Placement

How to use the Signal Relief patch

Whether you’re in need of relief for chronic discomfort or recovering from an injury or procedure, finding proper placement of the Signal Relief patch is paramount. Since everybody and every body is different, placement of the patch will vary slightly. Review this material to take the first step towards relief!

1. Find the spot.

Locate the source of your discomfort before applying the adhesive or securing the patch in place. We recommend placing the patch approximately 1” above where you feel the most intense discomfort. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t find the proper placement right away! Once the patch is in the right position, you may experience a warming or tingling sensation.

2. Place the patch.

Once you have found the proper placement for relief, secure the patch in place. You can use the included adhesives or simply tuck the Signal Relief patch inside a close-fitting article of clothing such as the waistband of your pants, inside a sports bra, or under a compression sleeve. The Signal Relief patch is most effective when worn in direct contact with the skin; however, skin-to-skin contact is not necessary for relief.

3. Get back to the life you love.

Use the Signal Relief patch daily or as often as you need it for long lasting, affordable, drug-free relief. The Signal Relief patch is non-habit forming and does not put anything into your body. Many experience the most relief after wearing the patch for 24-72 hours. For the best results, wear the patch overnight.

• If muscle knots flare up, place the patch directly over the knot(s) for 3-4 minutes.
After another 3-4 minutes, your discomfort should be gone. Repeat this process as often as necessary.

For upper back tension, leave the patch at the highest point (between your shoulder blades) overnight.

For lower back tension, leave the patch on the most irritating area overnight.
