  • Five Ways to Get Involved in the Fight Against Arthritis

    Posted on May 17, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    Wrist-Pain_ArthritisMay is National Arthritis Awareness Month, a time to focus on a condition that is the top cause of disability in America. More than 50 million American adults have been diagnosed with some form of arthritis. With those numbers, the odds are good that you or someone you care about has or will have arthritis.

    Outside of affecting the health of millions, arthritis has a profound, measurable economic and social impact in the United States. Despite all this, misunderstandings surround arthritis.

    Whether you’re well educated on arthritis or know virtually nothing, there are many ways to get involved in the fight. Here are five:

    1. Educate Yourself
    Arthritis is actually a group of diseases, with over 100 different types. Over 300,000 children have arthritis or a related rheumatic disease. Arthritis affects about approximately one in four adults.

    All of these facts are made publicly available by groups like the Arthritis Foundation. But misconceptions still survive. While you don’t need to have a doctor’s grasp of the condition, you will need to know the basics to spread awareness or provide support. The Arthritis Foundation is a great place to start your education, but you can also talk to medical professionals and people you know that are affected by arthritis to begin your education.

    2. Make a Donation
    There are several organizations working to spread awareness, provide resources to people with arthritis, and fund research for a cure. These groups welcome donations that help further their mission.

    The Arthritis Foundation is one of the highest profile groups, and its work ranges from advocacy at the federal and state government level to organizing local events and the annual Walk to Cure Arthritis. The Arthritis National Research Foundation primarily focuses on research for a cure, and the Arthritis Research and Education Fund supports researchers at the Johns Hopkins Arthritis Center.

    Your dollars can help these groups support people with arthritis and work toward a cure.

    3. Join Advocacy Groups
    Groups like CreakyJoints work to influence state and federal health and regulatory policies that affect those with arthritis. These groups provide a voice for patients and advocate for policies that affect access to treatment, care standards, and other issues. You can join the advocacy networks of national arthritis groups to share your story with media and legislators.

    4. Participate in a Fundraising Event
    There are many national and local events that support arthritis research, including walks, dinners, galas and more. Some events raise funds for general arthritis research, while others specialize in juvenile arthritis, alternative treatments, and other areas of focus. You can participate, donate funds, and even volunteer as a staff member at many of these events.

    5. Join a Support Group
    If you suffer from arthritis, it can be difficult to get others to relate to your experience. Joining a support group can help you get support, bond with people who have similar experiences, and widen your social circle. Attending meetings at a local support group can help you determine if support groups might be a good fit for you. They can also help you connect with local events, advocacy groups, and other activities to join the fight against arthritis.

  • Don't Neglect Your Pillows for a Deep Spring-Cleaning

    Posted on May 11, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    Spring-WebSpring has arrived, and its time to shake off the winter and embrace your inner neat freak. Spring-cleaning is the annual time to freshen up your yard, make your kitchen gleam, and vacuum up all the dust bunnies.

    But one home item that needs regular upkeep is often overlooked all year. We’re talking about your pillows: they can get absolutely filthy, even if it isn’t noticeable to the naked eye.

    This spring, don’t neglect your pillows - they’re one thing you’ll likely want as clean as possible.

    Why Should I Wash My Pillows?

    Your head and face come in direct contact with your pillows for hours at a time. Knowing that, it seems logical that most people would want to keep them spotless. But it’s a frequently neglected aspect of home cleaning.

    Over time, pillows collect all manners of unsavory materials, including dead skin cells, pet dander, and even fungi. What’s worse, these materials attract dust mites, for whom a pillow is simply one of the best environments in which to live. A 2011 study found that over one third of a two-year-old pillow’s weight is made up of dead dust mites and their feces, dead skin cells, and bacteria.

    Not only is this information gross, it could be affecting your health if you’re one of the 20 million Americans with a dust mite allergy.

    What Can I Do to Keep My Pillows Clean?

    Fortunately, keeping your pillows clean is fairly simple, as long as you can remember to perform regular upkeep.

    Replace Them

    Periodically, you should replace your old, dirty pillows with fresh, clean ones. Pillows should be replaced every year or two; this eliminates all the crud old pillows have been collecting and keeps you from sleeping on a flat, worn out pillow.

