According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 5 adults in the United States has chronic pain. They say chronic pain increases with age and is highest in adults 65 and older.
Currently, treatments for pain include prescription and over-the-counter medications, physical therapy, and surgery. However, many medicines, including opioids and non-opioids, can have side effects, such as gastrointestinal toxicity like heartburn or nausea and vomiting, as well as the potential for addiction, abuse, and death.
The health community has been focused on finding pain relieving treatments that don’t rely on medicines, hoping to reduce side effects for those suffering with pain and help improve their quality of life.
That’s why novel advancements in nanotechnology and patch delivery systems show so much promise. Interventions like topical analgesic pain patches or creams may help people manage chronic pain, reduce their suffering, and improve their outcomes.
Adults with arthritic, neuropathic, and musculoskeletal pain have found relief with the Kailo Pain Patch by Pain Relief Technologies LLC, a non-drug, nanotechnology-formulated topical analgesic pain-relieving patch.
The new way to manage pain is easy to use. Here’s how it works: Kailo, a 2.75 x 5.5-inch adhesive pain patch containing copper, silver, and silicon uses these conductive and semi-conductive materials to provide analgesia through nano-capacitors that emit and absorb electromagnetic radiation/energy.
“The tiny capacitors in the patch interact with and influence the electrical pain signals in your body, improving the body’s ability to perform what it was designed to do,” says Stuart Fetzer, CEO and founder of Pain Relief Technologies. “Reduce pain and improve healing on its own.”
The patches are area-specific and Fetzer advises putting the patch along the nervous system pathway somewhere between where the pain exists and the brain. For example, someone with lower back pain would place the patch along their spine, above the pain and well below the head.
Clinical research shows this new pain patch is highly effective. Researchers surveyed 66 patients enrolled in a study at two U.S. investigator sites on day 1, day 14, and day 30. Using Kailo, patients showed a 71 percent decrease in the mean Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) severity score from baseline to day 30.
Additionally, 98 percent of participants reported “less” or “a lot less” concurrent oral medication use; and 97 percent of participants were “very or extremely” satisfied with the Kailo Pain Patch and noted that they preferred the patch over oral medication.
According to those clinical trial results published in the Anesthesia and Pain Research Journal, “interim results suggest that the non-pharmacological topical pain patch studied was effective and safe for the relief of moderate and severe pain attributed to arthritic, neurological, and musculoskeletal disorders.”
They go on to say, “significant reductions in pain were reported,” and explain, “these interim results support the use of this OTC pain patch as a first-line non-pharmacological treatment option and should be considered by healthcare professionals and patients.”
Patients surveyed also show significant quality of life improvements including better mood, sleep, walking ability, relationships with other people, and enjoyment of life. Patients reported no side effects.
The pain patches are reusable, long lasting, and waterproof. They don’t need batteries or to be charged.
“The pain relief continues as long as you’re wearing the product,” says Fetzer. “And you can wear the product all the time. So, unlike pills, which lose their effectiveness over time, this kind of pain patch — because it’s powered by the electrical signals of the body — works as long as your body is working.”
Many people managing chronic pain have found pain relief with this patch. For example, in a testimonial, Tammie Winkler says Kailo helped the leg nerve pain she’s had for 30 years that intensified five years ago after spine surgery.
She felt relief within minutes of trying the Kailo patch. “I am pain free and feel so much younger and fit,” she says.
Liza Burdette uses Kailo for her shoulder, neck, hand, arm, hip, and back. Calling it a “relief,” she says, “I can now wake up in the morning not feeling sore, stiff, and in pain. It has helped my quality of life.”
