Stress

Stress not only has a psycological impact, but can also have a physical impact on your body. Muscle tension is almost a reflex reaction to stress—the body’s way of guarding against injury and pain. With sudden onset stress, the muscles tense up all at once, and then release their tension when the stress passes. Chronic stress may cause the muscles in the body to be in a more or less constant state of guardedness. Both tension-type headache and migraine headache are associated with chronic muscle tension in the area of the shoulders, neck and head.

 

Musculoskeletal pain in the low back and upper extremities has also been linked to stress. Relaxation techniques, stretching and other stress-relieving activities and therapies can effectively reduce muscle tension, decrease the incidence of certain stress-related disorders, such as headache, and increase a sense of well-being. VibraCool® is a great to reduce the physical effects of stress. VibraCool®‘s unique mechanical stimulation (M-stim(tm)) technology loosens muscles and reduces muscle tension. VibraCool® is FDA cleared to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points, restricted motion and muscle tension.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain and injuries may occur can be caused by many factors, including manual labor, falls, playing sports, overuse or repetitive motion, and even sleeping on your side. Conditions such as arthritis, torn cartelidge or rotator cuffs, pinched nerves, or frozen shoulder may also cause pain. The most common shoulder injuries include rotator cuff tendinitis and impengment syndrome. Also, as we grow older, especially for those 60+ years of age, shoulder problems become common due to degeneration of the surrounding soft tissue. Mechanical stimulation with VibraCool® can provide pain relief on contact for joint pain or pain caused by restricted motion, muscle tension or spasm.

Restricted Muscles

Restricted range of motion and muscle tension are common painful conditions that can be caused by activities, injuries, or medical conditions. These medical conditions may include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cerebral palsy, or sepsis of the joint. Other causes of restricted range of motion include: inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the joint, or joint swelling, muscle stiffness, pain, joint dislocation, or fractures in various areas of the body.

 

VibraCool® is FDA cleared to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points, restricted motion and muscle tension. It’s great for pre-weight lifting warm up and post-exercise soreness.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot/heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

 

Although anyone may experience plantar fasciitis, it is most common among people between the ages of 40 and 60. Certain types of exercise and activities that place a lot of stress on your heel and attached tissue — such as long-distance running, ballet dancing and aerobic dance — can contribute to the onset of plantar fasciitis. Foot mechanics may be another factor that can lead to plantar fasciitis. Flat feet, a high arch or even an abnormal pattern of walking can affect the way weight is distributed when you’re standing and can put added stress on the plantar fascia.

 

Factory workers, health care workers, teachers and others who spend most of their work hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can damage the plantar fascia.

 

People with occupations that keep you on your feet frequently experience this type of foot pain. Factory workers, health care workers, teachers and others who spend most of their work hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can damage the plantar fascia. Most people who have plantar fasciitis recover in several months with conservative treatment, including resting, icing the painful area and stretching.

 

Other painful foot conditions include gout, plantar wart pain, bunion pain, and heel spur pain. VibraCool® provides wearable pain relief, with mechanical stimulation (M-stim) technology that can block pain on contact and can be used during icing and stretching exercises. VibraCool® Plantar’s vibration unit, with it’s dual-curve design, fits into the arch of the foot. It’s velcro strap and specially-designed ice packs fit comfortably on the foot, and secure the vibration unit in place.

 

For Plantar Fasciitis

  • Prepare unit: Freeze ice packs. Ice packs must be solid for use.
  • Insert hands-free strap through slot. Thread ice pack on top of the curved surface of the VibraCool®. Place foot on top of ice pack and attach unit to foot with the hands-free strap.
  • Press switch to “on” and leave in place until ice pack melts (8-10 minutes).
  • Repeat if desired. Unit will vibrate until the switch is turned off.

 

For Gout, Bunions, Other Foot Pain

  • Prepare unit: Freeze ice packs. Ice packs must be solid for use. insert hands-free strap through slot. Thread ice pack below the curved surface of the VibraCool®. Place ice pack side where pain is and attach unit with the hands-free strap.
  • Press switch to “on” and leave in place until ice pack melts (8-10 minutes).
  • Repeat if desired. Unit will vibrate until the switch is turned off.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a type of care that aims to relieve pain and help people function, move or recover from injuries or surgery. It can help people of all ages treat a variety of help problems. Physical therapy treatment is provided by a physical therapist, who is a licensed health professional who has specific graduate training in physical therapy. They are commonly referred to as PTs or physiotherapists. They work with your doctor to guide treatments that will help you feel better and get back to full function or the abilit to do everyday tasks. This includes exercises and other treatments, such as stretches, massage, dry needling, heat or cold therapy,or helping you learn to use gadgets that may provide pain relief, help you move, or stay balanced. Physical therapists may also prescribe exercises for you to do at home to build strength, stabilize your core muscles, or improve range of motion for your shoulders or knees. Sometimes these exercises may be challenging due to existing pain or may result in temporary muscle soreness. VibraCool® is unique, portable, wearable device that leverages mechanical stimulation (M-stim) to reduce pain on contact, while increasing blood flow and improving mobility. VibraCool®‘s M-stim uses vibration to vasodilate, or increase blood flow, mechanically separate muscle fibers to reduce delayed onsite muscle soreness (DOMS), and reduce spasm.

