Arthritis

Arthritis aches and pains can result from overuse or age (osteoarthritis) or an inflammatory condition (rheumatoid arthritis). Treating pain with drugs (steroids, NSAIDs, biologics, acetaminophen) may be part of the pain relief plan. Buzzy® Helps with methotrexate, Humira®, Enbrel® and other arthritis treatment shot pain. When pain flares despite a comprehensive plan, VibraCool® and Buzzy® are proven to help treat pain from the muscle restriction and tension arthritis can cause. Pain Care Labs’ drug free pain relief includes specific frequencies of mechanical stimulation (vibration) enhanced with either cold to reduce inflammation or heat to help spasm. Our proven combination of ice and vibration is a comfortable way to help with arthritis pain all over the body. VibraCool® or Buzzy® Helps when you put it where it hurts.

 

Arthritic knee pain: attach VibraCool® Extended with an ice pack directly where you hurt. For some people, ice can increase pain, so either use the soft side of the ice pack instead of the more intense blue side, use a heat pack instead, or just use the vibration. VibraCool®‘s M-Stim(tm) mechanical stimulation was twice as effective as E-Stim electrical stimulation in a clinical trial for knee osteoarthritis. For hip arthritis or pain, use the VibraCool® Flex.

 

When pain flares despite a comprehensive plan, VibraCool® and Buzzy® are proven to help treat pain from the muscle restriction and tension arthritis can cause.

 

For Arthritis Injections on the arm

  • Place Buzzy® with the ice pack on the site of injection, leave in place 30 – 60 seconds
  • Move toward the spine or brain to place Buzzy® “between the brain and the pain”.
  • During the injection, orient Buzzy® with the switch closest to the patient’s head, and Buzzy’s bigger rounded end toward the injection to place the motor as close as possible to the injection site.

 

For a stomach injection

  • Place Buzzy® with the ice pack on the site of injection, leave in place 30 – 60 seconds
  • Move Buzzy® laterally.
  • Leave the unit vibrating in place while administering the injection
  • Rub on the site after injection if the medication stings.

 

For an injection in the thigh

  • Relax the muscle by lying down or extending the leg; even sitting in a chair can stretch the muscle and make shots more painful.
  • Place Buzzy® with the ice pack on the site of injection, leave in place 30 – 60 seconds
  • Move Buzzy® toward the hip a half-inch (1-2cm) after the pre-numbing.
  • Leave in place and vibrating during the injection
