chinagel-whiteChina–Gel, Inc. has added to their Topical Pain Reliever line by introducing China-Gel White, a color free version of the popular topical pain reliever. Featuring the same great herbal formula only without any dye, China-Gel White will be available in all of the current sizes.
 
“Based on requests from medical professionals and patients who use the product, we decided to launch a color free version of the original formula,” stated Justin Toups, Marketing Manager, China-Gel. “We are delighted with opportunities to provide medical professionals the products they want, so they, in turn, can provide the necessary care for their patients. The original green formula will continue to be available as well.”
 
Developed by a chiropractor, China-Gel is an herbal topical pain relieving gel that incorporates modern technology with ancient pain relieving concepts of Chinese medicine. Resembling a fine hand cream, it spreads on evenly and then absorbs completely into the skin without staining clothing or needing to be wiped off because there is no greasy residue left behind. It has a pleasant and soothing lavender/menthol fragrance on application that ultimately becomes odorless as the gel is absorbed.

Bolingbrook, Ill. – March 26, 2014 – As springtime sports teams kick into gear, ScripHessco, providers of high quality chiropractic equipment and supplies, highlights the important role that chiropractic care plays in optimizing athletic performance. All athletes, including those in amateur leagues, school teams, and youth sports programs, reap the benefits of greater endurance, improved functionality, faster return-to-play, and avoidance of habit-forming painkillers.
 
springsports“Chiropractic care helps athletes of all ages to perform at their best, helping them to obviate and better address injuries,” says Kray Kibler, CFO, ScripHessco. “With milder weather and the return to baseball, golf, tennis, track and other spring sports, doctors of chiropractic (D.C.s) play an important role in delivering preventive care for tendinitis, stress fractures, torn rotator cuffs and muscle spasms that could sideline activities.”

Professional sports organizations across the spectrum rely on the unique care that D.C.s deliver, and today many college and high school teams are including access to chiropractic care.

“An integrative approach is critical for optimizing care for athletes,” Kibler adds. “As more organizations, coaches and athletic trainers recognize the value of chiropractic care, athletes gain a competitive edge. A D.C. on the healthcare team adds to the well-rounded approach to healthcare as some pro teams will not go anywhere without their chiropractor.”

ScripHessco is the leading supplier to the chiropractic profession, offering an unparalleled selection of supplies and equipment for a one-stop shopping experience, as well as value-added services that help chiropractors improve their patient outcomes.

Spencer Baron, D.C., team chiropractor for the Miami Dolphins, adds, “It’s gratifying to witness the growing recognition of chiropractic as a valued approach for promoting wellness, improving sports performance, hastening injury rehabilitation and helping to maintain career longevity.”

FDA Clears Erchonia’s New Allay Laser for Chronic Heel Pain from Plantar Fasciitis
Press Release
Written by TAC Staff   
Tuesday, 29 April 2014 17:44
McKinney, TX April 22, 2014 – Erchonia today announces the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the company 510 (k) clearance to market Allay, its new low level laser for the relief of chronic heel pain from plantar fasciitis.
 
erchonialogoErchonia received FDA clearance based on a double-blind, randomized, multi-site and placebo-controlled clinical trial. In order to participate in the study, patients had to have self-reported pain of greater than 50 on a visual analog scale (VAS) of 0 to 100 and be unresponsive to conservative measures.

After just two Allay treatments a week for three weeks, patients treated with the Allay laser reported reduced pain on the VAS scale at 2 weeks, 6 months and 12 months post-treatment. On average, patients went from a 68 on the VAS scale down to 8 at the 12-month mark. Those patients who received a placebo laser did a not achieve a statistically-significant reduction in pain at any time during the clinical trial.

Michael Coughlin, MD, the clinical investigator, stated, “Erchonia’s Allay low level laser for chronic plantar fasciitis demonstrated exceptional results with a marked reduction in almost all of the 30 treated patients. They had suffered from plantar fasciitis for an average of almost a year—one patient had pain for 5 years. All had undergone a variety of non-operative treatments which had all been unsuccessful. At the year follow-up point, almost all patients noted a dramatic reduction in pain and an improvement in function.”

Kerry Zang, DPM, added; “I use the Erchonia Allay for chronic plantar fasciitis as part of a regenerative medicine protocol. This new technology is a breakthrough for chronic heel pain sufferers, because it offers pain-free treatment with no known side effects or contraindications. Low level laser technology works by stimulating a physiological response which is necessary to healing—whereas other treatments such as cortisone, suppresses inflammation which delays or even stops the healing process.”

Charlie Shanks, vice president of Erchonia, comments, “This FDA-clearance for the Allay laser is Erchonia’s latest example of our ongoing commitment to low level laser technology research. Not only can it provide non-invasive relief to those who suffer from this type of chronic heel pain, the Allay laser itself is extremely simple to operate and doesn’t require manual operation like all other pain management devices.”

The FDA has previously cleared Erchonia’s low level lasers for the reduction of chronic neck and shoulder pain; non-invasive reduction of cellulite, the non-invasive circumference reduction of the arms and the waist, hips and thighs; for liposuction and breast augmentation assistance and the reduction of associated pain; and for the treatment of acne.
