DIRECTIONS FOR COMMON PAIN AREAS AND PLACEMENT OPTIONS

Here are directions and examples of common pain areas and possible patch placements. For best results, it is important to locate your specific areas of pain and place the patches on those areas. Initially, you may need to apply 2-4 patches in an area to reset the inflammatory process. Re-evaluate your pain level after 3 days. If pain persists, apply 3 to 4 patches for maximum support. If pain has lessened, apply 1 to 2 patches for continued support. If pain is gone, no patches are needed.

HOW DO I PEEL AND APPLY THE PATCHES?

The patch will adhere best to clean, dry, oil-free and hair-free skin. Before applying, clean the area with soap and water or an alcohol wipe. Allow it to air dry. Gently bend the back of the patch to remove one side of the paper backing. Take care not to touch the sticky surface. Place the patch directly on or near the area of pain. Press the sticky side down onto the skin. Remove the remaining paper backing. Press firmly for 5 seconds to ensure a good seal.

In most cases, the patch will adhere for 3 days. If you are experiencing difficulty with the patches staying on, a band-aid, medical tape or 3M micropore paper tape may be used over the patch.

When reapplying after 3 days, avoid applying the patches to the exact same spot on the skin. If irritation occurs, choose a different location. Do not use on open wounds or damaged skin.

HOW MANY PATCHES ARE NEEDED FOR MINOR ACHES AND PAINS?

We recommend applying 1 patch to the painful area. If the pain persists after 30 minutes, add an additional 2 to 3 patches. Up to 4 patches in each area may be needed initially to reset the inflammatory condition and reduce discomfort. After 3 days, remove the patches and re-evaluate your level of pain. If pain persists, apply 2 to 4 patches for maximum support. If pain has lessened, apply 1 to 2 patches for continued support. If pain is no loner present, no patches are needed.

HOW MANY PATCHES ARE NEEDED FOR INTENSE OR CHRONIC PAIN?

We recommend using 3 to 4 patches in each painful area for the first 3-day cycle to reset the inflammatory process and offer maximum support. After 3 days, remove the patches and re-evaluate your level of pain. If pain persists, apply 3 to 4 patches for maximum support. If pain has lessened, apply 1 to 2 patches for continued support. If pain is no longer present, no patches are needed. Many find they need less patches in each area and continue to feel relief. Chronic pain is best supported by continuing to wear 1 to 4 patches in the area for several weeks to allow time for the body to reduce inflammation and experience greater and lasting relief.
