Types of Neck Pain
Neck pain is a broader term concerning discomfort anywhere in the neck area, and in some cases extending down to the upper back and shoulder.
Characteristics of neck pain include:
Muscle ache or spasm
Discomfort in the neck, upper back or shoulders
Stiffness in the neck area
A reduced range of motion or ability to turn the head
Pain that radiates down one or both arms (and sometimes the legs)
Provides safe and effective relief for pain patients
In a randomized, double-blind placebo clinical study, the majority of patients achieved significant pain reduction with Oska Pulse. The study was conducted at the renowned Scripps Pain Institute and validated that Oska Pulse is an effective tool in pain attenuation.

Oska Pulse Clinical Results
The clinical trial was completed at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California and conducted by a respected team of doctors: Dr. Joseph Shurman, Dr. Brenda K. Wiederhold, Dr. Roger Kasendorf, Dr. John Qian, and Dr. Mark D. Wiederhold.
The renowned pain management doctors conducted the controlled trial with 30 patients (diagnosed with knee, shoulder, or back pain) recruited at two San Diego area pain clinics.
Each participant was provided a daily log to report their pain, stress, and daily use of the Oska Pulse. Pain and stress scores in the daily logs were based on a 10 point scale, and participants were sent home with either an Oska Pulse or a placebo device. Both patients and investigators were blinded as to real or placebo Oska device.
The majority of those who used the actual Oska Pulse had a clinically significant decrease in pain levels
No patients using the real Oska Pulse had an increase in pain
Those who used the placebo device showed no change in their reported pain levels
PEMF Clinical Research
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) is a widely utilized technology with successful clinical uses across a wide spectrum of tissue regeneration applications from bone growth through to pain management.
PEMF technology has been clinically deployed for over 60 years and its efficacy is established in over 10,000 clinical studies.

"We were very encouraged with this trial and it has provided valuable information on how PEMF therapy can treat pain. With the opioid epidemic, it is really timely to find a product like Oska Pulse that addresses the need for non-narcotic pain relief solutions for patients."