    Perform Regular Upkeep

    Regular maintenance can also help fight off pillow accumulation. You should fluff your pillows daily to help them maintain their proper shape and knock off the dust off. If you remove certain pillows when you sleep, don’t just toss them on the floor - find a clean place for them instead.

    You’ll also want to wash your pillowcases with the rest of your bedding, at least once every week or two.

    Wash Them Consistently

    Your pillows can stand a regular washing, at least once every few months. But before you toss your pillow in the washing machine, check the washing instructions. Many pillows require specific cleaning methods to maintain their shape and support.

    For instance, fiber pillows like the Tri-Core Cervical Pillow can be hand soaked and washed in warm water with laundry detergent, then air-dried. Foam pillows like the Core Memory Foam Cervical Pillow may need to be wiped with a damp cloth. Make sure to check the tags or instructions that come with your pillow, as washing it improperly could cause damage.

    When in doubt, you can check the Core Products page or give us a ring if you have questions on washing your Core Products pillow.

    Conclusion

    Spring-cleaning is the perfect time to replace your pillows or give them a deep clean, but this should be just one step in regular upkeep and maintenance. Your pillows won’t stop accumulating unwanted material the rest of the year, so regular cleaning is needed to keep them fresh, remove gross buildup and allergens, and keep your bedroom just as healthy and clean as the rest of your home after a cleaning binge.

  • How to Handle a Medical Bill You Can’t Afford

    Posted on May 2, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    medicalbillsHealthcare costs can quickly spiral out of control for people who had the simple misfortune of being sick or injured. If you can’t afford a large medical bill, you may be worried about the consequences of non-payment, which could involve a damaged credit score, calls from collections agencies, and even court.

    Luckily, you can try to negotiate your medical bills or get assistance to reduce the cost of your health care. Here’s what to do if you receive a medical bill you can’t afford.

    Start Planning Immediately

    One of the worst things you can do is ignore the problem or postpone dealing with it. Any attempt to reduce your medical bill will have a better chance of success if you begin right away. Medical bills have a waiting period of 180 days past due before they can be reported to credit bureaus and land on your credit report.

    This means you have some time to deal with the bill, but you’ll likely want to get started now because the process can take a while.

    Collect and Review Your Documents

    Medical bills often contain errors that overcharge you for medical procedures and supplies; In fact, one recent review by insurance companies found errors in over 90 percent of the bills they examined.  Unfortunately, your insurance companies and medical providers won’t hunt for mistakes, and the burden to find them falls on you.

    You’ll need to collect every document related to your medical treatment – including the itemized bill, insurance statements, and any other relevant information. If you don’t have itemized bills, you should request them from your health care provider. Then, you can review your itemized bill to make sure you aren’t being overcharged. You can also check your bills against your insurance plan to make sure your insurance covered all the services it was supposed to.

    This can be a daunting, complicated task, so you may wish to contact a medical billing advocate for help.

    Negotiate with the Health Care Provider

    Health care providers will often negotiate with patients who are unable to afford their bill - after all, they’d rather receive some payment than nothing. To negotiate, you’ll need to speak with the health care provider’s billing staff.

    Negotiation may take some persistence. If you’re having no luck through phone or email, you can send a formal request for negotiation through the mail (make sure to send copies to the health care provider’s management). If you can find lower prices for the services you received, you may want to use that information for leverage.

    Find Assistance

    If you’re in certain income brackets or your medical bill is causing financial hardship, you may be able to receive assistance from different sources. Many doctors, hospitals, and specialists have assistance programs or can recommend other resources.

    If your healthcare provider doesn’t offer aid, there are many government programs and charities that can help. You’ll have to do some research on available local, state, and federal resources.

    Negotiate with Collections

    If your medical bill becomes 180 days past due, it may land on your credit report and be sent to collections. This scenario should be avoided, because your credit will be affected. However, if you find yourself in this situation, you still may be able to negotiate. Most collections agencies have bought your debt at pennies on the dollar, so you may be able to negotiate a lower payment amount. If you go this route, try to negotiate an agreement (in writing) that removes the debt from your credit report as a condition of your payment.

