What is Joint Pain ?
There are 360 joints in the human body, the points at which any bones meet to allow the skeleton to move. When damage occurs at any of these sites, either from injury or ongoing illness, a degree of discomfort or pain follows.
While any joint can be affected, especially with degenerative disease, most commonly the major joints - knee, back, shoulder, hips, elbow, wrist, knuckles and ankle – are the ones that cause pain. In some cases it can be so widespread and severe that simple daily tasks become near impossible.
Types of Joint Pain
Joint pain is a generalized term for discomfort at the joint sites.
- Restriction of movement
- Aching and a feeling of warmth at the site
- Changes in the degree of severity throughout the day
Common causes of joint pain include injury from sprains and strains in the affected area and overuse during physical activity. These types of injuries usually last a relatively short duration and improve rapidly with rest.
Joint pain caused by illness and infection is also common including Mumps, influenza, hepatitis, fibromyalgia, sarcoidosis and rickets. Ongoing joint pain, especially as people age, may be caused by various rheumatic conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus and gout.
Why Oska Pulse?
Oska Pulse is a portable, wearable device that targets back pain at its source.
Clinically tested and doctor recommended, it stimulates the muscle and tissue in the back area to encourage repair and relieve aches and pains.
Drug-free, non-invasive and with no known side-effects Oska Pulse utilizes Pulsed Electromagnetic Field technology – or PEMF – To enable the individual to start living with less pain.
The Technology Behind Oska Pulse
You’re probably asking yourself – why have I never heard of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF)? Although not widely known, PEMF technology has been utilized in the medical community for over 60 years. Electromedicine is slowly making a resurgence in the United States and Oska Pulse is unique in that it is one of the only portable and affordable PEMF devices on the market.
PEMF uses low level electromagnetic waves that target the source of the various types of pain encouraging recovery at a cellular level, speeding up the natural healing processes of your body.
How It Works?
Oska Pulse emits a continuous pulsing field that passes through all tissue types. These fields will also pass through clothing, so Oska Pulse does not have to be directly in contact with your skin. Imagine a pebble being thrown into a lake – small waves radiate from the center until they disappear into the distance.
Similarly, small electromagnetic waves produced by Oska Pulse travel to the pain site to soothe and relieve.

How Is Oska Pulse Used?
Oska Pulse does not need to make direct contact with your skin or even be on your body. The field has a diameter of 22”, so Oska Pulse can be positioned near the area of pain and still be effective. Within 8-10” of the pain is optimal. Oska Pulse offers the flexibility of treatment as you go about your daily activities. Use it at home, on-the-go or in partnership with your doctor.
It can be placed in your pocket or purse depending on where you need pain relief. With the included compression wrap, Oska Pulse can also be worn over or under clothing around the leg, arm or waist. Oska Pulse is powered by a rechargeable battery, just like your cell phone, that is simply charged using the included cable. A full charge takes just 3 hours and will then last for approximately 10 hours of use.

Put on Your Body
In many people, joint pain from injury will subside within days. Every body is unique. And in some cases ongoing pain management is a reality, especially with aging. With each case of recurrent or ongoing joint pain it is important to find the treatment – or combinations of treatments – that work for the individual. When this point is reached, most people are able to continue a full active life at work and at play. This is where Oksa Pulse may be able to help.
