12 Self-Managing Pain Relief Devices

Manage chronic pain with these portable or home-use remedies

Being able to self-manage chronic pain is a necessary task when trying to get through a typical day, whether at home, at work, or on-the-go. As FDA makes greater advances on digital health and software products, wearables, mobile apps for migraine and for low back pain, and other devices have become a reality for easy complementary treatment. When used in combination with prescribed medications or other forms of pain management therapy, devices may provide a welcome addition to your overall treatment plan. Despite the expense—these devices range from just over $100 to well over $10,000—portable and home medical devices may be a worthwhile purchase if you’re looking for better penetrative care compared to typical, over-the-counter treatments.

Ask your physician or physical therapist whether one of these self-managing, pain-relief devices may be right for your specific condition—he/she also may be able to help you with insurance coverage—and recharge your body today!

ACTIV PRO LaserStim (Multi Radiance Medical – Solon, OH)
ACTIV PRO LaserStim is a cordless, portable laser therapy system (neurological electrical stimulation and laser in a single probe), providing powerful, fast, and safe treatment without raising skin temperature. The system safely delivers light to deep tissue and facilitates absorption, avoiding unwanted photothermal effects (exposure to radiation) phototoxicity (skin irritations) and apoptosis (the death of cells). The synchronous use of the super pulsed laser and ultra-bright infrared, red and blue LEDs are optimized for deep penetration. As a chiropractic tool for relieving chronic pain all over the body, laser therapy works by increasing the speed, quality, and strength of repair in muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues, bones, nerves, and dermal tissues, especially after an injury. As a result, inflammation is reduced, and users can experience pain relief.
Price: $14,995 (Requires a prescription. Not available through insurance, but talk to your doctor if a medical necessity is required)
