How can ActiPatch® relieve my pain?
When an injury occurs, cells separate and swelling starts to develop in the injured tissues which causes pain. Also, chemical signals are released by cells in the injury site activating nerves and causing an electrical impulse which signals pain in the injured tissue. Therefore, a reduction in tissue swelling “inflammation” reduces pain and allows injuries to heal.
ActiPatch® accelerates injury recovery by increasing blood flow and reducing swelling. ActiPatch® delivers a safe form of energy to the injured cells, which is used by the cells to recover and reduce inflammation. The application of this extended treatment device therefore results in a decrease in pain and accelerated tissue repair.
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.
You don’t just feel better ... You are better.
The ActiPatch® can be used for many types of pain including treating back pain, sore necks, knees, tennis elbow, heels, wrist pain and much more.

Here are some tips if you’re going to start exercising:
- Start slowly and build up gradually. Give yourself plenty of time to warm up and cool down with easy walking or gentle stretching. Then speed up to a pace you can continue for five to 10 minutes without getting overly tired. As your stamina improves, gradually increase the amount of time you exercise. Work your way up to 30 to 60 minutes of exercise most days of the week.
- Break things up if you have to. You don't have to do all your exercise at one time. Shorter but more-frequent sessions have aerobic benefits, too. Fifteen minutes of exercise a couple of times a day may fit into your schedule better than a single 30-minute session.
- Be creative. Maybe your workout routine includes various activities, such as walking, bicycling or rowing. But don't stop there. Take a weekend hike with your family or spend an evening ballroom dancing.
- Listen to your body. If you feel pain, shortness of breath, dizziness or nausea, take a break. You may be pushing yourself too hard.
- Be flexible. If you're not feeling good, give yourself permission to take a day or two off.
- Consider your fitness goals. Are you starting a fitness program to help lose weight? Or do you have another motivation, such as preparing for a marathon? Having clear goals can help you gauge your progress.
- Create a balanced routine. Most adults should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity — or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity — a week. Adults also need two or more days of strength training a week.
- Go at your own pace. If you're just beginning to exercise, start cautiously and progress slowly. If you have an injury or a medical condition, consult your doctor or a physical therapist for help designing a fitness program that gradually improves your range of motion, strength and endurance.
- Build activity into your daily routine. Finding time to exercise can be a challenge. To make it easier, schedule time to exercise as you would any other appointment. Plan to watch your favorite show while walking on the treadmill, or read while riding a stationary bike.
- Plan to include different activities. Different activities (cross-training) can keep exercise boredom at bay. Cross-training also reduces your chances of injuring or overusing one specific muscle or joint. Plan to alternate among activities that emphasize different parts of your body, such as walking, swimming and strength training.
- Allow time for recovery. Many people start exercising with frenzied zeal — working out too long or too intensely — and give up when their muscles and joints become sore or injured. Plan time between sessions for your body to rest and recover.
- Put it on paper. A written plan may encourage you to stay on track.
