- U.S. Pain announces collaboration with Pain Care Labs
- Pain Awareness Month: Always aware of my chronic pain
In honor of Pain Awareness Month, U.S. Pain Foundation is one of three nonprofits to partner with Pain Care Labs, a noninvasive pain relief device company. The goal of the partnership, which also includes the Athena Project and ATI Foundation, is to work together to help connect patients with medical devices for pain management.
Pain Care Labs offers three devices using their clinically-proven, patented Cool-Pulse™ technology: VibraCool®, which offers pain relief through wearable cold and vibration therapy; Buzzy®, a kid-friendly cold and vibration device to block needle pain; and its newest innovation, DuoTherm™ vibrating back relief device, which provides hot and cold vibrational therapy. The devices were developed by pediatric emergency doctor and pain researcher Amy Baxter, MD.

When most people think of sarcoidosis, what usually comes to mind is … OK, let’s start by correcting that – most people don’t ever think of sarcoidosis at all (in fact, most have never even heard of it). Once they learn of this disease, usually because someone they know has been diagnosed, they most likely think about breathing problems. That makes sense, since 90% of people with sarcoidosis have it in their lungs. This can lead to severe bouts of pneumonia, pulmonary fibrosis (scarring), and more.
