Radiotherapy is very effective in the treatment of chronic pain of the musculoskeletal system
Not many people know this: Even chronic pain can often be treated well with radiotherapy. That especially involves pain triggered by the supporting and musculoskeletal system i.e. orthopaedic conditions.
Chronic pain – often the starting position
People often suffer of pronounced pain due to chronic joint or soft tissue injuries conditions and partially significantly limited mobility.
In many cases physical therapy or medication will help. However there are patients where such relief by using low-dose radiotherapy
A proven approach for many years but still not in use with it’s full potential, is low-dose radiotherapy for the relief of such chronic pain.
The affected regions of the body are treated with a very low-dosed radiotherapy. This therapy will often lead, even with chronic pain, to a significant relief, which often results in full and lasting pain relief. The pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effect of low-dose, i.e. gentle x-rays has had a proven effect in the past and has been proven in many large scientific investigations. The few therapy appointments necessary last only a few seconds and are completely painless.
Often there will be an improvement of the complaint already during the course of the therapy. However pain may also intensify for a while during therapy. This seemingly paradox effect is however a good sign as it often indicates that the treated area will mid- and long-term respond very well to radiotherapy.
