Typical users of the ColdOne®
back wrap are those suffering from a back
sprain, back pain, a sore back, backache, or back
surgery. Doctors and physical therapists
recommend ice and compression to reduce back pain and
swelling in sore, strained or overused muscles,
especially in the lower back.
The back 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 to stop or reduce back pain. The wrap
will drive cold for 15-20 minutes and lower the
internal tissue temperature by 10 degrees or more.
Immediate relief of back pain is obtained and lasts
for several hours.
The reduction of soft tissue temperature does 2
things. It blocks the pain receptors to give immediate
back 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. Before applying the wrap,
the imaging shows high temperature in the inflamed
areas. After applying the back wrap for 10 minutes,
the entire area 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? Inflammation
is a visual indicator of back pain and swelling. As
long as inflammation is present, so is back pain and
tenderness. Remove the inflammation and
you remove the cause of the back pain. Application of
the wrap in its frozen state several times a day will
stop the inflammation and stop the back 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 and pain).
Our breathable neoprene wrap with re-freezable
inner bladder keeps you dry and comfortable while
providing soothing cold therapy. Unique construction
helps retain body heat after gels are unfrozen. The
back wrap relieves back pain, swelling and stiffness
when gels are frozen.
wraps are constructed with an outer layer of nitrogen
blown neoprene, a middle layer of sewn in refreezable
gels, and an inner layer of rubberized linen. All
three layers stretch together to provide compression
you can adjust to your comfort level.
The wrap provides 20
minutes of cold/ice therapy plus compression to reduce
swelling and back pain from injury or reoccurring
