O.A is one of the leading causes of pain and disability with approximately 8 million affected by O.A in the U.K and 100 million in the USA.
There is an opportunity to help patients more by reducing pain and improving function with INDIBA. Often the pain is reduced with medication and exercise alone. However, an increasing number of patients don’t want to take long term pain medication and they are trapped in a cycle of reducing medication and increasing pain, leading to a reduction in activity. With co-morbidities increasing, surgeons are less likely to operate leaving a large number of patients with chronic pain and a deteriorating condition.
Learn how INDIBA, a non-invasive, pain-free radiofrequency treatment combined with exercise can give your patients back their quality of life and give your practice a great reputation. Find out how adding INDIBA to your treatment package in Knee O.A could reduce patient’s pain by up to 66% and improve their function on the WOMAC score by up to 45%.
