CARLSBAD, Calif., Aug. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Oska Wellness, a technology company committed to developing consumer health and wellness products, announced today that the company will donate $10.00 for each Oska Pulse sold to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association during "Pain Awareness Month," September 1 – 30. Oska's Pain Awareness Month contribution is in partnership with FSAstore.com/HSAstore.com, the only e-commerce sites stocked exclusively with eligible products for flexible spending account (FSA) and health savings account (HSA) users.
"We are thrilled to partner with FSAstore.com and HSAstore.com to participate in this worthwhile endeavor," said Greg Houlgate, Founder, Chief Business Development and Product Officer for Oska Wellness. "Our partnership with FSAstore.com and HSAstore.com makes it easy for people with chronic pain to find the Oska Pulse at these leading online health retail outlets, while benefitting the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association."
"For people with serious chronic pain, we are seeing a paradigm shift towards preventing and treating chronic pain with self-management tools as part of an overall pain management program in doctor's offices," said Jan Chambers, president of National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. "An effective toolkit helps patients achieve and maintain a higher quality of life and function with less pain. As well as research, a lot of interest in Oska from NFCPA members helps us identify up and coming effective treatments."
Chronic pain affects more than 100 million people each year (according to the CDC) and is a contributing factor to the country's growing opioid epidemic. A variety of over-the-counter pain management products are eligible for purchase with an FSA or HSA, giving consumers flexibility in how they care for their health and manage their health care dollars.
"People are often surprised by the fact that many pain management products are eligible for purchase with a tax-free healthcare account, like an FSA or HSA," said Jeremy Miller, CEO and founder of FSAstore.com/HSAstore.com. "The Oska Pulse is one of our most popular drug-free pain relief product offerings, and a strong option for account holders who wish to try a premium wellness product with their pre-tax dollars."
Oska Pulse is a safe, easy-to-use, portable and wearable health technology product designed to help reduce muscle stiffness, temporarily relieve minor pain and increase mobility for people who have acute or chronic pain. Oska Pulse is available for purchase at FSAstore.com, HSAstore.com, Amazon.com, and www.oskawellness.com or ask your doctor.
