Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to you pain filled back immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the mucles and nerves in your lower back. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.
The King Brand ColdCure® Back Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics (Home use is also very common). The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in soft tissue injuries.
Improving on the RICE standard of injury care, ColdCure® wraps are specifically designed to operate at refrigeration (not freezer) temperatures. This eliminates the potential of damage to the skin on your back that is associated with all freezer wrap treatments. This improved standard is called RCCE® (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to the patient and provide pain relief while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage on your back caused by alternative devices which use freezer charged cold packs.
The oversized cold packs in all ColdCure® wraps contain specially formulated gel with more cooling power per lb than standard wraps. This allows for longer treatment durations and periods of pain relief without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means better control of swelling and pain and less handling of the injured area. These all result in a better treatment for your lower back pain. Each ColdCure™ wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations in the patient's home for easy access to safe pain relief.
Like the BFST® Wraps, ColdCure® Back wraps are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene wraps. The gel pack is specifically designed for optimal coverage of your lower back to provide optimal comfort. In order to accomplish this we also use many different types of gel packs in our various wraps. The reason for this is simple, the back, the elbow, and the knee are all shaped very differently and each one deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body.
The ColdCure® wraps use Rigid Gel technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area even when under pressure. Yet it is still soft and molds to the body. ColdCure® wraps are unique and of such a higher quality and performance than any other wrap there really is no comparison. Again, like the BFST® wrap, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The wrap and unwrap design allows for use on either a lower or upper back injury. If you have serious pain resulting from a lower back injury, you need serious treatment there's only one treatment effective enough and it's a ColdCure® wrap.
