FREDERICK, Md., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioElectronics Corporation (OTC Pink: BIEL), the maker of advanced consumer medical devices and drug-free pain therapies, announced today that it is participating in upcoming consumer educational events and programs as part of an international campaign to discuss alternative pain modalities.
BioElectronics is participating in "Take Control of Your Pain" day sponsored by the U.S. Pain Foundation on Sunday, March 9, at the Phoenix Convention Center. Mac Stein, MSc, PT, will answer questions and provide information about drug-free treatment of injuries and chronic pain. Stein, a registered physical therapist, has been using BioElectronics products in his practice since 2009.
"Consumers should know that physical therapy especially when augmented with pain relief devices like those made by BioElectronics can provide significant relief by quickly minimizing pain and reducing swelling. ActiPatch seamlessly integrates with most pain management programs," Stein said. Stein pointed out that localized treatments are inherently less risky than systemic drugs with the potential for side effects and drug interactions.
