with a Cold One
Deep-Penetrating Back Therapy Wrap
your back ache and cause you pain most of the time? Doctors and
physical therapists recommend ice and compression to:
reduce back pain
relieve sore, strained, or overused muscles in the lower back.
The Back Ice Therapy Wrap combines both cold and compression in a single,
easy to use wrap that can be worn over or under clothes, with NO ICY MESS.Typical
users of the Back Ice Therapy Wrap are those suffering from a back sprain,
a sore back, backache, or back surgery.
The Back Ice Therapy Wrap
is placed in a home freezer for about 2 hours to freeze the sewn-in gels.
The frozen wrap is then applied and tightened to achieve compression and drive
the cold deep into the soft tissues surrounding the spine and spinal muscles.
The wrap will drive cold for 15-20 minutes and lower the internal tissue temperature
by 10 degrees or more. Immediate relief of pain is obtained and lasts for
The reduction of soft
tissue temperature does 2 things. It blocks the pain receptors to give
immediate pain relief. It also reduces inflammation of the sore and tender
tissues and muscles. We have conducted Thermal Imaging of sore backs before
applying the wrap, immediately after removing the wrap, and 20 minutes
after removing the wrap. The results are truly amazing.(see
graphic images of the results)
Before applying the wrap,
the imaging shows high temperature in the inflammed areas. After applying
the wrap for 10 minutes, the entire area previously covered by the wrap records
significant temperature reduction of the deep tissues. AND 20 minutes later,
there is virtually no evidence of inflammation as previously recorded.
Why is this important
to you? Well, inflammation is a visual indicator of pain and swelling. As
long as inflammation is present, so is pain and tenderness. Remove the inflammation
and you remove the cause of the pain. Application of the wrap in its frozen
state several times a day will stop the inflammation and stop the pain. Long
term, the body will use its energy to heal the injured tissues instead of
leaking blood and fluid into the injured area (inflammation).
