How I treat lower back and hip pain without a prescription at home and on the go
Oska Pulse has improved my lower back and hip pain in ways I could have never imagined, especially since my doctors had said that it would never improve.
I invite you to read my entire series to discover the improvements I have experienced. But today I want to help those who have recently purchased an Oska Pulse for themselves and those who are still not sure how to use it if they do decide to try this alternative therapy for themselves with tips on treating their hip and lower back pain.

The most important thing to keep in mind when treating your pain with Oska Pulse is that like with any therapy it requires patience and daily use. The improvements I have had in regards to my lower back and hips did not happen overnight. In fact, they took me by surprise because they were actually a result of my treating another nearby pain source.
How often you use it is up to you, but if you are dealing with a long term pain source I recommend starting with a minimum of 10 sessions per day, EVERY day.
Oska Pulse is easy to use at home and on the go. There are no sticky patches or wires to get tangled up in. All you need to do is turn it on and go about your life. However, I have found that I get the best results by placing it directly on or as close as possible to my pain source. With that said there are ways, I use my Oska Pulse to treat my lower back and hip pain at home and on the go.
While seated for a long period of time
If seated on a soft chair I place my device on the curve of my back. For harder surfaces, I place it on my side next to my hips. Click here to see a demonstration of the distance Oska Pulse treatments covers.
While standing, walking, and just going about my day
Each device comes with a handy strap which enables the user to continue treatment while going about their daily life.
If my day consists of going from moving around to sitting on my comfy recliner I wear the strap around my waist with my Oska Pulse placed directly above my sacrum. Or if I will be driving or sitting in a not so comfy chair I place the device in front, either on or near my belly button.
As you saw in the demonstration mentioned above although the device is not directly on my spine, it is still treating it. By placing it where I can see it, I am less likely to forget to turn it back on after each treatment.
With the strap, I can wear my device above or under my clothing
While on the go
Let’s face it, as cute as our glowing blue pain relief device is it doesn’t always go with our outfits. Or we may not want to light up the theater when the lights go down while watching a movie or play. Not wanting to break or damage my Oska Pulse was another excuse I used, in the beginning, to not use it as often as I should have.
To remedy all of these issues I do one of the following. The first is to place my device in my purse! I prefer cross body purses as they can be placed to target the same area as when I use the strap. However, any purse will do because it hangs by my side and again like you saw in the demonstration my back and hips still undergo treatment.
Placing my device in a backpack also works, but it is more of a hassle to turn it back on than if in a purse. When I don’t want to carry a purse or lug around a backpack, pants with deep pockets work just as well but can be uncomfortable when seated if the pockets aren’t loose enough.
As I stated earlier, using Oska Pulse takes time and patience. It also takes dedication. The device runs in 90-minute increments. And while I love that the beep that signals the end of treatment is not loud, it does require that I pay attention to it.
When worn or placed where I can view it, I have trained myself to look at it often so that I can hit the button and continue treatment. When placed in my purse, pocket, or under my clothing I set reminders on my phone, because wearing or having it with me all day and not turning it back on won’t do my body any good.