 

VibraCool® can be used before physical therapy to increase blood flow and mobility, during treatment to relieve pain and facilitate muscle stretch, and after physical therapy when the mechanical stimulation and ice can reduce pain and inflammation. VibraCool can be used for rehabilitation exercises and pain relief in the PT clinic, on the athletic field, at work, or at home, making home therapy compliance easy!

Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common complaint. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture — whether it’s leaning over your computer or mobile phone, driving or hunching over your workbench. It may be caused by prolonged straining (looking up or down), sleeping in an uncomfortable position, or stress. Common injuries from falls or car accidents may cause neck pain from whiplash, pinched nerves, disc herniations, or swollen joints. Certain diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, meningitis or cancer, can also cause neck pain. Occipital neuralgia is another conditon that can cause intense pain that feels like a sharp, jabbing, electric shock in the back of the head and neck. Rest and time can help the healing process of minor injuries. Symptoms of neck pain may include stiffness, muscle spasms, muscle tightness, or even headaches. Treating the pain with drugs is not always a good option. Opioids, NSAIDs, and even acetaminophen may cause adverse health reactions. The mechanical stimulation (m-stim) technology of VibraCool® can block pain and help speed recovery and the healing process.

 

For Neck Pain
VibraCool® Flex is wearable pain relief that you can customize with heat or cold for the type of pain relief you need. Simply put the VibraCool® vibration unit into neoprene pocket 2. Hold vibration unit positioned over the area of pain on your neck. You may also lean against the unit while laying on a bed or leaning against a chair back. 3. Activate vibration by turning on the button on top of unit. 4. To add anti-inflammatory ice: Prepare unit: Freeze ice packs. Ice packs must be solid for use. Place frozen ice pack underneath the strap prior to placing on pain. Ice will remain frozen for 20 minutes. 5. To add muscle-relaxing heat: Click the metal plate within the heat pack. It may take a few clicks to activate. Place heat pack underneath strap prior to placing on pain. We recommend using VibraCool® 2-3x a day for 3-5 days while you hurt.

 

For Headaches
Fo headaches due to occipital neuralgia, follow the instructions above. Position the VibraCool® Flex vibration unit near the base of the back of the head, toward the top of the neck. You may also use the VibraCool® Extended unit /VibraCool® Extended strap by wrapping the strap around the head to hold the unit in place. If your headache is sensitive to the sound of vibration, you may use the strap with the ice pack or heat pack to relieve pain and relax neck muscles.

Myofascial

Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder. Pressure on sensitive points in the muscles (trigger points) causes referred pain in seemingly unrelated parts of the body. Myofascial pain syndrome typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively. The pain can be made worse with activity or stress.Treating pain with drugs is not always a good option. Opioids, NSAIDs, and even acetaminophen may cause adverse health reactions. VibraCool® is FDA cleared to treat myofascial pain caused by trigger points, restricted motion and muscle tension.

 

When treating myofascial pain syndome, physicians may recommend needle procedures, such as trigger point injections and dry needling. For trigger point injections, a a numbing agent or a steroid is injected into into a trigger point to help relieve pain. For dry needling, a small,think needle is inserted into several places in and around the trigger point to break up the muscle tension. Proven to reduce needle pain, Buzzy® can improve the patient experience with these needle procedures.

 

For Myofascial Pain
Put VibraCool® vibration unit into neoprene pouch on compression strap (VibraCool® Extended or Easy Fit) or pocket for Flex. 2. Secure snugly with vibration unit over the area of pain. 3. Activate vibration by switching the toggle switch. 4. To add anti-inflammatory ice: Prepare unit: Freeze ice packs. Ice packs must be solid for use. Place frozen ice pack underneath the strap prior to placing on pain. Ice will remain frozen for 10-20 minutes. 5. To add muscle-relaxing heat: Click the metal plate within the heat pack. It may take a few clicks to activate. Place heat pack underneath strap prior to placing on pain. If the area is constantly aching, leave vibration going as long as necessary. VibraCool® can be left on during any stretching exercises to loosen muscles. Great for pre-weight lifting warm up and post-exercise soreness. For optimal relief and recovery, use VibraCool® for 20 minutes, 2-3x a day until you no longer hurt.

 

For trigger point injections
Pain control is maximized by placing Buzzy® with ice pack on the site of injection, leaving in place 30 – 60 seconds. The ice wings cool and numb the area and the vibration desensitize the area. Next, move Buzzy® just proximal (toward the head or spine) during the shot. When injections burn, the pain can be relieved by rubbing Buzzy®’s cold and vibration over the area after the medicine is administered. There is no risk of shrinking blood vessels

 

For dry needling
Pain control is maximized by placing Buzzy® with ice pack and vibration on the site of dry needling, leaving in place 30 – 60 seconds. The ice wings cool and numb the area and the vibration desensitizes the area. Next, move Buzzy® just proximal (toward the head or spine) during the dry needling treatment. After treatment, rub Buzzy® with fresh, frozen ice wing and vibration, over the site of dry needling to relieve post-procedure soreness.

