INTEGRATED PAIN SOLUTIONS BY PAIN CARE LABS TO DEBUT AT IHS 2019
ATLANTA, GEORGIA USA – As the health care community increasingly seeks integrated
health solutions, one of the greatest opportunities lies in pain management. It is estimated that
80% of those with opioid use disorder begin with pills prescribed for pain. With 1301 fatal
overdoses daily, integrating alternative pain solutions may be the easiest way to save lives.
According to pain researcher Dr. Amy Baxter, a combination of approaches is at the core of
integrated pain relief. “Pain relief requires emotional and distraction elements beyond simple
nerve inhibition. Just as there is not one magic solution for health, pain relief requires
multi-modal, integrated solutions.” She added, “To get away from fast-acting pills, we need
faster pain relief that works on contact and lasts to give patients power over pain. ”
Pain Care Labs is the world leader in non-invasive pain relief options. By leveraging the body’s
own physiology to inhibit pain, the Company’s patented Cool-Pulse™ technology has blocked
pain from over 32 million needle procedures. Proven effective in over 25 independent clinical
trials, the same pain relief technology is now available for home and on the go. New wearable
VibraCool Extended, Easy Fit, and Flex are FDA-cleared, drug-free, reusable vibrational
cryotherapy devices for treating arthritis, joint pain, muscle strain, tendinitis, and more.
The science behind Pain Care Labs’ drug-free solutions is the well-established “gate control”
mechanism for pain inhibition. While multiple devices and creams address one of the four
motion nerves that “shut the gate” on fast pain, only VibraCool’s patented combination and
frequency vibration inhibit all four, adding ice to activate an additional DNIC pain relief pathway.
A 2018 review of patient-focused interventions ranked the Company’s technology 2 at the top:
Interventions using coolant and vibration together, as well as a combination
of site-specific and patient-led interventions, showed the most consistent
effects in reducing self-reported pain, fear or distress.
The Company has been recognized as the Frost & Sullivan Industry Leader in Localized Pain
Relief Technology. Pain Care Labs will debut its VibraCool FLEX in the New Product Showcase
at the Integrative Healthcare Symposium (February 21-23, 2019 at the New York Hilton,
Midtown). Please find Pain Care Labs and its full line of drug-free pain relief devices at Booth #
TT8 and in the New Product Showcase.
