been apprehensive at first I did relax and after a short count was out cold....

Waking up post any surgery is different for everyone but the overwhelming feeling is always one of relief! It takes a while to focus and fully assess your surroundings. The nursing and support staff are great and reassure you and a tea is always the order of the day. At this point connected to lower leg compression machines and IV drips the magnitude of the surgery hits home, first thing I did was to move my hip and leg just a fraction, yes a success, Tea time.

You have some food and pleasantries with patients around you but your focus now is visitors, particularly close family, in my case my wife and 8 year old daughter who arrive straight from school. Emotions are always hard as you try to convey you are fine and it went well, but always look the worst for wear.

I had the visit from the surgeon and get the positive news that the operation was a success and that it went without complication. The physiotherapy team arrive to get you out of bed and standing, which is fine getting out of bed as gravity helps, getting back in is much harder. I was measured for crutches and went for a little walk and felt surprisingly OK.

Getting back in bed is always hard as you have to manoeuvre  your operated leg and then it hurts as its at a weak point. You then get to grips with small movements in the bed to try and get comfortable and rest. Dinner time and visitors have to leave for an hour, always odd eating and drinking initially as you struggle to go to the toilet due to medication and you never want much.

Time even a few hours is a great healer and returning visitors and a desire to get moving mean I get out of bed and have a sit down feels great to be more normal. Visiting time over and back to bed to be woken every few hours with medication so the body will accept the new joint and not reject it.

How Does InterX Treat Sciatica

Sciatica

The NHS describes Sciatica as “Sciatica is when the sciatic nerve, which runs from your hips to your feet, is irritated. It usually gets better in 4 to 6 weeks but can last longer” (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/sciatica/)

The Sciatic Nerve is usually irritated and causes pain from compression due to a slipped disc or postural alignment issue at L5 on your lower back just above your buttocks. A slipped disc is when the cushion shock absorber between your vertebra bone discs bulges, becomes inflamed, leaks, or moves and pushes on the sciatic nerve.

Much less common causes of Sciatic pain are spinal stennosis-which is a narrowing of the canal or tube where the nerve passes through, or spondylolisthesis-where a bone moves out of position in your spine which is usually due to a back injury or direct trauma.

General advice is to keep moving!

Even gentle movement will help as the muscles will start to tense as the nerve is inflamed and this leads to the pain spreading down the leg to your foot. By moving you are re-aligning your body and forcing the muscles to work as normal and in pairs. Other obvious general advice is pain medication either over the counter or prescribed.

Key Point don’t sit or lie down for long periods

That links to keep moving, but difficult if you commute to work sit at a desk for 8 hours and manage 8 hours sleep.

It does highlight why you may have sciatica in the first place, compression of the lower back by poor posture and sitting for long periods, or odd positions of movement or repetitive strain

How does interX Treatment help with Sciatica?

Firstly interX treats through the nerves via the skin so it calms down the pain and inflammation of the sciatic nerve. This is usually a progressive process of stimulating the brain to release pain and anti inflammatory chemicals along with energizing the cells in the pain area so they can move to allow the newly arriving cells to be effective.

By stimulating the brain that pain and inflammation cells are needed at a specific area like the sciatic nerve, the body also releases chemicals to aid the repair of the damaged disc which is aggravating it.

Treatment for sciatica is also coupled with mobility movements to aid with walking and sitting along with an understanding of how the body needs to move in the healing phase.

I was suffering from a severe attack of sciatica, which was making even simple walking painful and had only five weeks until a challenging and very active month long trip to Peru, when a friend recommended a visit to Stephen at InterX Pain Clinic. I had five treatments over less than three weeks and made amazing progress. Stephen explained each step of the treatment, answering all my questions so that I understood how InterX worked and exactly what I could expect during the healing process. By the time of my trip I was virtually pain free and coped extremely well.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Injury in Golf and Tennis – Rotator Cuff

Shoulder Pain, Rotator Cuff Injury

A rotator cuff injury, shoulder pain is when you have inflammation or a tear in the muscles or tendons (connecting tissue)or ligaments in your shoulder. It is a common cause of shoulder Pain and can be caused by sudden impact or trauma, or wear and tear with repetitive movements. This injury is common in Golfers during back swing or tennis and badminton with general racket play and overhead shots. Cricket bowlers are also susceptible due to rotational forces with bowling delivery. A rotator cuff injury can make it difficult and painful to do everyday tasks, such as brushing your hair and getting dressed.

Rotator cuff

Your rotator cuff is the group of muscles and tendons that surround your shoulder joint. They work together to keep your shoulder stable and working well. Along with the ligaments that connect the bones in your shoulder together and the capsule that covers your shoulder joint, the rotator cuff helps to keep your shoulder joint in its socket.

