It’s fun to get out hiking and rock scrambling with the kids, but sometimes I forget that I’m not as young as they are. My body isn’t quite as nimble and quick as it used to be. When I overdo things, my body, the lower back especially, lets me know it.
There has been several times that I’ve worn a backpack that was too heavy or I lifted something the wrong way that resulted in excruciating lower back pain. Sometimes that pain prevented me from doing anything for several days.
When I experience lower back pain, I want fast relief so I can get back to what I enjoy doing. I don’t have time to slow down, especially with three kids.
Aleve recently sent me their Aleve Direct Therapy which was released nationwide in July 2016. This small device is placed directly onto the lower back with adhesive pads and provides relief of lower back pain without any odorous creams or medications. The thing I like best is it can be worn discreetly during the day and used for 30 minute sessions when I need it. No one knows I’m wearing it and it will provide pain relief when I need it most. (It is recommended that you wait 30 minutes between sessions.)
Let me tell you a little about what Aleve Direct Therapy is and how it provides lower back pain relief.
Aleve Direct Therapy is a high quality, durable device specifically designed for the temporary relief of lower back pain. It uses waveform technology to alleviate pain and muscle soreness due to strain from daily activities like exercise, household chores, and work activities. Aleve Direct Therapy uses TENS, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. This therapeutic stimulation uses electrical pulses to provide deep penetrating treatment to relieve pain in two ways. The two theories of how it works are that TENS blocks the transmission of pain and then stimulates endorphins to naturally reduce pain. These electrical pulses range from gentle tingling or light tapping sensations.
The user controls the intensity of the pulses with the help of this wireless remote. Sessions last for 30 minutes and provide excellent pain relief.
