I wanted to pass this article along. In a press release this week, a company called BioElectronics Corp made an announcement that could potentially change the way certain forms of chronic pain are treated.
BioElectronics produce and market inexpensive, disposable, drug-free, anti-inflammatory ‘devices’. These devices are electrical stimulation units, and are potentially a ‘drug free’ way to control pain.
I will be the first to admit I am not familiar with these products… I have used a TENS machine to help with severe flares, as well as laser and ultrasound, but I haven’t used the devices in this article. I have browsed the BioElectronics website and there are a few things that I think I could probably put into my daily ‘management’ routine that could be beneficial. I don’t think in my case it will eradicate drug management, but if it enhances quality of life, I am ALL for it!
I will note that this company is in the United States, so what is and will be FDA approved in the USA is DIFFERENT than what is approved here in Canada. So for all the fellow Canucks out there 😉 we might not have these as an option in the near future.
What ‘Drug free” treatments do you make part of your management plan? Share them in the comments section, they may be able to help someone else!!
Hugs and love and Happy Hump Day!!