  • Six Things That Can Sabotage Your Relaxation Time

    Posted on April 24, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    relaxRelaxation doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Some people can begin to unwind as soon as they get off work, while others stay keyed up and stressed straight through bedtime. We also relax differently, and some may want to sit in silence while others would prefer going out for a group activity. But no matter how you approach relaxation, it’s important and has proven benefits for your physical and mental well-being.

    If relaxation frequently eludes you, you might be unwittingly engaging in behavior that’s sabotaging your attempts to relax. Here are six things that might be sabotaging your relaxation time.

    Mobile Devices

    Your phone, laptops and tablets are important devices you use to connect with others and get work done. But the very nature of their mobility makes it hard to put them down. Several studies of mobile phone and device usage have suggested that constantly checking our phone disrupts our sleep and makes us more anxious, stressed and unhappy during our supposed leisure time.

    Now we’re not suggesting you chuck out your smartphone and go live in a cave. Rather, you may want to take short breaks from your devices for short periods of time, especially when you want to relax. You can turn off your notifications and leave your phone in another room - it will still be there when you’re ready to pick it back up.

    Work Notifications

    Another side effect of mobile devices and work laptops is that you’re never truly away from work. Even if you aren’t working, email notifications on your device may be reminding you of that upcoming deadline or meeting when you’re at home trying to relax. Turning off work related notifications when you get home can help you unwind and forget about work for a while.

    Overloaded Schedules

    If your calendar is packed with obligations, deadlines and activities, you might be stressing yourself out and denying yourself much needed time to relax. Consider removing unnecessary items from that overloaded calendar. Reducing your commitments isn’t selfish if it helps keep you sane and happy, so you may want to try to avoid spreading yourself too thin.

    Caffeine

    Caffeine is extremely useful when you need to wake up and take charge of your day. But when it’s time to relax, caffeine can keep you wired and harm your ability to unwind. Now, some people swear by coffee as a way to relax, and we won’t necessarily argue. But if you’re feeling jittery and wired at the end of the day, it might be time to cut out that afternoon cup of coffee.

    Tense Muscles

    Even when you’re ready to relax, a tense body can prevent you from doing so. If your neck and shoulders are still tight from hunching over your computer screen or your body is still tense from a tough day, you may have difficulty relaxing. There are many ways to reduce muscle tension that include exercise, massage, stretching, and improving your posture. The right way to relax your body will vary, but loosening up physically can help you do the same mentally.

    Sedentary Lifestyle

    If you rarely exercise, your sedentary lifestyle may be preventing you from properly relieving stress. Exercise releases natural chemicals and endorphins in your body that fight stress and promote happiness. These effects last long after exercise is finished. Exercise can also tire you out, helping you relax and get a good night’s sleep.

  • Five Beginner Digital Marketing Tips for Massage Therapists

    Posted on April 13, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    massageBut to bring in new clients and engage existing ones, massage therapists may need to expand their digital marketing efforts. If you’re looking to launch or increase your online marketing presence, you may feel lost on how to move forward. The trick is to start slow, without overwhelming yourself. Here are a few tips on how to get started.

    Create a Business Website

    If you don’t already have a website to promote your massage business, creating one should be your first priority. It doesn’t have to be complicated or have dozens of web pages. This is simply a space to introduce yourself and your business to the world. You’ll probably want to include a short bio detailing your professional experience, a description of your services and pricing, and standard business details like location and hours of operation.

    Your website can also be the central hub for other marketing activities: you can link to social media accounts, collect client information, and schedule online bookings.

    You can hire a web designer to help you or even build your website yourself. Several website building platforms like Wix and Squarespace provide drag-and-drop functionality you can use to build a website in a matter of hours.

    Start Basic Email Marketing

    When people visit you online or in person, you should be collecting their contact info through a signup form on your website or a client intake form at your place of business. Every email address you gather is a potential source of future business.
    Once you have a list of contacts, you can start promoting your business via email. You can start simple, with a monthly newsletter or sales promotion. Whatever your message, you can use email marketing to position yourself as an expert, stay on your client’s radar, and encourage repeat business.

