Gradient Medical, LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode.
Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 14, 2008 -- The producers of The Economic Report are pleased to announce that Gradient Medical, LLC will be featured in an upcoming episode as part of the show's Pain Management series on Tomorrow's Health Solutions Today.
Pain is a national public healthcare crisis. It is estimated that 76.2 million Americans suffer from chronic pain with lower back pain being the most common. It affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. The annual cost of chronic pain takes a massive toll on the United States economy. Approximately $100 billion is lost due to healthcare expenses, lost income and lost productivity.
While there is medical technology and knowledge available to relieve or greatly reduce most pain, chronic sufferers have difficulty finding doctors who have the tools to treat their pain. Many healthcare practitioners are unable to treat pain aggressively due to a therapeutic void, i.e. ready access to simple patient-friendly, efficacious, non-drug or non-surgical alternatives.
This lack of effective professional assistance in everyday pain management has led many people to seek alternative medicine practices to help relieve their pain. One of the most tried alternatives is magnetic therapy. Tennessee-based Gradient Medical, LLC is a pioneer in magnet therapy with its product QuadraBloc™. The research on QuadraBloc™ technology began in the early 1990s under a privately-funded research grant from the inventor in the Department of Neurology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.
QuadraBloc™ works by placing the steep field gradient of four rare earth magnets, arranged in alternating polarity, directly over the offending nerve(s) in order to block the firing of the action potentials of these nerves. QuadraBloc™ users can often gain relief in a very short time, without harmful pharmacological side effects or invasive surgery.
"QuadraBloc™ offers a simple, low cost, first line of treatment alternative with real therapeutic benefits for a number of everyday aches and pains," said John Townsend, founder and president of Gradient Medical, LLC.
