Experiencing any kind of injure or pain can be miserable. Have your heard of Warmables Hot'N Cold Packs yet? The Europeans used cherry pits to keep warm for centuries. The packs were made of simple cloth, filled with cherry pits, that were saved over time. They were heated on rocks next to the fire and were used on cold winter nights. Later they were heated on the hearth or ceramic wood stoves. The Warmables are usually heated in the microwave or placed in the freezer for a pleasant cooling effect.
Get Relief, With The Warmables Hot and Cold PacksFor this review, I received one Warmables Hot and Cold Pack! I found it very interesting that the pack was filled with cherry pits. I've used it on my shoulder and it worked very well. It was easy to drape over my shoulder and I love that it didn't slide off. I don't have a microwave, so I haven't tired using it when, it's hot. The best thing about the Warmables Pack is that it's machine washable and you can dry it in the dryer. I just got an idea, if you don't have a microwave, throw it into the dryer to get hot.
The best time to use a cold pack is when you get a sprain, pulled a muscle, muscle spasms, bruises, insect bites, arthritis and other aches you may have. Cold packs work great at reducing the swelling and
easing inflammation. Only apply cold packs up to 20 minutes every two to four hours.
Using a heat pack can increase the blood flow to injured tissue. Hot packs can reduce joint stiffness, pain and muscle spasms. Heat packs can ease pain in both acute and chronic injuries. Heat packs should be applied for 20-30 minutes at a time.
Some doctors will advise you to use cold packs for the first couple of days, then switch to heat packs. Even some physical therapists will recommend alternating between heat and cold for painful muscle spasms, chronic problems or arthritis.
The Warmables Hot and Cold Pack is pretty awesome and I would recommend it!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