    Begin Personalizing Your Messages

    Your contacts are far more likely to respond to personalized messages than generic ones. Once you’ve been using email marketing for a while, you should take a look at the data you have on your contacts and start creating segments to send personalized content (many basic email marketing tools provide this functionality). Offers can be personalized in many different ways:

    • Send a birthday email with a massage discount
    • Offer discounts on products your clients have purchased in the past
    • Send a thank you email with important information to new customers

    Of course, you’ll need data on your clients and contacts to effectively send them personalized messages. Make sure you’re collecting the information you need when you connect with your clients and contacts so you can better customize your communications.

    Set Up Online Bookings

    Clients are more likely to book massages if they can do so easily. You don’t want to lose appointments because your client was too busy to give you a call or they couldn’t figure out how to book online. By setting up online reservations, you can make booking easy for your clients and reduce the time you have to spend managing your calendar.
    You can set up a booking system on your website, or use popular online booking platforms like MassageBook (which has free and paid plans with a variety of features, including marketing tools).

    Set Up Social Media Pages

    Social media can help you connect with your audience and online influencers. Try not to spread yourself too thin by signing up for all the social media channels; instead, pick a few to start with and go from there. Try to choose the platforms that are right for your audience - for instance, your business might be more appropriate for Facebook and Instagram than LinkedIn.

    You can use your social media accounts to provide coupons or discounts, share news and content, and connect with other massage experts. You should try to include both visual (picture and video) content and text - the written word alone isn’t enough for social media.

    In Closing

    Digital marketing for small businesses doesn’t have to be complicated, and it’s important to start somewhere. The internet is an important tool that can help you find new clients, manage existing clients, and otherwise lend your business legitimacy.

  • Six Exercise-Related Tips to Prevent Future Knee Problems

    Posted on April 5, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    kneeproblemsKnee problems are an ever-present reality for millions of Americans, especially for older people whose knees have seen a lifetime’s worth of wear and tear. But knee problems can occur in younger adults as well, especially among the overweight and very active.

    Strenuous exercise - like team sports - is often associated with knee problems. But there are many exercise-related strategies you can implement to reduce your risk of knee pain and knee problems as you get older.  Here are six exercise-related ways to prevent future knee problems.

    Maintain a Healthy Weight

    Extra weight can lead to a variety of knee problems and increase your chances of developing osteoarthritis. The heavier you are, the more pressure you put on your knees every time you take a step. Shedding pounds or maintaining a healthy weight will put less stress on your knees and help them stay healthy.

    Build Leg Strength

    The muscles surrounding your knee can provide support and do take off some of the pressure as you run, jump, and climb stairs. But to provide support, your surrounding muscles must be sufficiently powerful. Strong quads, hamstrings and calves can make a huge difference in the amount of pressure put on your knees. Both aerobic exercises and weight training can strengthen leg muscles; if you need advice on how to best build up your leg strength, consult a physician and/or physical trainer.

    Warm Up Before Workouts

    If you’re committed to building leg strength and maintaining a healthy weight, you may be hitting the gym or the great outdoors to get in some workouts. Make sure you’re warming up, stretching and engaging in light exercise, before you go full throttle. Warming up properly will reduce your risk of injury.

    Gradually Increase Workout Intensity

    Don’t suddenly increase the intensity of your exercise without giving your body time to adjust. This is a common cause of injury. Instead, build up your workout intensity gradually to avoid knee pain and other injuries.

    Use Low Impact Exercise if Necessary

    It’s commonly said that high impact exercise like running puts a lot of wear and tear on your knees, leading to future knee issues.  This isn’t necessarily true, as some studies have found that frequent runners are no more likely to have arthritis than non-runners.

    However, if you are already overweight or have bad knees, you may wish to stick to low impact exercise. Swimming, rowing, and elliptical workouts are all fantastic options to break a sweat without affecting your knees.

    Wear Protection

    If you have a job that’s tough on your knees or play sports such as roller-skating or soccer, make sure to wear knee pads. Knee pads act as shock absorbers and cushion the impact that occurs when your knee comes into contact with a hard surface.

    In Closing

    Your knees may feel great today, but that doesn’t mean they’re invulnerable forever. There’s no guarantee that you’re safe from knee problems later in life. Done properly, exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight and protect your knees, reducing your risk of knee problems as you get older.

