How does the RecoveryRx® technology work?

Pain is caused by inflammation, which is a swelling in the tissues of the body that then puts pressure on nerves causing pain. Chemical signals are also released by damaged cells in inflamed tissue that activate the nerves changing a chemical signal into an electrical impulse that causes pain for the body. Inflammation can be both acute, occurring immediately after an injury, or chronic (long lasting) inflammation which is unhealthy and can linger for months or years. Many diseases have been linked to chronic inflammation.

Clinical Use

Working as an adjunct therapy, RecoveryRx® adds another dimension to multimodal approaches to pain management improving patient comfort.  RecoveryRx® has been clinically shown to significantly reduce postoperative pain and the use of narcotic pain medication postoperatively, potentially reducing the incidence of adverse side effects associated with these drugs.

Pulsed shortwave therapy is widely used to treat pain in a wide array of medical applications, including musculoskeletal pain, edema, postoperative pain and the promotion of wound healing. These claims are backed by an extensive list of clinical publications and research. 

PEMF therapy has been shown to have a number of therapeutic effects. These include reducing inflammation, increasing wound tensile strength, vasodilation, promoting angiogenesis and reducing postoperative pain. These effects result in a decreased need for postoperative pain medication and promotion of wound healing. Cell studies have shown gene families involved in tissue repair up-regulated after PEMF exposure (3). In mouse models of diabetic wounds, PEMF therapy has shown to increase dermal cell proliferation, increase tissue granulation and increase wound healing rates (4). And in human experimental wounds, PEMF treatment with an extended use device decreased healing times from 54 days in control to 39 days in the treated group (5), with advanced wound morphology also seen.

After waiting almost 5 months for the doctors to investigate....

After waiting almost 5 months for the doctors to investigate a problem in my knee I recently had a knee arthroscopy at the local hospital. I was sent home with Co-codamol (an opioid painkiller for the treatment of severe pain) for pain relief, and a physio plan. I decided to just try the Recovery RX to manage the pain and have been virtually pain free since coming out of hospital 7 days ago. My knee is still swollen and physio is helping to strengthen the weakened area, but I am amazed at how little pain I have post op. I have taken no other form of medication for pain relief.

I have also noticed that in the leg which has worn the Recovery RX, my troublesome varicose veins are much less bothersome. They are much less pronounced and I have not had any itching or discomfort from them. I will be using the Recovery RX on my other leg as well. I have had discomfort from veins for more than 30 years.

I think the little battery in my Recovery RX must be supercharged or has forgotten to switch itself off after 720 hours as it is still going. I have got another Recovery RX ready to take over when it finally stops working.

Thanks so much for this amazing gadget.

Used after knee op

Definitely recommend this to anyone who’s recently had relevant surgery or trauma. Wore it all of the expect showering etc, and 100% felt the benefit. Speeded up my recovery time and got rid of a lot of the pain, also helped me sleep a lot better due to the pain relief. Very lucky to have known about this!

After Knee operation

After a knee operation, I was in a lot of discomfort. The pain medication prescribed by my doctor didn't help much and also upset my stomach really badly, forcing me to stop taking it. A friend suggested I try Recovery Rx. I was a tad sceptical, but thought I might as well give it a go. Any port in a storm, so to speak. To my pleasant surprise, I began to get a lot of relief after about six hours of use. I slept with the device on, and the next day I was about 80% pain free. I'm extremely grateful to my friend for having suggested using Recovery Rx.
