Anodyne® Therapy – What to Expect
What is Anodyne Therapy?
As part of your plan of care, you will be receiving treatment with an exciting technology, called Anodyne® Therapy. Anodyne® Therapy is an Infrared Light Therapy device that can be applied to any area of the body and is indicated for temporarily increasing circulation and reducing pain, stiffness and muscle spasm. Healthcare Providers that add Anodyne® Therapy to their treatment programs can better address the source of many types of acute and chronic pain, instead of just treating the symptoms.
What might you experience during treatment?
Typically, patients will receive treatments with an Anodyne® Therapy System in conjunction with a therapy plan of care. It is important not to discontinue your treatment plan until you are discharged or have spoken with your therapist. There are no known side effects of Anodyne® Therapy, however, please be aware of the following points:
Patients normally feel a soothing warmth. If the Pads feel too warm, tell your Anodyne® Provider right away so the intensity can be adjusted.
Your skin in the treatment area may be slightly pink after treatment. This is a sign of increased circulation and should disappear within a few hours. If this persists longer than a few hours, notify your Anodyne® Provider at your next session.
You may feel some tingling or minor pain at first. Again, this is a sign of increased circulation. Your Anodyne® Provider can adjust their protocol. If these feelings do not go away within a few weeks, talk to your Anodyne® Provider.
If you have diabetes, monitor your blood sugars regularly, as you are likely beginning a new exercise program. Please note, the use of Anodyne® Therapy alone does not cause hypoglycemia.
You may need a home system to STAY better.
If you experience relief with Anodyne® Therapy, and you have an acute injury or problem, more than likely, you will not require ongoing treatments. If you have a chronic condition causing your pain or circulatory problem, clinical treatment with Anodyne® Therapy will not be a cure, but rather a drug-free treatment for your condition.
Affordable Anodyne® home systems are available for continuing pain relief in the privacy and comfort of your home. The purchase of an Anodyne® home system is a lifetime investment in your ongoing health and wellness.
