There are very few things more certain than the aches and pains we will feel as we journey through life. Whether caused by sports injury, surgery or an accident, pain will always be a by-product of an active lifestyle, and oftentimes, traditional remedies can take more time to heal us than we have time to stop and wait.
With conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and migraine headaches, the pain has gotten so bad, some have even resorted to hospitalization for nutritional and drug treatment due to the debilitating symptoms. Many do not have the luxury of time to enable disruptions of this nature. With jobs and down-time so scarce, boomers are using the time to research the best products on the market to find devices that help relieve pain and heal injuries, in an effort to stay active and productive.
Chronic, debilitating pain can and will cause us to make compromises in our lifestyles, our careers and our relationships, all to accommodate our pain. Many of us have tried a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional treatment plans to improve and manage our situations while meeting with mixed results.
Some of the most common causes of pain can be treated topically with success with a wonderful product known as BioFreeze. This product is at the top of the list for chiropractors, physical therapists and sports medicine specialists, just to name a few.
This topical analgesic gel offers effective relief for 4-5 hours and is available in a roll on, spray bottle or pump applicator. The product has been used for Arthritis, sore muscles, joints and back pain, chronic or acute. With so many gels on the market, ActiveForever still finds BioFreeze to be the most effective, fastest and longest-acting pain reliever of them all, and it is still the highest endorsed brand in the patient care community.
For those affected by migraine headache, seemingly nothing can help ease the intense pain. However ActiveForever has found the Tranquil Sounds Personal Oxygen Bar erases this preconception entirely! With relaxing music and concentrated oxygen, this innovative device relaxes both the body and the mind.
Studies conducted at the American Headache Society (AHS) shows the economic impact of pain in the workplace, estimating that migraine headaches account for more than 24 billion dollars annually in medical expenditures and lost productivity. This research went on to report people with 15 or more migraine attacks per month lost approximately 4.5 hours of work productivity a week!
Fibromyalgia is an even more widespread issue, currently affecting over 12 million people in the United States. The good news is that there are new technologies and products available that have demonstrated success in treating fibromyalgia.
One of the most remarkable fibromyalgia pain relief devices on the market, the Thermotex Infrared Heating Pad is ideal for pain sufferers of all ages. Available in different designs to fit virtually any part of your body; feet, shoulders, elbows, knees, wrists, tendons, and joints all are pampered by the soothing infrared waves of these revolutionary light therapy tools. Only 20 minutes and you’ll begin to feel the deep penetrating heat, warming you from the core and melting away the pain.
ActiveForever closely works with organizations on the cutting edge of existing and new products and technology that work and effectively address pain…Not all pain, but the majority of the pain that often put a halt on our desired activities.
The Laser Touch One (LTO) is a breakthrough product that acts as a facilitator of the healing process by helping to stimulate the natural functions of cellular tissue. This hand held device addresses pain with two proven modalities, low level laser therapy (cold laser) and a micro-current for electrical stimulation. It’s the only FDA approved device of its kind, and has been proven to be 93% effective in relieving pain.
Easy to use, and preferred by many chiropractors and pain specialists, the LTO promotes natural cell repair and is proven to help with both circulation and stiffness. A simple 2 minute procedure is sometimes all it takes, but the dual modalities can be used and should be used until as often as needed until you feel relief. This is an example of a device that can help the body heal itself at a rate that is faster than the damage we cause our bodies.
There’s a very good reason why you often hear the phrase “debilitating pain” while watching commercials about pain and drugs. While there’s no such thing as a guaranteed cure for chronic or debilitating pain, there are many natural ways you can get your life back on track. Whether it’s trying a new diet regimen, maintaining an exercise schedule or choosing the right healing devices for your body, remember no two bodies are alike, and it might take time until you find the most ideal recipe for yours. This is an effort worth exploring, especially when the show must go on.
