Physiotherapy, a drug-free pain relief

July 13, 2022

Pain is one of the most serious problems nowadays, as many people suffer from chronic pain, and some experience the pain so intense that they can no longer engage in their usual day-to-day activities.


Physiotherapy, a drug-free pain relief

No wonder painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs have grown into such an enormous industry. However, these drugs have their own share of troubles, from addiction to dangerous effects on internal organs.

Pain relief shouldn't come from a pill bottle.

Taking pain management drugs as a way to rid yourself of pain may seem like a good and quick fix, but the risks far outweigh the benefits. Over-the-counter medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen can lead to undesirable side effects. For instance, taking excessive amounts of aspirin can cause stomach bleeding and lead to kidney failure.

Moreover, painkillers are also responsible for several side effects, including respiratory depression, constipation, anxiety, and nausea. Painkillers mask pain without really treating the underlying causes. With physiotherapy, you will not only find ways to alleviate your pain but also ways to improve your overall function. 

Physiotherapy offers numerous advantages as a safe, effective, all-natural pain management treatment. A physiotherapist takes each individual's symptoms and their corresponding underlying causes into account when devising a physiotherapy plan for pain management.

Physiotherapists work hard to get to the root of your problem and treat it accordingly. Unlike painkillers, physiotherapy helps to enhance your body's healing, providing long-term relief instead of short-term.

You will undergo a comprehensive physical assessment during your initial appointment to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. From there, a personalised treatment plan will be devised for you.

Physiotherapy can do more than just help you get rid of pain; it can also help you improve your mental health. Physiotherapy will help your body move and work, releasing happy hormones called endorphins.

Don't struggle with pain and harmful medications any longer. Instead of settling for quick-fix and temporary relief, contact KL Kinetic today to help you get better through a drug-free treatment.

Our licensed physical therapists are seasoned in movement and mobilisation, and they would be more than happy to help you achieve a full recovery. Live your life to the fullest by scheduling a consultation today!

Why settle for the illusion relief when you have the real thing and improve your health and functionality in the process?
