Exercise helps, even with chronic pain
We all know pain caused by muscle tension, with back pain the most widespread. Such pain can restrict our mobility and make us feel like exercise will hurt too much. Lack of exercise leads to a weakening of the musculoskeletal system which, in turn, leads to further restrictions of mobility and sometimes on to diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatism and Multiple Sclerosis. From there, secondary disorders can occur which, like osteoporosis, can be very serious. Which pain is worse? Taking exercise with tight muscles or managing the pain of a fracture after a fall?
Lack of exercise encourages pain
Exercise is key to managing pain: mobility boosts health – immobility encourages pain and disease.
Easy enough to say ‘Get some exercise!’ but with the LIV treatment system it’s easy to do, even for those with chronic pain. Ten minutes a day on the low intensity vibration training system for muscles, bones and the cardiovascular system will give sufficient exercise to make a difference. It really offers a gentle, medication-free treatment for chronic pain.
Pain encourages immobility and therefore further muscle and bone breakdown. When you suffer from pain, gentle treatment and exercises are advised: gentle and safe, especially when considering some of the ailments that are causing the pain.
Breaking the cycle of pain
People in pain find themselves in a vicious circle of “pain > rest > tension > not enough exercise > aggravation > even more pain”. This circle can be broken by changing the ‘not enough exercise’ element with the LIV treatment system. Relieving the pain can lead to less tension, more mobility and increasing feeling of wellbeing.
Preventing pain by preventing immobility
The long term aim of meaningful treatment, including medication-free treatment, is to enable people to participate in a fully active life again. Those affected should start with exercise and movement treatment as soon as possible - even if this is just for short periods of time.
Medication alone does not offer a long-lasting solution. In order to relieve and prevent pain, exercise is important: some experts and pain sufferers would even say that exercise is the most important therapy.
When pain radiates, its effects are felt in other parts of the body. Structures and functions of the body influence each other: body tissues (such as bones and muscles) and bodily functions (such as movement, vitality and the ability to react) depend on each other. Accordingly, a change in the function (for example, owing to a lack of exercise) can lead to a change in the structures (for example, wear of bones, osteoporosis, or muscular degeneration). Vice versa, a change in the structures (for example, owing to an accident or illness) can lead to an effect on the functions (for example, loss of movement or circulatory problems).
Pain as an alarm signal
Pain is an alarm signal from the body telling you something needs your attention. Many diseases – such as cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, rheumatism and Type 2 diabetes – can be prevented or moderated by recognising the early signs and responding to the ‘alarm’ of pain. In many cases, taking more exercise, improving your diet and engaging in a healthier lifestyle can bring about many improvements.
Where pain is already being experienced and lack of physical activity or immobility are already a problem, taking exercise can be quite a challenge. Training on the LIV device can really help by mobilising the muscles and cardiovascular system, building strength in your bones and legs and giving greater stability in the core to enable you to move more freely and with less pain.
The treatment is gentle and safe because the stimuli are small and easily tolerated. Marodyne LIV is the only medical product in the world that generates stimuli of 0.4 g constantly at 30 Hz and an amplitude of approximately 0.1 mm.
Encouraging blood flow
Exercise boosts the body’s own healing processes by encouraging activity of the muscles, blood flow and the cardiovascular system. In turn, this supplies oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells - important prerequisites for health and wellbeing » more
