Australian Breakthrough Brings Relief To Chronic Pain Sufferers


Relief is finally at hand for people who have been suffering chronic pain such as arthritis, chronic back pain, endometriosis, lung inflammation, acute respiratory disease, long-term aches and pain and other inflammatory conditions.

Pain and chronic pain are still the most common reason that people seek medical help, affecting one in five Australians, yet it remains one of the most neglected and misunderstood areas of healthcare.

“People need to know that there is no effective treatment, clinically proven to work for those who endure chronic pain daily”, says Darren Wedge, co-founder of a biomedical company, Oska Wellness. “The best part is that pain killers and opioids no longer have to be relied on as the sole treatment to alleviate pain.”

Arthritis alone affects 3.9 million Australians, costing the health system $5.5 billion in 2015 and that number is expected to be $7.6 billion by 2030. It’s the leading cause of chronic pain and the second most common cause of disability and early retirement due to ill health in Australia. *

Oska Wellness has a flagship product called Oska Pulse, an Australian designed product that has recently been approved by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), opening the door for more people to actively take control of their pain, without having to rely on pain killers.

The internationally award-winning product has the potential to revolutionise the way people treat pain and inflammation-related conditions.

Research shows there are potentially 1.4 million Australian’s who are battling an addiction to prescribed pain killers who have a genuine need for pain relief. In 2017, doctors were writing 14 million prescriptions for opioid pain killers.

“We have the opportunity to genuinely help people in pain, to gain control of their lives. Life does not have to be lived in pain and we have the research and testimonials to show that Oska Pulse works”, says Wedge.

Steve Waller has a story he wants to share.

“I used to have pain down my leg and foot, 24 hours a day. I struggled to put my foot on the ground so getting in and out of the car was a real challenge, as was walking”, says Waller.

“I’ve always been very active and exercised daily but I got to the point where I had to minimise everything I did. My long-term doctor couldn’t identify anything other than Osteo Arthritis and said I should just manage it with painkillers, and I was taking up to 8 painkillers and 4 anti-inflammatory tablets every day.”

“I had an MRI which gave some answers in terms of what the problem was, but the treatment was epidural cortisone injections, which worked but only for 6 weeks”, says Waller.

After hearing about Oska Pulse, Waller decided to try it.

“It took a few weeks of using Oska Pulse before I felt any pain relief but then it kicked in and I have been using Oska every day since and the best thing is no more injections to treat the pain.”

“This device is a game-changer”, says Wedge, “and people who have been long-suffering from inflammation, arthritic pain, and chronic pain now have an easy to use, drug-free, clinically proven option to relieve and treat pain and we are so happy to be able to finally share this technology with them.”

Oska Pulse uses a series of specifically configured Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF), mimicking the natural electric signals produced by the body, addressing the source of pain at a cellular level, without the need for drugs and pain killers.

“Oska Pulse is so effective that’s it being used in medical and aged care settings around the world to aid in pain management and to fasten the healing process from existing conditions or after someone has an accident or is recovering from surgery”, says Wedge.

“We’re ready to help chronic pain sufferers ditch the painkillers and prescribed drugs and live pain-free.”
