Worldwide, pain is now listed as the “Fifth Vital Sign” along with pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and respiration rate. Pain is felt as a result of the brain’s response to disease or damage to the body, as signals are picked up by sensory receptors in nerve endings in the damaged tissue such as bone, muscle, or organs. The nerves transmit the signals to the spinal cord, and then into the brain where the signals are interpreted as pain. Acute pain can come suddenly for a limited period, while chronic pain lasts longer and is associated with a long-term illness, such as osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia. Chronic pain can be due to damaged tissue, but is usually as a result of nerve damage.
A wound is the breakage of normal alignment of body cells with or without destroying them, which may impair or stop their function. Wounds need time and treatment to heal. However, wounds that fail to repair over time and do not heal as expected within 2-3 months are classified as chronic wounds and include pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, diabetes-associated foot and leg ulcers, wounds caused by radiation therapy and non-closing surgical wounds. Healing chronic wounds can be challenging as they produce high amounts of exudate and are frequently exposed to potential infection.
Injury is damage caused to the body and generally refers to harm caused by accidents, falls, hits and weapons. Injuries can be minor as well as life-threatening which can happen at work or play, indoors or outdoors, driving a car, or walking across the street. Some common injuries are bruises, burns, dislocations, fractures, sprains and strains.
Be it a wound or injury, pain is a universal experience. Nearly one-third of people will experience chronic pain at some point in their lives. Chronic pain affects millions of people irrespective of age and gender, and also costs billions of rupees each year in treatment, disability compensation and lost productivity. Yet, only an estimated one in ten Indians with chronic pain receives proper treatment.
Cerebra’s cutting-edge and revolutionary cell regeneration technology, Cerebra PhotoBioStim (CPBS), directly stimulates affected areas and penetrates deeply into tissue, thus accelerating cellular reproduction and growth. This promotes wound healing and soft tissue repair, reduces inflammation and relieves pain. Here is how CPBS technology helps eradicate pain, and dramatically heal wounds and injuries:
