When muscle mobility improves, pain improves. At present are marketed more than 50 potential therapies promising to relieve the pain, lessen the suffering, and offer a cure for this problem. However, there is sound evidence for only a minority of these therapies.
Massage is a simple way of easing pain, while at the same time aiding relaxation and promoting a feeling of well-being and a sense of receiving good care. Soft tissue massage is thought to improve physiologic and clinical outcomes by offering the symptomatic relief of pain through physical and mental relaxation.
Massage is recognized as a safe therapeutic modality, without risks or adverse effects. Proponents of massage therapy claim it can minimize pain and disability and speed return-to-normal function for patients with chronic nonspecific pain, especially when combined with exercises and education.
A systematic review of massage in the chronic nonspecific back pain performed by The Cochrane Collaboration conclude that massage might be beneficial, especially when combined with exercises and education (Furlan et al, 2002; Furlan et al, 2008), like other groups (Erns, 1999; Hadler et al 1987). Some systematic reviews conclude that massage produce better effects in clinical trials than in the usual care, because the application of massage has a greater variability between intra-therapist e inter-therapist in the usual practice than in clinical research where massage administration is standardised.
PHYSIUM overcomes manual therapy since it produces a mechanical stimulus that produces a computerized, protocolised massage (by on the muscle-connective, vascular, lymphatic, and neurologic systems) that allows to administer the same doses to all patients.
PHYSIUM is beeing used un physical therapist centers. You can access the results they are getting at “Results and PHYSIUM safety” menu option.
