Unpacking Reparel’s fabric choices– this is extremely important!
Reparel’s healing technology lies in its distinctive bioactive fabric, and there are two different compositions to choose from. The fabric composition you need, is determined by whether your pain is chronic or acute.
Typically, when pain lasts for more than 3-6 months, it is likely to be labeled as chronic pain. It differs from the usual cause-and-effect pattern of acute pain. Chronic pain continues long after you recover from an injury or illness, and sometimes it even happens for no obvious reason. A few examples of chronic pain are arthritis, osteoporosis, bursitis, and nerve damage.
Acute pain is the most common. It is your body’s natural protection system – a warning to prevent further harm. It usually comes on suddenly and goes away slowly throughout the healing process. Acute pain also comes with an expectation that healing will occur within a specific time and will not go on forever. Some of the most common causes are sprains, ligament tears, broken bones, surgery, etc.