Rotator cuff tear

 This is when one or more of the muscles and tendons that make up your rotator cuff tear. You can have a partial tear or a full-thickness tear. Tears can develop after an injury, such as a fall or a dislocated shoulder, or contact in sports like rugby. Small tears can also develop in the tendon after general wear and tear with repetitive sports movements like a golf swing or a serve in tennis

Tendinopathy

This is when the tendons of your rotator cuff are no longer able to repair themselves properly, causing pain in and around them. It’s usually because of wear and tear of your rotator cuff over time and repeated specific sporting movements like a golf swing or a serve in tennis.

Have you got a Rotator Cuff Injury

Common symptoms are degrees of pain with certain movements from a dull ache to severe, overhead movements tend to be difficult, and the pain is usually worse at night especially if you try to sleep on the injured shoulder.

A loss of physical power in the shoulder along with compensation  movements to aid the injury. This is highlighted in sporting movements as you can only adapt a small amount before performance drops. In everyday movements you start to use other arms and elbows more and not do certain tasks. You may also have excessive clicking in the shoulder.

How can InterX Treatment help?

Standard treatment is medication for pain, rest, physiotherapy, steroid Injection, surgery, physiotherapy and if problem linked to sport stop playing.

Stephen at InterX Pain Clinic takes a different approach. Firstly after movement analysis and any links to sporting or work movements specific rehabilitation movements are undertaken. The InterX Treatment will reduce pain and inflammation and the mobility work will help restore movement.

One of the challenges of this type of injury is its complexity and deep tissue. As a result the larger muscles of the shoulder contract and over fire to protect the joint and stop it moving. The InterX treatment can relax these muscles and allow for increased movement resulting in aiding the recovery of the smaller muscles, ligaments and tendons of the rotator cuff. A course of treatment will be required and a staged recovery for sporting movement is needed but great success in treating this injury!

Top Five Golf Injuries

Top Five Injuries In Golf

1. Back Pain, Particularly lower back
2. Shoulder Pain, Particularly Rotator Cuff
3. Golfers Elbow
4. Knee Pain
5. Wrist Pain, Tendonitis

Research indicates that Golf injuries affect up to 20% of players each year. The majority of injuries are a result of overuse and repetitive strain in nature. Due to the complex swing and body position in golf along with the explosive action more traumatic injuries can occur, but are uncommon.

Lower back pain is the most common Golf injury, followed by shoulder and elbow pain. Research evidence indicates that recreational golfers are more likely to sustain and injury than golfers at a professional level. As a golfers handicapp lowers the skill level improves and most importantly consistency in the swing. So even with swing errors injuries are less as the body adapts.

Recreational golfers also have played or play other sports and other injuries impact on their golf. Age is also a factor as we get older our bodies take longer to adapt, are not as flexible, and take longer to recover so the chances of injury are increased.

Back Pain

Lower back pain is the number 1 injury in golf! The repetitive action and the rotation of the spine during the golf swing are the primary cause of pain. The complex swing movement needs correction by a golf professional and structured practice by the Golfer. A variety of structures of the lower back can be affected – the discs, ligaments, muscles or facet joints – but with golfers it tends to be related to discs. A herniated disc or more commonly known as a slipped disc is when gel like material moves from inside the disc and is very painful. Alignment is also critical as this more painful when bending forwards and can cause the muscle at the back to spasm leading to sciatica.

What can you do to prevent back pain?

A golf swing review would be essential with a focus on body movement through all swings from driver to wedge and chipping and putting. Core strength helps and stability exercises are good in back support during the golf swing but will be strengthened with good golf swing technique. Swing within yourself and slow movement down so you have time to execute the swing. Some general physical conditioning, using a trolley instead of carrying a bag and when practising take time and play different shots.

What should you do if you suffer Lower Back Pain?

Rest in the first instance, and if symptoms persist seek medical help. Pain relief medication is usually prescribed post diagnosis and in the form of painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication.

Call Stephen at InterX Pain Clinic 01564 638049

At interX Pain Clinic we have treated many Golfers with lower back pain and enabled them to play golf and not hurt themselves again. We also work out a care package to suit each individual to help with focused mobility plan to help prevent the issue occurring.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain tends to be linked to the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder in Golfers. The rotator cuff muscles (subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor) are small muscles that hold the shoulder in place. Due to compression of the joint in back-swing and extension in follow through these muscles can become damaged due to repetitive use. The pain is usually minor initially and can only be felt on extreme points of the swing and begins as inflammation and tendonitis. Excessive use can lead to tears and more pain if not treated in the early stages.

What can you do to prevent Shoulder Pain?

