Dr Oz: OrthoCor Active Knee System & Actipatch for Joint Pain


Dr Oz: Actipatch & OrthoCor

Doctor Oz spoke about Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy or PEMFs, and then introduced Dr. William Pawluk, a family physician, who used the OrthoCor Active Knee System.  Dr. Pawluk suggested making sure the product was FDA approved before trying or purchasing any item.  Do your research online.

Dr Oz brought out an audience member, Erica, who stated that she had been wearing the OrthoCor device for only a couple of days but had noticed an improvement already. Dr Oz OrthoCorErica stated that she found out about the device from a previous Dr Oz Show and decided to try it out.

Dr Oz: OrthoCor Knee Wrap

Dr. Pawluk explained how the device worked.  On the inside of the device, there were yellow coils that generated an electromagnetic wave.  The combination of heat and energy increases circulation and reduces swelling.  The OrthoCor Knee Wrap retails for $450 and is not covered by insurance.

Dr Oz: Actipatch Review

The Actipatch is a cheaper method but it has not been FDA cleared for medical pain.  Dr Oz had one section of the audience members try the Actipatch.  He spoke to one of those audience members who stated that it felt good and was soothing.  Dr. Pawluk stated that he would recommend this product but that it does take longer to see results.

Dr Oz: Pulsed Magnets vs Static Magnets

Dr Oz stated that you should look for PULSED magnets.  Avoid static magnets unless you’re being helped by a doctor.  Products to be wary of include shoe inserts and wrist magnets, which may not be powerful enough to penetrate through the body.

    Thanks for the show on PEMF. That was the best show yet. We can change the way people heal and treat pain. We really do need a solid alternative in this country and you showed the people of America a better way. Thank You

    That was definitely an enlightening show. I didn’t know there was such a thing. I guess the old static magnets are a thing of the past.

    Dr Oz, After watching you segment on the Acti-Patch I had to try it. I have been using it for my knee and I don’t know what I would do without it. What the acti-patch has done for my quality of life is truly a miracle!! I can now get a pain free nights sleep and function all day long without excruciating and debilitating pain. Dr Oz, this has truly changed my life. I will be forever grateful. I have had my acti-patch for about 3 years and need to order another one but I cannot order from the factory without a prescription. My orthopedic surgen will not write a prescription for me because he states that he cannot find much data. I am no longer his patient because of this. Please help me to find a way to get another knee and back patch. Thank you

    In response to the last post (Eada Logan), there is a veterinary version of the patch that is available at amazon (healfast) and as far as I can tell it exactly the same thing – there is no reason why they should be different. You can find it also on the healfasttherapy.com website.
    It needs no prescription.
