A Drug-free Medical Device to Reduce Pain & Inflammation - ActiPatch®

Pain and my body go hand in hand. It is as though there is some close connection between myself and pain. If it is not migraine, then it is sciatica. If not these two then rheumatic pain which affects my hands, wrists and feet. And then there is dysmenorrhoea and heartburn. I would be lucky if I could say that I have had a totally pain-free day. Ever since I was diagnosed with Palindromic Rheumatism I have also had to put up with overall fatigue and body pain. So, obviously if there is any product that claims to offer pain relief, I am ready to give it a go.

For a while now my wrists have been a problem area - the pain though not persistent is unmanageable when it does it strike. I was recently sent the ActiPatch® Advanced Long-Lasting Pain Relief and I was keen to try it when I had a wrist pain. But instead I ended up trying it first during an episode of severe neck pain. ActiPatch® is an award winning drug-free micro medical device that uses Electromagnetic Pulse Therapy to reduce pain and inflammation.

How does ActiPatch® work?
According to the ActiPatch® website "Blood flow in the body is regulated by electrical signals that travel along nerves. The ActiPatch® modifies these nerve signals, providing pain relief by enhancing blood flow which reduces inflammation and restores the injured tissue to a healthy state. You will not feel heat, vibration or any type of sensation using the ActiPatch®. There are no side effects affiliated with this technology making it the ideal method over common pain relief medications."

ActiPatch® comes as three variants targeting different areas in the body:
- Back Pain
- Knee Pain and
- Muscle and Joint Pain

I received the ActiPatch® Muscle & Joint Pain Relief which can be used on multiple locations on ones body to reduce chronic and acute pain and inflammation including muscle & joint soreness, strains & sprains, neck & shoulder pain, hip pain and much more. The ActiPatch® Muscle & Joint Pain Relief kit contains: one ActiPatch® and sixty adhesive strips.


Using ActiPatch® is very easy. First you activate the device by peeling off the white adhesive tab from the main module. Once you do this, you will notice a silver coloured push button. Push this button and hold it down for a few seconds. Once the device is activated you will see a green LED light on the other side of the device. Now use the adhesive strips provided to fasten the ActiPatch® directly over the area of pain. You can wear the ActiPatch® continuously until the pain reduces or for a minimum of eight hours daily. To deactivate the device press the silver button and hold it down again and the green LED light will turn off.





Does it work?
Yes, it does. The ActiPatch® does not offer instant pain relief. It takes a while and the pain reduces gradually. In my case, after 6-7 hours of using the ActiPatch® my neck pain reduced considerably and that too without the use of pain killers. I continued to wear the patch and the neck pain was gone for good in 2 days time and hasn't come back since. I was quite happy because even if I had used painkillers the pain would normally take around 3-4 days to subside. The only problem I had was that the adhesive strip caused rashes on my skin. Probably the adhesive irritated  my skin. So, the next time I used ActiPatch®, I used my regular waterproof plaster and the problem was solved. The patch fits best on large areas of skin like the back, shoulder etc. For the neck area I had to use more than 2 plasters to hold it in place. Another point to note is that the ActiPatch® doesn't generate heat while in use. So essentially when it is working you will feel nothing - no movement, no vibration, no heat. It does its work quietly.

I am glad that I have found a way to reduce my usage and dependence on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory products such as ibuprofen and aspirin as these tend to worsen my GERD. Although I still use painkillers(they have their place in my life) I feel good that I am lessening my reliance on them. If you suffer from joint pains, back ache or any kind of arthritic pain, you can give ActiPatch® a try. It is non-medicinal and doesn't cause any side effects.
