Has anyone here tried a product called Actipatch? If so, what was your experience with it?
It’s a electromagnetic device you put over the area of pain and it is supposed to improve blood flow to reduce inflammation and pain..... so it’s claimed. It’s drug free and approved by the FDA and Health Canada. I got a 7 day trial for $10.00 CAD. Both my hubby and I are trying it. You leave it on all day and night and only take it off for bathing. So far it’s helped a bit. I am waking less frequently at night because of lower back/hip pain. Slept 6 hours without waking last night 😀
Here’s the link. https://www.actipatch.ca/
It’s the Canadian link but I’m sure they sell them in the US and the UK. I think I read somewhere that national health in the UK was considering covering the cost for those getting a prescription for it.
I’ll keep you posted on my experience with it.
Thanks for the feedback @A MyFibroTeam Member. Both hubby and I are trying it. He says it helps him some with his shoulder pain. I am finding a bit of benefit, especially at night as lower back/hip pain has been waking me several times throughout the night. I read reviews and most people say it works but there are a few who have not found it helpful at all. They're having a Black Friday sale...geez... with 25% off so I thought I would purchase the units that last a month. I figure that gives me a whole month to try it. If it doesn't work enough to justify it, I won't be purchasing again. Staying hopeful!
I have prescription lidocaine patches for bursitis in my hips, but have used them on my shoulders for pain. They do help some. Not a miracle cure, by any means, but I'm grateful for any relief I can get.
I have not..what is suppose to do for you?
