Almost all of us are living with at least one chronic pain condition. Chronic pain interrupts with the daily routine so severely that life becomes depressing for those living with it. We came across one such painful case which we are sharing with you that shows how any chronic pain can be conquered naturally.
Case Study – Overview of Chronic Low Back Pain
Low Back Pain is one of the leading chronic pain complaints encountered by physical therapists worldwide. Various causes of back pain have been reported among which, back pain due to prolonged sitting hours is the commonest due to the highest rate of sedentary desk job of people. While inactive lifestyle, any severe back disorders, a side effect of any other health conditions, injury, or trauma, are the other reasons for lower back pain. Following is a case study of Chronic Lower Back Pain (CLBP) that is proof of how one can overcome chronic pain.
A 30-year-old male was diagnosed with CLBP who had no history of any chronic disease or condition or injury. When asked about lifestyle, he said, “10 to 7 desk jobs, traveling for work, irregular gym visits, and late night sleep.” There is no doubt how he developed chronic pain in the lower back. He weighs about 88 pounds and hardly works out. He often takes painkillers to get rid of sharp pain in the lower back to avoid taking leave from work. Troubled with back pain for over a year, he experimented different treatment methods to anyhow put an end to it.
His tests revealed degenerative changes in the lumbar spine, predominantly at L1 and L3. Disc projection was noted at L4-L5 with grade 1 spondylolisthesis.
Meloxicam (anti-inflammatory) and Tramadol (weak opioid analgesic), were prescribed to him.
Due to CLBP, he experienced notable functional limitations daily like bending, lifting, or any other kind of trunk movements. The constant pain affected his work and behavior. He used to lose his control quickly and was often moody and irritated. He was banned from driving a vehicle by his doctor. He feared about disability and becoming permanently bedridden.
How SONICTENS helped?
Tired and on the verge of depression, he came across UltraCare PRO’s electrotherapy devices online. After going through a bunch of positive reviews about its products on Amazon, Flipkart and all and reading about the electrotherapy itself, he decided to go for it.
SONICTENS, a sleek and simple electrotherapy machine that is a combination of two very well-known treatment modalities, ‘Therapeutic Ultrasound’ and ‘TENS ( Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) therapy, has proven its worth in treating several chronic pains and discomforts. Unlike two individual products – ultrasound machine and TENS unit, SONICTENS gives you both in one easy-to-carry device. Recommended even by pain specialists and physiotherapists, the combined treatment of SONICTENS promotes faster healing, safely, and naturally, without any side effects.
The therapeutic ultrasound waves of ultrasound therapy produce a deep heating sensation that accelerates the healing process by stimulating the blood and oxygen flow towards the painful area. While, the TENS unit in it generates gentle massaging electrical impulses that travel via electrodes placed on the affected area, blocking the pain signals from reaching the brain and helping the body to heal itself naturally by increasing the production of the body’s natural pain killer, endorphins.
After bringing SONICTENS home, he started his back pain treatment regularly and even carried it to his work due to its portability. Within a week he started seeing a notable difference in his back pain which he hasn’t felt in a year. The sharp pain which made him difficult to sit at work or forced him to take a painkiller started reducing and within a month, back pain was almost a guest visitor for him.

He can bend or lift and even dance around freely
No more anxiety, fear or depression
He feels relaxed at the end of the day and hence sleeps well.
Chronic pain is not something one has to live with forever. It is treatable with capable electrotherapy machines like SONICTENS and others. Like him, you too can end your chronic suffering; you just need to take the step.
