Sitting pain is a common condition in several patient groups. Pain when sitting results from the loss of fat (lipoatrophy) and muscle (sarcopenia) in the buttocks and thighs and occurs as a normal part of aging. This condition is accelerated and worsened in certain disease conditions such as cancer and long term HIV treatment and AIDS. Approximately 50% of seniors and cancer patients and 60% of long term HIV treated patients have varying degrees of sitting pain.
The consequences of these types of pain while sitting are giving up many daily activities which contribute to the quality of life.
SitRelief Shorts were evaluated in a clinical trial conducted by physicians and resulted in significant improvement in sitting pain and Quality of Life. This product had a dramatic impact on patient lives.
We encourage you to ask your lipoatrophy patients about sitting pain. In one of our study sites, the physician was unaware of the problem but the receptionist knew because the patients would not sit on hard chairs in the waiting room. You can dramatically affect the Quality of Life for your patients with lipoatrophy and sitting pain by telling them about SitRelief Shorts and this web site, www.sitrelief.com.