  • Product Spotlight: Performance Wrap™ Knee Support

    Posted on March 24, 2017 by Core Products

    kne6440-env-male-17-0228By Brian Acton

    In this week’s Product Spotlight, we’re focusing on the Performance Wrap Knee Support, designed to help provide knee stability and support for knee problems.

    While there are many knee supports on the market, the materials and design of the Performance Wrap Knee Support make it a unique product that’s suitable for both everyday use and strenuous athletic activity, even water sports.

    Can the Performance Wrap Knee help you tackle your knee issues and keep you on top of your game? Read on to find out.

    Why Should I Use It?

    Your knee is made up of many important structures, any of which can be injured. In fact, injuries often involve more than one component of the structural building blocks within the knee.

    Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. In addition, the knee may “catch” or “lock up.”  Many knee injuries can also cause instability, a feeling that the knee is giving way1, or unable to support the body, especially on uneven surfaces.

    Patellar tracking disorder, a condition in which the kneecap moves out of place as the leg bends and straightens, can cause severe pain and swelling, and may even cause the knee to lose stability. Overweight and athletic people are particularly susceptible to this condition.

    The Performance Wrap Knee supplements weakened structures of the knee and can assist with patellar tracking, helping improve stability and increase comfort.

    What’s Special About It?

    Originally designed by a professional surfer suffering from knee instability, the Performance Wrap Knee Support is designed to stay in place during sustained exposure to water. The neoprene material in the inner section of the knee support features a smooth surface which conforms to the knee and hugs your skin snugly even when soaking wet. This makes it perfect for water sports, triathletes switching between wet and dry events, or any activity that causes perspiration.

    The wraparound design is easy to put on and adjust, with no need to remove shoes. In addition, users won’t have to slide the support over a sore knee, as with a sleeve design.

    Finally, the popliteal cutout in the back (an open space for the back of the knee) is cool, comfortable, and eliminates painful bunching and pinching of the support at the back of the knee.

    How Does it Work?

    With any knee injury, swelling will usually vary and the proper fit of a support may change several times throughout any day. The one size fits most, wrap around design of this support fits snugly above and below the knee and can be easily adjusted to accommodate for an increase or decrease in swelling.

    The unique, Crisscross Tensioning System is easily adjusted to provide support which enhances patellar tracking, improves stability, and provides compression for support.

    The Performance Wrap enables people to get back to doing the things they love: running, jumping, swimming, and otherwise engaging in any activity that requires healthy knee mobility.

    The Core Products Advantage

    The Performance Wrap Knee Support provides support for many knee issues, and is an excellent choice for many athletic activities. We’re confident in its ability to provide relief and reliable support, and we back it up with a one year warranty and a 90 day satisfaction guarantee.

    Do you want to find the right product for your specific knee issues? You can always drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help!

  • Product Spotlight: Core® Pain Remedy™ Plus Wireless TENS

    Posted on March 9, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

    pain-remedy-blogThe Core® Pain Remedy™ Plus Wireless TENS is one of our more unique pain relief products. With two models available, the Core Pain Remedy Plus Wireless TENS (which stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator) is an affordable and versatile technology that can help relieve pain.

    The product is an over-the-counter system that uses electrical pulses to soothe sore or aching muscles. Its versatility, wireless design and size allow it to be used discreetly just about anywhere on the body, and it can be stored anywhere in the home or taken on the go. Read on to find out how TENS can provide pain relief and why the Core Pain Remedy Plus is a great product for muscle soreness.

    Who Is It For?

    The Core Pain Remedy Plus is used to temporarily relieve muscle pain and soreness. This soreness could be the result of everyday work, exercise or injury. The unit can potentially help anyone who suffers from muscle soreness, and is suitable for around-the-house use or on the go.

    If you’re looking to ease pain and soreness, and unwind after a long, strenuous day, the Core Pain Remedy Plus can help.

    How Does Electrical Stimulation Help?

    Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation works by delivering small pulses of electric current via electrodes to the nerves beneath the skin. These pulses activate the underlying nerves, and muscle pain or soreness is temporarily relieved. There is no definitive scientific consensus on why this method can be effective, but there are two general theories.

