Osteoarthritis

In this small study, 18 participants with osteoarthritis received massage therapy on their knee for 8 weeks. Study participants noted the massage therapy helped reduce knee pain and improve their quality of life.

Massage therapy applies deep pressure to osteoarthritic joints, so it’s possible that similar benefits may be experienced when using a Kocoono™ weighted blanket. 

Chronic Pain

In one small study, researchers found that starting with light pressure, later gradually increasing to moderate pressure, and then using deep pressure during massage therapy may reduce pain reflexes in those with chronic pain conditions.

This indicates the extra pressure of a Kocoono™ weighted blanket may help keep the legs in place and reduce feelings of pain in chronic pain conditions.



Medical procedures

A 2016 study experimented with using weighted blankets on participants undergoing wisdom tooth extraction. The weighted blanket participants experienced lower anxiety symptoms than the control group.

The researchers performed a similar follow-up study on adolescents using a weighted blanket during a molar extraction. Those results also found less anxiety with the use of a weighted blanket.

Since medical procedures tend to cause anxiety symptoms like increased heart rate, using weighted blankets may be beneficial in calming those symptoms.

 

Helps Manage OCD

By using deep touch pressure stimulation therapy, weighted blankets may help boost serotonin and ease the severity of OCD

Eases the symptoms in PTSD

Various forms of therapy can help ease these symptoms, which often include insomnia and depression. In studies, researchers have observed that weighted blanket therapy lowers blood pressure, reduces pulse rates and helps 63 percent of study participants feel less anxious.
