Pain Management in the Elderly

Pain Management in the Elderly

Pain management in the elderly is often a challenge for families and caregivers.  The elderly are more sensitive to pain and can experience pain for longer periods of time than younger people. As people age, their pain threshold also declines.  Pain medications may also increase the risk of falls and accidents, and may not always be effective.
Pain management can be a crucial part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
For those who suffer from aching joints, arthritis and other chronic pain, a heat pad can be a great way to find relief. A heating pad can be used to stimulate circulation and provide temporary pain relief, as it typically helps muscles relax and reduces inflammation. This can be a great option for those who are experiencing chronic pain, or those who are experiencing pain from flare-ups with muscle spasms, back pain, sciatica, neck pain and more. Moist heat pads provide superior pain relief to standard dry heat pads, as moist heat can penetrate muscles and joints more deeply than dry heat.
The Biothermored Moist Heat Pad is a registered medical product in Australia, used and recommended by physiotherapists and used by many elderly people at home and in aged care facilities to manage their pain. Biothermored Moist Heat Pads are a safe, natural and effective way to help manage pain in the older population.
