Aggressive Treatment For Severe Ankle Pain
The standard Doctor's direction for most ankle injuries is to rest the injury and let it heal over time. Doctors usually recommend patients try to stay off their ankle for a period of time and to take something for the pain. In most cases the injury will heal itself within 1 to 3 months without treatment.
With a more severe or persistent injury, or due to time constraints such as in the case of professional athletes, time is critical and a more proactive treatment plan is required. For the most important patients, a regular routine of BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) is undertaken to significantly accelerate healing. Where rapid recovery and complete healing is required, BFST® is also required.
While instructions to use pain killers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen (analgesics) are what patients want to hear, medical professionals recognize that masking the pain does nothing to heal the injury and that in fact re-injury is more likely to occur when the pain of an injury is masked with drugs. Most common analgesics are known to interfere with the clotting of blood and can actually interfere with the healing process and result in additional inflammation. For best results, ColdCure® treatment serves to actually reduce inflammation and control ankle pain without adverse side effects. ColdCure® technology can contribute significantly to reduced pain and more rapid recovery for high priority patients.
