Hirudotherapy is an effective treatment for compartment syndrome.
Staying active is important but how with Compartment Syndrome?
Compartment Syndrome is a painful and dangerous condition caused by pressure build-up from internal bleeding or swelling of tissues.
The pressure decreases blood flow, depriving muscles and nerves of required nourishment.
Symptoms may include severe pain, sensation of pins and needles and weakness in the affected area.
Leech Therapy the natural remedy for compartment syndrome
Leeches are an ancient medical remedy that has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments. They're not just effective at relieving pain and inflammation, but they also help rehydrate fascia tissue in order to reduce pressure on muscles which will alleviate muscle spasms or cramps!
Fascia has 6-10 more nerve receptors than the muscles themselves making it very painful when someone has to deal with compartment syndrome.
The main advantage of using Leech Therapy is that it can penetrate deep enough to exert significant effects to relax the whole compartments.
Leech therapy can also be an effective way of preventing symptoms of compartment syndrome - especially in those who suffer from median nerve damage due to forearm compartments.
Leech therapy has many benefits and one of those benefits is reducing pressure.
