Introducing Neomed's New Pain Rescue Program

Following much demand from around the world we are very happy to announce the launch of our new Pain Rescue Program specifically designed to help those who suffer from chronic pain.

It is estimated that over 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain which is defined by doctors as a disease of the central nervous system that presents as pain in any area of the body and which persists or progresses over a period of time lasting longer than 3 months . This pain can be without any apparent biological value or can be triggered by a health condition or injury.

Chronic pain as opposed to acute pain can severely impact a person's life, often affecting their work, relationships and day to day activities without any relief in sight.

We want to help those suffering from chronic pain to regain some quality of life once more using some of the most innovative and natural therapies available today . We have created this program to take place over 5 days so that it is accessible to more individuals who cannot be away from home or work for long periods of time. The program is also extendable for anyone wishing to stay longer with us and further progress their path to pain recovery.

Our Pain Rescue Program can help those suffering from:

Chronic Back Pain

Chronic Joint, Bone or Muscle Pain

Chronic Migraines

Chronic Nerve Pain

Our clinic is based just outside Limassol in Cyprus in a beautiful healing and peaceful location so that you can escape the hustle and bustle of life and allow your body to unwind, de-stress and relax while our expert therapists take care of you.

The program takes place over 5 days, Monday to Friday. We can arrange daily transfers from the clinic to your chosen accommodation. We can also on request send you a list of recommended places to stay while you are receiving treatment at our clinic.

A Fast and Powerful Option for Knee and Joint Problems

Knee-joint-injections.jpg

Millions of aging people are plagued by arthritis in the knees. Osteoarthritis is a slowly progressive disease in which joint cartilage breaks down.

The pathological changes include degradation of the articular cartilage, formation of osteophytes, inflammation of the synovium, degeneration of the ligaments and thickening of the subchondral bone. As a result, symptoms of joint pain and stiffness occur, with grinding and cracking sensations. Repeated activity that causes high stress on the joints and aging are the most common causes of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis causes severe pain, disability, and reduction in quality of life.

The articular cartilage has a limited ability of intrinsic healing and repair due to the lack of blood vessels, lymphatics and nerves. Currently, there are no approved treatments for osteoarthritis that can slow down the structural progression or delay the need for total knee replacement.

Ozone is a naturally occurring gas that consists of three atoms of oxygen. It has been used for treatment for over a century. The alternative therapy of ozone gas appears to be promising in reducing inflammation and balancing free radicals in the body. Ozone has therapeutic aims in chronic diseases, by activating the cellular metabolism, reducing prostaglandin synthesis, reducing oxidative stress, vasodilation and angiogenesis stimulation. Injecting ozone gas into the knee can reduce pain and improve functioning and overall health.

Ozone has a significantly broader mechanism of action than NSAIDs and corticosteroids, providing anti-inflammatory effect and antalgic gait. The value of intra-articular ozone in reducing pain and improving function in patients with knee osteoarthritis was confirmed in several clinical trials. Intra-articular ozone is safe to use. Adverse events rarely occur, with acute pain in the knee at the moment of the ozone application.

Ozone gas injections can give a patient a better quality of life with less pain in performing the daily life activities. It can also delay the need of joint replacement surgery.

Weekly intra-articular ozone administration for 8 weeks can reduce osteoarthritis associated pain, improve joint function and improve the quality of life of patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.
