Natural Pain Treatments & Mobility Aids
Taking medications to ease pain can be like the band-aid rather than the cure. You might temporarily get rid of the pain, but it doesn’t necessarily address the cause.
Physiotherapy offers an approach that doesn’t require drugs.
Using the body’s own mechanisms to heal itself, such as dialling the body’s inflammatory response up or down depending on the the need to kick healing processes into action or settle them down when the body’s immune system has turned on itself or gone into overdrive, there are many physiotherapy tools and methods that can heal your pain.
Understanding the structures of the body and how it moves, physiotherapy can offer natural joint pain relief whilst regaining flexibility of the tissues.
Physiotherapists also can provide mobility assistance, so that weak muscles can become strong again, stiff joints can move, and walking retrained so independence is regained.
This might also be achieved through aids and equipment, which can be ordered to meet your specific needs to move and rest.
Listed below are some natural pain treatments that can give you relief and mobility assistance equipment and aids that will help you maintain or regain your independence and lifestyle.
Don’t let those aches and pains get you down . If you want a little extra comfort between treatments until you’re pain-free, or if you haven’t got the time or resources to seek the assistance of a health professional yet, our hot packs are a great natural way to get natural joint pain relief and muscle flexibilty without having to step out of the house. Provided you don’t use them on injuries less than 72 hours old, heat packs can often settle your pain and stiffness.
Once you’re better, the hot packs never have to go to waste – they’re a great safe alternative to a hot water bottle for those cold winter nights. Pop a microwaved hot pack into your bed 10 – 15 minutes before you get into it, and you’ll be toasty warm under the covers – and won’t need to worry about the risk of scalding!

Flex-Ice Cold Packs
Ever found yourself wondering whether you’ve had an ice pack on your injury long enough to assist with healing? Wonder no more! Our specially-designed cold packs wrap comfortably around the injured part, and change colour when the pack has been on the injured part for sufficient time. Being a particularly natural pain treatment for acute injuries, cold packs prevent the inflammatory process going into overdrive. This helps to limit the pain and swelling whilst the body is in the process of healing itself, assisting with maintaining your flexibility over the longer term. Just remember to always have a cloth or towel between the skin and the ice pack to avoid ice burns.