Knee Pain

Knee pain is one of the most common types of pain and may occur in and around the knee joint. Pain can range from mild to debilitating. It may be caused by many factors, including heavy physical activity, lack of use, injuries such as sprains or strains, sitting in a constrained area, or sitting on knees for a prolonged period. Common sports-related knee injuries include ACL strains/tears, meniscal injuries, patella-femoral syndrome, or iliotibial (IT) band pain. Arthritis, gout, infections, and recovery from knee surgery are other painful conditions.

 

Treating pain with drugs is not always a good option. Opioids, NSAIDs, and even acetaminophen may cause adverse health reactions. Whether your knee pain is related to a medical condition, injury, or everyday aches and pains from life, VibraCool®‘s wearable, comfortable mechanical stimulation is safe and easy to use, providing pain relief on contact while speeding the healing process.

 

Knee pain is one of the most common types of pain and can range from mild to debilitating.

 

For knee pain
Put VibraCool® vibration unit into neoprene pouch on compression strap. 2. Secure snugly with vibration unit over the area of pain. 3. Activate vibration by switching the toggle switch. 4. To add anti-inflammatory ice: Prepare unit: Freeze ice packs. Ice packs must be solid for use. Place frozen ice pack underneath the strap prior to placing on pain. Ice will remain frozen for 20 minutes. For optimal relief and recovery, use VibraCool® for 20 minutes, 2-3x a day until you no longer hurt.

 

For IT band pain
For IT band pain, position VibraCool® above the knee joint, toward the outer aspect of the knee joint.

 

For jumper’s knee
For jumper’s knee, position the VibraCool® unit below the knee cap.

 

For post-surgerical knee pain
Your physician or physical therapist will instruct you to begin a cryotherapy, or icing protocol, as early as the day of your surgery. Use VibraCool® as instructed for your recommended icing protocol. Use ice as often as every 2 hours. You may use the vibration unit alone for mechanical stimulation as often as you would like, for as long as you would like, to provide ongoing pain relief. Place ice pack directly on area of pain, or just above and further up the thigh if it provides better pain relief.

 

Place VibraCool® over the ice pack. Wrap the strap around and secure to itself with the Velcro® fastener at the end of the strap. VibraCool® may be used on top of bandages.

 

For Allergy Testing

Allergy testing may be uncomfortable and cause itching. To relieve the itching from allergy testing, place Buzzy® “Between the brain and the pain”. (See “Buzzy® Placement”.) For testing on the arm, place Buzzy® closer to the shoulder as close as possible to the scratch patch. For testing on the entire back, place Buzzy® between the shoulder blades. The nerves come in horizontally to the spine, then up the spine, so the top of the spine as close as possible to the “scratch patch” is the right place.

 

Typical experience using Buzzy® for scratch testing

  • Itching was relieved after 7 seconds when Buzzy® was used with ice pack.
  • Itching was relieved after 12 seconds when used with vibration alone.
  • Buzzy® was more effective when pressed in place at the top of the spine, but was not as effective when simply lying on the back as in the picture.
  • After removing Buzzy®, the itching returned after 17 seconds following the buzzy-plus-ice wing trials, and after 13 seconds following the vibration only trials.

 

Cold (down to -20F) has been researched and found NOT to alter the histamine reaction allergy tests look for. In addition, Buzzy® was found to be the most effective intervention to relieve the discomfort of testing.

 

For Allergy Injections

  • Place Buzzy® directly on the site for 30-60 seconds before the procedure
  • Place “between the brain and the pain” during the needle placement and medication administration.
  • For subcutaneous placement on the back side of the arm, place Buzzy® as shown in this picture, then slide Buzzy® toward the armpit/head during the shot itself.

Injuries

Injuries can be caused by specific events, such as accidents or falls, or from reptitive actions. Injuries may impact bones, joints, muscles, tendons and more. Common examples include wrist fractures, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations, and hamstring muscle strain. Injuries can happen at work or play, indoors or outdoors, driving a car, lifting items, or even spending too much time on your feet. These injuries are often accompanied by pain and discomfort. Rest and time can help the healing process of minor injuries. Treating the pain with drugs is not always a good option. Opioids, NSAIDs, and even acetaminophen may cause adverse health reactions. The Oscillice® technology of Buzzy® and VibraCool® can block pain and help speed recovery and the healing process.

 

Bumps and Bruises
Place Buzzy® or VibraCool® with frozen ice wings / ice packs attached directly on the site of pain. The ice pack will reduce swelling and inflammation. The vibration increases blood flow to help the healing process.

 

Elbow/Wrist Injuries
Repetitive motions involving the wrist and elbow, such as typing, writing, texting, gaming and sports such as golf, tennis, baseball, lacrosse and even bowling may cause wrist or elbow pain (ie carpal tunnel, tendinitis, golfer/tennis elbow, bowler’s wrist and gamer’s thumb), swelling and tenderness in the forearm. VibraCool® Easy Fit for Elbow/Wrist offers wearable pain relief that is easy to apply one-handed. Simply put the VibraCool® vibration unit into neoprene pouch on the compression strap. 2.
