We are always told that our health is the most important thing in life, more so than money
or any of the objects and material possessions that we desire.
It could be that when we are young we take this statement for granted, or disregard it as a
throw away comment, a cliché as such.
Unfortunately, it can sometimes take a personal injury, or the ill health of someone close to
you to fully understand the truth behind this statement.

Of course, there are some instances that are unavoidable, such as injuries and accidents.
When occurrences such as these take place, finding the most effective return from injury and
relieving pain is a priority.
Technology now plays an important role in rehabilitation and pain management.
Hospitals, doctor’s surgeries and physiotherapists all use state of the art technology to identify
problems and navigate the road to recovery.
In recent years there has been a sharp increase in “apps” which allow pain sufferers, and those
rehabilitating from injury, to work on their pain at home.
By consulting with your doctor regarding the use of the app, an effective strategy can be
established on the best way to manage pain or rehabilitate from your home.
Apps can contain detailed anatomical diagrams that help the sufferer better understand their
pain and the areas to target to make a successful recovery.
Other apps enable the user to document their pain and exercises, and this data can then be
integrated with the doctor’s data.
There’s An App for That!
In this infographic I have illustrated various different apps for pain management, injury
rehabilitation and memory impairment.
They are cost effective and give the sufferer piece of mind that they are performing the correct
Note: All apps must be used under strict medical supervision.
