For an accurate diagnosis of your pain or injury it is suggested you see your local Chiropractor, Physiotherapist or Sports Therapist. A thorough investigation is needed first to determine all the anatomical, biomechanical and ergonomic abnormalities associated with your individual condition.


Note: It is recommended for best results the Tända Professional Restore light therapy treatment be applied first before any other modality or before stretching, massaging or exercising.


RECOMMENED AT HOME TREATMENT FOR ACUTE CONDITIONS
What is an acute Injury? Acute injuries occur suddenly during activity. Signs of an acute injury include:

  • sudden, severe pain
  • swelling
  • inability to place weight on a lower limb
  • extreme tenderness in an upper limb
  • inability to move a joint through full range of motion

Treating with Tända Professional Restore:

  • One treatment administered 2 – 3 times per day when your injury is in the acute phase.
  • Allow a few hours between treatments.
  • As acute symptoms subside reduce to daily treatments.
  • If symptoms are less intense, apply Tända Professional Restore once daily until you see a 50% improvement and then reduce to 2 – 3 times per week.

RECOMMENED AT HOME TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC CONDITIONS
What is a chronic Injury? Chronic injuries usually result from overusing one area of the body while playing a sport or exercising over a long period. Signs of a chronic injury include:

  • pain when performing activities
  • a dull ache when at rest
  • swelling

What injuries are considered acute vs. chronic? Types of acute injuries include:

  • If symptoms are intense follow same guidelines as for acute cases.
  • If symptoms are less intense, apply Tända Professional Restore once daily until a 50% improvement and then 2 – 3 times per week.

What injuries are considered acute vs. chronic?
Types of acute injuries include:

  • Muscle pulls
  • Ligament sprains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Contusions (bruises)

Types of chronic injuries include:

  • Muscle pulls
  • Ligament sprains
  • Fractures

Whether an injury is acute or chronic, there is never a good reason to try to "work through" the pain of an injury. When you have pain from a particular movement or activity, STOP! Continuing the activity only causes further harm.

Some injuries require prompt medical attention, while others can be self-treated.

When To Seek Medical Treatment

You should call a health professional if:

  • The injury causes severe pain, swelling, or numbness
  • You can't tolerate weight on the area
  • Pain or dull ache of an old injury is accompanied by increased swelling or joint abnormality or instability

If you don't have any of the above symptoms, it's probably safe to treat the injury at home, at least at first. If pain or other symptoms worsen, it's best to check with your doctor.
