Overcoming the Challenge of Treating Pain

November 01, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Chronic pain affects one in five Americans; more than those affected by diabetes and heart disease combined. Due to this large population, there is a desperate need to treat patients with chronic pain conditions to ensure that they experience relief from their symptoms.

One of the challenges in treating chronic pain is that there is a need for constant education on the part of the medical community. Through no fault of their own, many in the medical community are not aware of the methods available to them when treating chronic pain. Research is consistently developing in the field of chronic pain, but until real-time clinical treatments and research catches up, that gap will continue.

Another challenge in treating chronic pain is that pain can be considered subjective, and everyone experiences pain differently. Even patients suffering from the exact same condition will experience different sensations and severity of pain. This can make it difficult to rely on treatment protocols, as what works for one patient may not work for another.

Physicians may also see a significant challenge in treating chronic pain due to several sources of pain. Chronic pain patients may experience pain from their joints, muscles, and nerves, all of which must be approached and treated differently. With all of these challenges, chronic pain patients are often at a disadvantage. They will go through several treatments to find the one that works, often undergoing treatments with side effects and rehabilitation factors. One of the ways to mitigate this is for physicians to utilize a product that can safely and effectively treat several forms and multiple levels of chronic pain.

Recently, Gensco Laboratories launched SpeedGel Rx, a prescription homeopathic medication that is intended for the conservative treatment of chronic pain. SpeedGel Rx is a product that utilizes patented "Isopeutic Transdermal Technology," has no odor, and does not get hot or cold. This prescriptive product is absorbed through the skin to work only on inflamed, affected tissue, and does not have the potential side effects of prescription pain medications.

Used as an initial approach in the treatment of pain, SpeedGel Rx can be a safe, effective treatment for symptomatic pain due to many pain conditions.
