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.