    The gate control theory proposes that there is a gate mechanism in the central nervous system through which pain signals must pass. If that gate is blocked, those signals are prevented from reaching your brain. According to the theory, electric pulses close the gate and block the pain signals from traveling to the brain.

    The other theory is that electrical pulses cause the body to release its own natural pain relievers - endorphins - that contribute to pain relief. Many studies have shown an increase in endorphin levels after the use of low-frequency electrical stimulation.

    How Does the Core Pain Remedy Plus Work?

    The Core Pain Remedy Plus combines rechargeable receivers with snap style electrodes that adhere to the body and deliver electrical pulses to stimulate the nerves and block pain signals. You simply apply the adhesive pads to the affected area - back, arms, legs, etc. - and then use a wireless control unit to run preprogrammed treatment modes and adjust intensity levels.

    The pre-programmed treatment time lasts 45 minutes. With the two included receivers and dual channel controller, you can simultaneously target two areas of the body and even run separate preprogrammed modes and intensity levels for each receiver. The unit comes with four different modes (each appropriate for different areas of the body) and 20 intensity levels, so you can experiment to find the program and intensity that’s appropriate for your pain.

    The rechargeable batteries eliminate the need to swap batteries. The unit is also small and very portable, so it’s easy to store or take on the road when needed. Finally, you have the option of selecting a 4-pack of 2” x 2” round electrodes or 1-pack of the 3”x5” body electrode to best target the area of pain.

    Why Choose Core Products?

    The Core Pain Remedy Plus provides fast, effective, drug free pain relief, and can be one part of an overall routine that may also include stretching and massage. Oftentimes, portable TENS require wires that run from the controller to the electrodes, but our product is wireless and can be discreetly worn under clothing. It’s exceedingly easy to use, and because we’re confident in its quality we back it up with a one-year warranty.

    Still wondering if the TENS can help with your specific muscle pain? Feel free to drop us a line and we can talk!

  • Product Spotlight: The Tri-Core® Cervical Support Pillow

    Posted on March 2, 2017 by Core Products

    By Brian Acton

Designed to promote a natural sleeping posture, the Tri-Core can help relieve neck pain, resulting in a comfortable night’s sleep. Its simple design and level of support make it a natural choice for customers looking to improve their sleeping posture.

    That’s why we’ve chosen the Tri-Core for our first product spotlight. Read on to learn more about what makes the Tri-Core special.

    Who Should Use a Tri-Core Pillow?

    The Tri-Core is primarily used by our customers to help relieve muscle soreness and neck pain resulting from improper sleeping positions, which often stem from injuries, medical conditions or simply bad sleeping techniques.

    The Tri-Core helps with these issues in two ways: it helps corrects sleeping posture and helps maintain proper posture by supporting the neck in its natural position. The Tri-Core can help with neck pain, headaches, whiplash injuries, arthritis, and even snoring in some cases.

    It’s also a great pillow for those who have never had problems with sleeping posture. If you just want a supportive pillow that helps avoid future neck problems, this pillow is a great option. There are several firmness levels and pillow sizes to accommodate the needs of every sleeper.

    Even if you frequently roll from your back to your side, the Tri-Core supports the neck. The sides of the pillow are recommended for side sleeping.

    How Does It Work?

    Traditional pillows often have the same thickness throughout the entire pillow. As a result, the neck is often improperly supported. The Tri-Core addresses this issue with its uniquely designed neck rolls and indented pillow center. The neck rolls on top and bottom provide a more customized fit for different sized necks.  These rolls support the neck rather than let it bend or slope at awkward angles. The indented center is crafted to comfortably cradle the head while sleeping..

    How Can It Help Me?

    For customers with symptoms resulting from injury or improper sleeping techniques, the Tri-Core helps provide proper support when sleeping. This can help people regain proper neck posture as injured tissue or muscles heal. At this initial stage, users might find the pillow uncomfortable; adjustment can take a few weeks of use.

    The Tri-Core also helps maintain proper cervical alignment by sustaining the neck in its natural posture. Many people discover that once the normal curvature of the neck is restored, they crave the comfort of maximum support.
