According to the CDC, half of persons living until age 85 years will develop shingles.
What is shingles?
Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash.
How does someone get shingles?
This virus is the same that causes chickenpox, with the difference that only people who recovered from chickenpox may develop shingles. After years of being inactive in the body, the virus can become active again. Why this happens is not known, but it seems that people with a weakened immune system are more susceptible than others.
Unfortunately shingles cannot be cured, however, Remobility uses a very effective pain therapy to provide relief for shingles sufferers. This drug-free therapy is not widely used in the United States, but Roel has had a very high success rate with treatment of shingles pain in Europe, South America and the U.S. He has successfully treated patients of all ages, including veterans returning from combat and suffering PHN.
