The Many Options for Non-Invasive Treatments in Pain Management You Didn’t Know

Many patients suffer from chronic pain, with little or no relief from opioids, physical therapy or even surgical treatments. For example, Ritchie was an athletic 35-year-old man who had been diagnosed with a condition called Osgood-Schlatter’s[1] Disease at the age of 15. This condition, which is a result of rapid lower extremity bone growth in adolescents, resulted in Ritchie’s suffering with bilateral knee pain and swelling below his kneecaps. At the age of 17, Ritchie underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee to remove damaged cartilage. Despite this treatment, he remained in chronic pain that was unrelieved by pain medication, anti-inflammatories or physical therapy. After his physician prescribed a 7-week course of daily D’OXYVA[2] treatment, Ritchie became pain free and was able to resume all of his former sports activities, including tennis and golf.

How Common is Chronic Pain?

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health[3]chronic pain (pain lasting more than 3 months) is extremely common, affecting more than 25 million American adults every day.

In addition, at least 40 million American adults suffer from non-daily but severe chronic pain.

Patients with severe chronic pain were found to generally suffer from more chronic health problems and more disability than patients with less severe pain.

What Causes Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain can result from an injury or from a disease or condition, such as one of the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Cancer
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Post-Surgical Pain

The Use of D’OXYVA in the Treatment of Chronic Pain

Microcirculation refers to the blood flow in the smallest blood vessels of the body, which are the venules (smallest veins) and the capillaries (connect venules and arterioles). When the microcirculation is compromised or blocked and blood flow to the nerves is reduced, chronic pain can ensue.

D’OXYVA is a commercially available non-invasive deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator that when applied to the thumb delivers a high level of pharmaceutical grade carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor.

The CO2 diffuses through the skin and is delivered through the blood stream, travelling to the smallest blood vessels of the body, where it has a vasodilating effect[4] and acts as a nerve stimulant that helps relieve neurogenic pain.

Diabetic patients with uncontrolled blood sugar have reported neuropathy pain relief within minutes of administration of the D’OXYVA device.

In summary, D’OXYVA is an excellent pain reliever for many different types of chronic pain.

HOW D’OXYVA CAN HELP?

D’OXYVA® (deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator) has achieved over 90%* elimination of all sorts of chronic pain in 100% of subjects either the same day or in a few days, such as from a very high 8 to a very low 1 on the Visual Analog Scale (VAS).

Pain-free life is here. Beyond major clinical outcomes for mild to extremely severe conditions, even when strong opioid-based painkillers were ineffective, new and long-term users of D’OXYVA reported relief of persistent long-term chronic pain in 2 – 7 days associated with: Neuropathy, fibromyalgia, chemo-, and radiation therapy, chronic wounds, arthritis, osteoporosis, migraine headaches, and lower back pain.
