Our two-in-one reusable hot and cold pack can be heated or chilled, depending on the type of injury or pain you need to treat. The flexible treatment pack moulds around the body when hot or cold, providing targeted pain relief and maximum coverage at the source of the pain.
Hot and cold packs are a drug-free way to treat a wide range of soft tissue injuries or sports injuries or use in conjunction with other pain relief medication to help further reduce swelling and relieve pain.
As a cold pack, our reusable hot and cold compress can be used to reduce swelling by slowing down blood circulation to the injured area. A cold compress can also be applied to certain types of sports injuries, toothaches, bruises, headaches and insect bites to help with inflammation and pain relief.
When warmed up, our reusable hot and cold compress helps to increase blood flow to the injured or painful area. A heat pack can help relieve pain and stiffness from various aches and pains, rheumatism, arthritic pain, backache and period pains.
