Relief and Management of Chronic Pain – IceOtherm

Relief and Management of Chronic Pain – IceOtherm, which is being sold through www.orthomedical.in in India, has been proven to be most successful in treating localized and chronic pain.

John Saringer, professional engineer developed the easy to use, easy to maintain, precision engineered IceOtherm. The IceOtherm is a hand held device which harnesses the Thermal Grill anomaly. By applying both mild heat and cooling to the areas of chronic pain, an intense stimulation is created (a paradoxical burning sensation), blocking and confusing the pain messages going to the brain. A ceramic core cools the center of the treatment surface to 25 degrees C cooler than the outside collar while the outer collar heats up to 42 to 48 degrees Celsius. The unit takes approximately 5 minutes before the collar warms up to reach peak therapeutic levels.

Relief and Management of Chronic Pain – IceOtherm

Canadian Engineer and successful inventor of medical devices, John Saringer, began to study the effects of heat and cold for the temporary treatment of pain, in the early 1990’s. He observed that there were many devices available on the market designed to provide some kind of sensory stimulation that will distract a person from their pain, or will interrupt the pain pattern. Noting that both heat and cold treatment products have been proven to be very effective sensory stimulators, he observed that “contrast therapy”, or the sequential application of heat and cold, proved to be more effective than heat or cold alone. John Saringer’s contribution to this field of investigation was the enhanced pain relief control that came from the “concurrent” application of heat and cold.

After developing over twenty prototypes John Saringer arrived at the optimum combination of heat (around the perimeter of the head of the device) and cold (on a small ceramic tile located at the centre of the head of the device). On May 13, 1997 John was awarded U.S. Patent # 5,628,769, Method And Devices For Producing Somatosensory Stimulation Using Temperature.
The innovation behind the IceOtherm.

The IceOtherm is a class II medical device designed to engage the body’s natural healing abilities using both hot and cold stimuli. The interlaced hot and cold stimuli, induces a paradoxical burning sensation known as the Thermal Grill Illusion. The Thermal Grill Illusion has been known to scientists for over a century, and was developed and first studied extensively by Thunberg in 1896. In scientific research applications, the thermal grill is used to create harmless sensations of pain.

Clinical trial results for one of the best Back Support and treatment products in India..

This blog post provides information about the results of the clinical test which was carried out on patients who used one of the best Back support and treatment Belts available in India, Disk Dr.WG.30. These Pathological investigations have been carried out by the orthopedic surgery departments at both Inje University Seoul Paik Hospital and Sanggye Paik Hospital since 1995 which has shown that approximately 85% of patients experienced an improvement in their condition within 3 days of using the Disk Dr.

Below pictures shows an X-Ray examination of the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine. In the X-ray examination on the left, it shows the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine at 8mm. In the X-ray examination on the right, of the same patient after the usage of Disk Dr.WG 30, shows that the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine was increased by an average of 3mm.

X-Ray examinations

X-Ray examinations have shown that the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine were increased by an average of 3mm. The resultant lowering of intra-discal pressure by the Disk Dr. has been shown to reduce pain and provide ongoing treatment through long-term wearing of the Traction Belt.

This increase in interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine by an average of 3mm results in lowering of intra-discal pressure which in turn reduce pain.

In this picture, the picture on the left shows the situation of the person before using the Disk Dr.WG 30. It shows that in lumbar disc herniation, the intervertebral disc or the the nucleus pulposus is extricated from it’s normal anatomice position in the intervertebral space.This herniated disc compresses on nerve roots and causes back pain, sciatics and muscle spasm.

In the picture towards the right, a person who used Disk Dr.WG 30 for few weeks showed improvement whereby Disk Dr.WG 30  helps return nucleus pulposus or the intervertebral disc to it’s original position by reducing the pressure in the intervertebral space creating traction through the air cells within the device.

One of most efficient back treatment and support Belt, Now available in India

Disk Dr. WG30 Back Treatment and Support Belt

Disk Dr. WG30 back treatment and back support belt is recommended for lower back pain relief, herniated disc, sciatica, spinal decompression

 

Disk Dr. WG30 Back Treatment and Support Belt is one of the most efficient back treatment and support belt in the market. It is available in USA on Medicare and other major insurance. Orthomedical brings this wonderful and miraculous belt to India.

How does it work?

The Disk Dr’s patented, vertically expandable columns provide secure mechanical support for the lumbar vertebrae. The air inflated belt acts to provide a butress action between the lower part of the rib cage and a patient’s hip, diverting weight bearing forces away from the lumbar spine and thereby reducing intra discal pressure.

Unique and patented air-traction design sets it apart from all other available back supports which are intended solely to restrict movement of the lumbar spine. The Disk Dr. not only provides superbly comfortable support but has the added benefit of applying gentle traction to the lumbar vertebrae, thereby reducing intra-discal pressure and providing speedy and effective relief of pain.

Clinical Results 

Pathological investigations carried out by the orthopedic surgery departments at both Inje University Seoul Paik Hospital and Sanggye Paik Hospital since 1995 showed that approximately 85% of patients experienced an improvement in their condition within 3 days of using the Disk Dr.

X-Ray examinations have shown that the interval of the intervertebral discs at the 4th and 5th segments of the lumbar spine were increased by an average of 3mm. The resultant lowering of intra-discal pressure by the Disk Dr. has been shown to reduce pain and provide ongoing treatment through long-term wearing of the Traction Belt.
