I was sent Actipatch for muscle and joint pain relief. ActiPatch® is a new and clinically proven
drug-free technology in the fight against chronic muscle and joint pain.
The Actipatch works by helping blood flow in the body regulate 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 wont feel heat with the Actipatch but you will feel the low level energy that is gently pulsed into the cells to heal damaged tissue. It should start working after about 2 -3 hours and should decrease your pain for around 8 – 24 hours if you keep the Actipatch on.
There is a warning on the pack that the Actipatch should not be used by women who are pregnant or think they are pregnant. It’s easy to apply and they tell you to place it directly over the source of pain, They also have a back wrap to keep it in place and a knee wrap.
As most of my readers know I suffer from chronic low back and neck pain as well as Fibromyalgia so I decided to try the back wrap with the Actipatch placed underneath it. Although I definitely felt some pain relief I was unable to lower my pain medication but a week later my right knee started to play up so I decided I would try the patch with the adhesives ad place it on the top of my knee. After only a couple of hours the pain went away completely, and so far has not come back again.
The Actipatch has to be ideal for any type of muscle or joint pain. On their website The Fibromyalgia Support Group undertook a chronic pain survey and concluded that ActiPatch®’s innovative technology “is an invaluable new pain therapy that can greatly benefit the majority of Fibromyalgia sufferers, helping them effectively and safely self-manage their pain and improve quality of life²”. From this, 79% of responders reported a reduction in their pain having used ActiPatch®.
