Cell Phone Elbow?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2009 by myomegapain

Hold the phone! According to the CTIA-Wireless Association, over 250 million Americans subscribe to cell phone service, and over 1 out of 5 households are cell-phone only. It’s one thing to get a work-related injury like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from typing all day, but now we have to worry about pinched nerves from using our phones??

It turns out Cell Phone Elbow is caused from bending your arm for an extended period of time, which compresses your ulnar nerve. This causes a loss of blood flow, reduced mobility and pain. So what’s a cell phone user to do? Here are some suggestions:

  • Rotate ears frequently. If you feel any tension in your arm, switch hands. This will aid circulation.
  • If you’ve been on the phone for a long time and are feeling tension, swing your arms around and try to loosen them up. Stretching is also extremely beneficial.
  • Go hands free! This is a safe alternative for many reasons. Many people get injured when they’re distracted by their phones. In fact, several people have been badly injured recently because they were tweeting on their phones and not paying attention to what they were doing. These injuries are being called Twinjuries…Please avoid Twinjuries. It’s completely unnecessary and pretty embarrassing.
  • Use your cell phone less. This can be very liberating! Turn it off for an afternoon. If you’re used to getting work calls or stressful texts and time-consuming emails, take a vacation. We managed to get on just fine before we started using cell phones. We can surely survive without them now.
  • If you’re already experiencing Cell Phone Elbow, treatments include injections, ultrasounds to loosen scar tissue, or chiropractic care. Unfortunately, all of these are very expensive.
  • The best thing you can do to relieve your pain quickly is to use a topical pain reliever like MyOmega™. Not only does it work quickly, but it lasts up to 6 hours. Give your forearm a therapeutic rub with MyOmega™ Triple Strength Pain Relief Rub for a blast of cooling relief. A little massage will loosen up your muscles and get you on your way to pain-free cell phone use! For a more intense massage, try MyOmega™ Penetrating Heat Therapy Cream. This timed-release heating cream uses Capsaicin to virtually melt away the pain. Best of all, it works better over time. An excellent choice for the regular cell-phone user.

MyOmega™ is available at CVS or online right here.

The Ultimate Foot Rub

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by myomegapain

You’ve never truly had a foot rub until you’ve experienced a MyOmega™ massage. Why? Because MyOmega™ is packed with pain-relieving ingredients and natural anti-inflammatories that will make your toes swoon.

Warming Rub for Cold, Achy Feet

For a penetrating, warming massage, use MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream. If there’s a partner involved, prop their foot up on a pillow (preferably covered with a towel), and begin to massage MyOmega™ Heat Therapy Cream into their sole, toes and arch using circular motions. This will help stimulate circulation. Work from top to bottom and make sure to take your time with each stroke and not to go too quickly.

Next, massage MyOmega™ into the ankle and begin to slowly rotate the foot at the ankle. This will help loosen up joints and is excellent for arthritis relief. Once the ankle is limber, focus on the arch of the foot by pressing the heel of your hand against the bottom of the foot moving from the ball of the foot to the heel. The penetrating heat of MyOmega™ will accentuate the effects of the massage, so even if you’re not a trained masseuse, your partner will be very, very thankful.

An Invigorating Pick-Me Up Massage

This massage is recommended for athletes and those with hard-working feet in need of a revitalizing massage. For this particular massage you will need to use MyOmega™ Triple Strength Pain Relief Rub.

The initial tingle of Menthol & Camphor is guaranteed to make feet giddy. As you work your way from toes to sole, that little tingle will become a soothing blast of powerfully refreshing pain relief. Menthol “replaces” the pain sensation with a cooling, soothing one, distracting from sore muscles and allowing you to fully indulge in the simple (yet incredible) pleasure of a foot rub. Try it out on yourself or practice on a partner. You’ll never go back to regular lotion foot rubs again!

Heaven!
