InterX Treatment reduces acute pain in patients following total knee replacement surgery!
No only is InterX treatment significantly better than traditional protocols in pain reduction the treatment also helped with the increase in Range of Movement of the operated knee allowing for increased mobility and recovery. Don’t take my word for it have a look at this published research.
(InterX ™) reduces acute pain in patients following total knee replacement surgery: a randomised, controlled trial Ashok K Nigam,1 Drena M Taylor,1 and Zulia Valeyeva (2011) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3182948/
The study looks at comparing recovery protocols following Total Knee Replacement at Prince Philip Hospital, Carmarthenshire NHS Trust. The results were after 8 sessions of InterX treatment of short 30 minute duration to compare to other pain relief methods tens and pharmaceutical protocols.
The difference is profound for the InterX Effect 53% of patients at discharge recorded no Pain, 43% mild (0 – 3) on the pain scale and 4% moderate pain (4 – 7) on the pain scale. This compared to 47% mild (0 – 3) on the pain scale, 30% moderate (4 – 7) on the pain scale and 23% severe (8 – 10) on the pain scale. All patients were discharged with the required 90 degree bend in the knee, however the InterX Group had a significant increase on knee bend on discharge.
How does this work at the InterX Pain Clinic in Stratford Upon Avon?
The treatment process has been significantly enhanced by myself to incorporate bespoke movements and processes to increase the InterX Effect. I use a 3, 6, 9 approach to treatment post-surgery with the first 3 sessions focused on pain relief and basic mobility. The next 3 sessions working on pain and inflammation and bending and straightening the knee to aid more advanced mobility. The final 3 sessions are mainly on anti-inflammatory and healing along with extended walking and balance. I have presented this at 2 different global conferences for InterX Treatment.
I also have identified a similar process of 3, 6, 9 to aid in the use of your knee replacement. Patients typically work hard on recovery post-surgery in the initial six weeks. The main goal is normal pre surgery mobility pain free without using crutches or a walking aid. What people tend to forget is how there mobility had changed due to pain and they were limited as to what they could do. I use my rehabilitation process with patients who have limited knee pain but not getting full use out of their joint. They maybe experiencing limited range of movement making stairs difficult. Or not able to fully straighten their knee so standing and walking are more difficult. I have had great success treating people over the last 11 years and if you want to find out more about how I work book a call below!
