HealthSonix to Conduct Clinical Trials with ZingiberRx for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

News source: Business Wire

HealthSonix, Inc. (OTC:HSXI)(FWB:H7S) today announced that it has strong evidence that ZingiberRx Joint and Muscle Cream with ginger oil can provide pain relief for people with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also referred to as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).

The main symptom of CRPS is intense chronic pain, often described as 'burning' pain. Additional signs and symptoms include localized swelling; changes in skin temperature and color; joint stiffness; muscle spasms, weakness and loss (atrophy); and decreased range of motion.

"We have been testing ZingiberRx with a CRPS group and the on-going positive feedback we get from the participants has led to the decision to conduct a formal scientific study for this condition," said Dieter D. Doederlein, Vice President Corporate Development for HealthSonix.

"Members of our St Catharines CRPS support group had excellent outcomes from the ZingiberRx samples you provided. You definitely should consider a clinical trial," said Helen Small, President of PARC, a national support group that is Promoting Awareness of RSD and CRPS in Canada.

"According to the Mayo Clinic, many cases of complex regional pain syndrome occur after a forceful trauma to an arm or a leg, as a result of motor vehicle accidents, shrapnel blasts and other traumas - such as surgery, heart attacks, infections, fractures and sprained ankles. This could open up a whole new market for ZingiberRx," added Doederlein.
