Drug Free Back Pain Relief: ActiPatch Review

Do you suffer from back pain and want drug free relief? How about trying a product that not only gives you relief but also aids in healing your issue? I’ve suffered from back pain off and on as a mom. When my kids were younger and I was carrying them around all day, my back got really, really bad. I was always at the chiropractor or using a heating pad. I wish I had heard of ActiPatch Healing Pain Relief back then.

Hands on Review of ActiPatch

First, let’s understand what ActiPatch is and isn’t. I’m use to patches with heat that last up to 6 hours, if you are lucky. I’ve used these for back pain and menstrual cramps. They are ok in the winter but not an option during warmer weather! Those patches are a one-time use product. ActiPatch is not a heating pad or heating device.

ActiPatch is a safe and continuous electromagnetic therapy patch that restores damaged cells.  Simply, it reduces inflammation and pain with low-level energy pulses to the source of injury. They have a whole product line for back pain, menstrual cramps, heel pain, wrist pain, and knee pain. The ActiPatch delivers pain relief not just for a few hours or a day, but for 720 hours! It is safe for continuous use for 30 days.

How does ActiPatch work (That PEMF thing)?

When you get injured, the cell’s electrical charge is diminished, causing normal cell functions to shut down. When this happens, the cells become inflamed, resulting in pain.

ActiPatch™ induces a mild electrical current into cells at a frequency that recharges the cell, stops the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, and re-establishes normal cell interaction.  As a result, your body begins to heal faster and you experience less pain, swelling, and bruising.  This technology is called PEMF, or, Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency.

This type of therapy is already used in the orthopedics, sports and physical medicine, plastic surgery, and chronic wound care  industries.

How do you wear ActiPatch?

Activate the electronic module by pulling tab from the unit. (Keep this to turn it off when done with the session.) Slip the electronic module back into the pocket.

Simply put the wrap on and secure it with the velcro straps. Place the electronic module at the point of pain. For best results, wear for minimum of 6-8 hours. The wrap hides easily under your shirt and is not noticeable.

Results with ActiPatch

After putting the ActiPatch on, I actually forgot about it. With the heating pads, you are always conscious of it because of the heat. I wore the ActiPatch for several hours and then realized that my pain was gone!  To be honest, I was surprised that it worked because I couldn’t “feel” anything happening.

UPDATE: November 2011- I still have and use the actipatch product.  I’ve found it useful for pains and swelling not on my back as well.  Currently, my husband is using one nightly to manage a groin muscle issue.  We are an actipatch family!  Our families think we’re crazy, but, it really works!

    HealFast® Therapy is a drug-free therapy for horses, cats and dogs that reduces swelling and pain while it speeds healing of muscle and tendon injuries, sores and incisions. Sounds like a great product.

    Applied to an injury, ActiPatch quickly relieves edema, inflammation and pain, providing patient comfort while reducing bruising and speeding up the onset of natural healing.

    They also have them for wrists, knees, heels, tennis elbow. I could use one of each.
    It seems they are not sold in the US.
