There are many different causes of pain. A doctor should be consulted if pain occurs suddenly and unexpectedly or persists for a long time. Compression pain caused by swelling after an injury or operation can be relieved by stimulating the activity of the lymphatic system. This removes harmful inflammatory agents and fluid-collecting protein from the body. Pain caused by bruising (contusions) can be treated effectively with PhysioTouch or LymphaTouch if the treatment is administered within 48 hours of injury. Treatment in the acute phase will produce the best results.

The PhysioTouch and LymphaTouch treatment method can be used to treat many different pain conditions. Good pain-relief outcomes have been achieved in the treatment of neuropathic pain, MS patients, and fibromyalgia patients, for example. Conditions of pain and tension have been alleviated considerably in patients with spinal cord damage. Persistent pain such as back pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, joint pain and tendon pain can be treated locally or by concentrating on fascial structures and trigger points.
