Cathleen Kearns of the Osteopathic Research Center at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas has co-authored a comparative study on osteopathic treatment versus ultrasound therapy, and backs Dr. Allen’s Devices – named after its developer, Dr. Simon Allen – as a more effective, cost-efficient and long-acting method to address low back pain.
According to PR Web:
450 people in the study with chronic low back pain who received osteopath treatment were more likely to be satisfied with its results than were their counterparts who received ultrasound therapy. “The main message from this research study is that hands-on treatment provided by an osteopathic physician is a viable option that can reduce pain and prescription-drug use,” says the author Cathleen Kearns.
“People who suffer from chronic low back pain are often treated with prescription drugs that are not always effective in controlling chronic low back pain, that may require higher doses over time and that have serious side effects,” she adds.
Dr. Allen calls the principle behind his device “thermobalancing therapy,” and explains that when applied directly over the affected area, improves the condition of intervertebral discs and reduces an inflammation of the Sciatic nerve. The device costs a mere $150 – only a fraction of the total cost of the usual hundreds of dollars the average American would spend on medication and repetitive ultrasound treatments.