Golfers have to warm up prior to playing and particularly practice with some specific shoulder stretches and slow deliberate swing practice. Stephen can show some shoulder stabilisation exercises and your golf pro can help significantly with technique.

What should you do if you suffer Shoulder Pain?

As stated earlier the pain tends to increase over time, and early intervention is best with some over the counter pain medication and a swing assessment to correct errors. If problems persist call Stephen at InterX Pain Clinic 01564 638049 and he will be able to help.

Golfers’ Elbow 

Golfer’s elbow is inflammation and pain on the inside of the elbow where the tendons inset into the upper and lower arm. This is caused by griping movements and forceful impact on the arm such as swinging and gripping a golf club. Pain is in the inner part of the elbow when it is bent and as the forearm rotates and moves the arm straight in the swing at impact. If you have excessive wrist action in the swing this can also aggravate the elbow. When it is painful picking up bags, and doing simple gripping and carrying activities can be very painful.

What can you do to prevent Golfer’s Elbow?

Gripping the golf club too hard and trying to “hit the ball” rather than swing can cause elbow problems. Warm up the arms and swing with relaxed half and three quarter swings and focus the power in swing from the body. Temporary relief can be had from wearing a golfers elbow compression strap which work by reducing wrist ex tensor muscles from contracting fully so taking the pressure off the elbow, this will alter your swing.

What should you do if you suffer Golfers’ Elbow?

Initial treatment should be cold compression or ice therapy with a few days rest and some over the counter pain and inflammation medication. Extensive use of compression straps and medication should be avoided as this will not aid the tissue healing. As there is not much tissue on the elbow, InterX Treatment is extremely effective in treating the pain and promoting accelerated healing, see client testimonials

In addition Stephen has a system of physical rehabilitation exercises that accelerate the elbow to a full recovery.

Knee Pain

Knee Pain is common in golfers, rotational forces on the lead leg and weight transfer in the golf swing, along with standing and walking during play can all contribute. Often an injury from a different sport is aggrevated by golf movements and past injuries to cartilage and or cruciate ligaments along with arthritis can all contribute. 

More detail on knee injuries HERE

How can you prevent knee pain?

Pain in the knee leads to subconsciously less movement and in turn leads to muscle wastage of the quadriceps (Thigh) muscles. This process leads to more joint instability and less movement so a downward cycle. Leg strengthening exercise and increased walking and stair climbing can make a huge difference and Stephen can advise on specific exercises if required.

Footwear on the golf course can help along with a trolley to help with the bag. Brisk walking between shots will also help and strengthen muscles.

What should you do if you suffer knee pain?

Initially rest and over the counter medication as previously discussed. If it is painful during the swing a visit to the golf professional will help with mechanics, if its walking a GP will assess and refer as required. In both instances Stephen at InterX Pain Clinic can help more detail on knee injuries HERE

Wrist Pain and Tendonitis

Wrist Pain is linked to Golfers elbow and tend to happen at the same time in extreme cases. The wrists can be damaged at impact particularly with grounding the club and taking a large divot. Grounding can also affect wrists with different club positions for instance rough or playing from a bunker. Wrist issues tend to occur when other elements of the swing are not coordinated so the wrist action tries to catch up and correct mistakes. The prevention and treatment is similar to Golfers Elbow

Knee Injuries

30847857 - painful knee illustration

Knee Pain and treatment

The Knee is a complex joint and as a result often gets injured in some way, whether through impact or wear and tear. The nature of the joint and the range of loading make injuries numerous and sometimes difficult to isolate what is wrong. The knee has 4 ligaments holding it together  Pain on the outside of the knee or lateral pain can be from the Lateral collateral ligament (LCL), the opposite Pain on the inside of knee can be from the main ligament Medial collateral ligament (MCL). Injuries to these ligaments are usually from impact or twisting along with repetitive strain from a particular movement. These ligaments support the knee in sideways movement and are commonly damaged in racket sports and cricket from explosive movement, diving or slipping.

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) also links the thigh bone to the shin bone in the knee. (It’s rarely injured except in car accidents).

I treat many clients with knee ligament damage and post surgery particularly ACL reconstruction.

The knee joint takes a pounding through life as approximately 3 times your body weight is transmitted through the knee every step running! This coupled with less activity and been in a sitting position causes the muscles to reduce in size and put more pressure on the actual joint and ligaments.

A common problem I treat is osteoarthritis of the knee in its various stages. Initial osteoarthritis diagnosis can be halted from progressing at a significant pace, later stage osteoarthritis interx treatment is extremely effective in pain reduction allowing for greater mobility.

InterX Treatment is exceptionally good at accelerating post knee surgery recovery especially in pain relief and mobility. I offer a six week intensive package to allow people to get full range of movement and be back to normal fast
