Drug-free pain relief with the new ActiPatch

Around one third of us suffer from chronic pain, particularly in the back, knees, shoulders and neck. And more than eight out of 10 resort to over-the-counter medication, risking various side effects. So is there a drug-free way to eliminate pain?

After suffering a broken ankle which our tester initially thought was a sprain, tried out ActiPatch electromagnetic pulse therapy kit which has just gone on sale at Boots.

ActiPatch MultiPurpose Box - Boots UK.jpg (Copy)ActiPatch® is an award-winning drug-free micro medical device which uses Electromagnetic Pulse Therapy to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate healing. And its not just the manufacturers saying so – its effectiveness has been clinically proven in eight medically published trials and has been shown to treat back, neck, knee, hip, heel, tennis elbow, wrist and essentially any musculoskeletal pain on the body  better and 100% safer than over-the-counter drugs.

How ActiPatch® Therapy Works
Blood flow to the body is regulated by electrical signals that travel along the nerves. ActiPatch® Therapy modifies these nerve signals, providing pain relief by enhancing blood flow, which reduces inflammation, accelerates healing and results in injured tissue being restored to a healthy state.

Electromagnetic Pulse Therapy has been used in a clinical setting by doctors and physiotherapists for several decades. Advances in microelectronic technology have now made it possible to deliver its benefits in a small, convenient and economical ActiPatch® device for personal extended use.

Each product provides 720 hours of low level, safe electromagnetic pulses to provide pain relief therapy at the source. Simply place the ActiPatch® device into position, secure in place, either using the belt for back pain or tape for shoulder or knee usage and switch it on via the on/off button. It’s totally sensation-free – so the only thing you’ll feel is relief!

Ideally use ActiPatch® at night as best results are achieved after constant use for six hours. Also it is known that the body uses sleep time for recovery, therefore using ActiPatch while sleeping will deliver optimal results.

Our tester strapped the device to her ankle overnight – it immediately gave some main relief and also helped reduce the swelling.

ActiPatch® is available at Boots online at www.boots.com and in selective stores nationwide and costs only £19.99 for up to 720 hours of relief.”
