Pain relief patches are a convenient way to relieve pain without the need for medication. They can be used by people of all ages, including children, and are particularly useful for those who cannot tolerate oral medications due to allergies or other conditions.
There are several types of pain relief patches available on the market today. Some are designed specifically for certain types of pain, while others can be used for multiple types of ailments. The following is a brief description of some common types of patches:
Transdermal pain relief patches work by applying a small amount of medication directly to your skin through a thin film that sticks to your body. The medication is absorbed into your bloodstream through your skin and works much like an IV would work if you were in hospital getting treatment. While the transdermal patch is an excellent option for anyone who has difficulty swallowing pills, it does have some drawbacks as well.
For example, the medication is not as easily controlled and can be absorbed too quickly or too slowly depending on where you place it on your body and how thickly it is applied. Also, if you sweat heavily or have oily skin then it may not stick as well as it should so you will need to use a new one. A good rule of thumb is to keep your body as dry as possible when using the transdermal patch.
Electrotherapy Patches are a new and exciting option for people who are looking for a non-invasive method of pain relief. These pain relief patches use microcurrents to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself, reducing inflammation and speeding up tissue repair processes while also providing an added boost to your immune system. It’s a great option for people who suffer from chronic pain and want to reduce their dependency on traditional medications. The patches are easy to use, just apply them to the desired area of the body and leave them overnight or for as long as recommended by your doctor. For best results, it is recommended that you use them at least three times per week.
