Sharap Plus: A Private Chain of Pain Clinics
Even for Israelis, not to mention tourists who don't have the same medical coverage the Sharap+ chain of pain clinics offers a solution for a range of disabilities resulting in pain.
The advantage of the private pain clinics is that they offer a wide range of innovative treatments and technological devices for treatment of pain all under one roof. The treatment include both conventional medicine options as well as alternative medicine and their staff is varied as well and includes osteopaths, chiropractors, doctors of chinese medicine etc. The specialists in the clinics are chosen carefully and are all experts in their respective fields with over 13 years of experience in pain management.
Each patient is diagnosed with respect to the source of the pain and is provided with a tailored treatment regimen that can combine a number of treatment techniques according to his or her health problem in order to ensure pain relief and maximal recovery over time.
A list of the common problems that are treated in the clinics includes:
Ruptured or bulging disc problems
Back and neck pain
Numbness / tingling
General orthopedic complaints
Following diagnosis, the patients can receive one or a combination of the following treatements at the clinic:
These pain treatment beds are a relatively novel therapy. The beds generate electromagnetic impulses that affect the function of the nerve cells in the pain area. The cells that are electrically affected, function better helping to reduce and even stop the pain. The treatment is approved by the FDA.
The treatment method is based on acupuncture of the pain area causing the body to heal itself by increased blood flow and the release of analgesic hormones. The treatment has been scientifically researched and proven to be effective in the treatment of pain. The treatment is headed by Noam Ezra, a pain therapist and Chairman of the Association of Chinese Medicine.
Osteopathy is a manual method of treatment that refers to the complexity of the patient's body systems to bring about proper functioning. The treatment includes new and effective techniques focusing on the joints, muscles and spine to quickly soothe patients' pain and bring them back to full recovery. The treatment is adapted for all ages from infants to adults and is also used for athletic injuries.
The method of treatment is based on the release of shock waves that transmit mechanical pressures that stimulate new blood vessels in the treated area. Doing so leads to a significant reduction and even healing of the painful area. The treatment has been supported by many studies, and in recent years has moved from the umbrella of alternative medicine practices to the conventional one.
In cases where a vertebra moves, pressure on the spine results in pain and movement restriction. The method of chiropractic treatment is based primarily on the diagnosis of spinal status and the source of pain related to the skeleton, muscles and bones. After finding the source of the pain, a quick manual operation is performed that releases the vertebra and returns it to its natural alignment.
In short, the Sharap Plus private clinics offer personal attention and guidance in pain management and are highly available with respect to queues in case you require rapid attention.
