Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to your enflamed nerve immediately reduces the risk of further intense pain due to the swelling. 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 skin damage during treatment associated with all freezer wraps. This improved standard is called RCCE® (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to your back and used while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage from alternative devices which use cold packs charged in a freezer.
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 without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means more pain relief, better control of swelling and less handling of the enflamed, pain filled nerve. Each ColdCure™ wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability to extend treatment durations in the patient's home.
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 back and Sciatic nerve which will allow for maximum coverage with minimum pain. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps because it's clear that the back, elbow, amd knee are all very different and each one deserves a custom designed pack to work the best to relieve your pain. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body and consequently no other wrap works as effectively.
The ColdCure® wraps use Rigid Gel technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area even under pressure so when you sit there is no need to worry about pain if you lean back. Despite this rigidness, the gel it is very soft and malleable so that the maximum amount of comfort possible can be provided. Again, like the BFST® wrap, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro straps that guarantees the perfect fit that you need. If you have serious pain resulting from Sciatica, you know that you need a serious treatment method and there's only one good enough - ColdCure® wraps.
