If you read about me you will see I am a Chiropractor and Massage therapist, so I have seen a lot of people in pain and none of it is good. From a therapists point of view pain makes my job difficult, everything is self-protective, reactive and so much of your time is wasted placating the pain reaction that is happening in the tissues.
Recently I got my first opportunity to test out the LifeWave pain patches-IceWave. I had heard good reports that 80% of people will experience 50% or greater pain relief in under 5 minutes. I had heard of a few cases from colleagues where long standing conditions had been almost instantly relieved and so I had to check it out for myself.
Fiona is a single Mum with three active kids and a knee crushed from a horse falling on it over 20 years ago. The injury has caused her a lot of problems over the years, but recently it flared up badly and when I saw her she was in excruciating pain, she did not want to move it at all which made Physio virtually impossible, she had knife like pain traveling through the whole leg and her inner thigh had turned into a soft pulpy jelly- a reflex inhibition of the Vastus Medialis Oblique muscle that often occurs with knee problems and further complicates rehab.
There is not really much you can do while someone is in that much pain apart from ice/heat/ultrasound, acupuncture would be beneficial but I don’t practice it. Forget any physical therapy-even the lightest pressure was intensely painful and any muscle activation or joint movement was impossible. Not nice.
So, I pulled out a set of patches, put the brown patch over the main pain and the white one just above it. Immediately Fiona experienced warmth and smelt wintergreen. The sharp pain vanished and within a few minutes she did 10 good quad pumps. She kept saying, “What the #### is in those patches! This is unbelievable”. Fiona has had a colorful past…
The interesting thing is there is no wintergreen in the patches and no heat producing chemicals… this reaction is purely energetic. The patches emit a particular energetic frequency that takes away pain.
I then felt to move the white patch to her sternum and she experienced a tremendous energetic release. I could see the goosebumps all over her arms and legs. It was stinking hot in Australia this day, so it wasn’t the cold. She said she was feeling calmness and a sense of wellbeing and the pent up stress that has accompanied this and other issues seemed to leave her body.
I have never seen such a powerful change or received such heartfelt thanks from someone whose life I have just helped. And it was all so easy, and all so quick. What a great adjunct to a busy practice. My new protocol for acute pain will be to patch up patients first for three days, then get them in to start therapy. It will make my job way easier. Will keep you posted in this.
