|Has your doctor recommended Hot and Cold Therapy to bring pain relief for your arthritis, gout in the hand, tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome? The Good2Go™ Hot & Cold Therapy Arthritis Pain Treatment Mitt, 8" x 13",holds one 6” x 9” gel pack on each side, thus surrounding the painful hand and wrist with soothing, effective pain relief. Both gel packs can be either heated in the microwave or frozen, which gives you the ability to alternate between hot and cold therapy ----- AND all in one unit.
The soft deep-pile fleece lining of the multi-ply cover is comfortable and soothing next to tender skin. The vapor-barrier layer of the cover is designed to send the moist heat or cold toward the body, not out into the air. This Good2Go™ Hot & Cold Therapy Arthritis Pain Treatment Mitt is large enough to cover almost any size hand. The elastic and Velcro® strap holds the pack securely in place, so that, if you want to, you are good-to-go!
The 6” x 9” reusable gel packs, enclosed in latex-free vinyl, contain the patented non-toxic gel that is a mixture of recycled plant cellulose and salt water. This combination allows the Cold Pack to freeze quickly, but, because of the salt water, remains pliable AND retains its low temperature longer for maximum therapeutic benefit. The gel pack also heats quickly in the microwave.
WHY HOT & COLD THERAPY?Of course, you should follow the instructions of your personal physician, but usually doctors recommend the RICE protocol (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) for the first 24-48 hours to treat an injury or to aid rehabilitation after surgery. After an injury, your body automatically reacts by swelling at the injured site. Application of Cold Therapy at this time helps to slow down the swelling and stimulate the blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin, letting your body begin to heal. The use of Cold Therapy can also relieve chronic pain.
When it comes to treating chronic pain, even Rheumatoid Arthritis, medical professionals know that alternating cold therapy with heat therapy is also very effective in stimulating blood circulation, reducing swelling, and easing pain. Physical therapists know that using gentle heat therapy in the morning can help expand your range of motion, as well as relieving joint pain and stiffness.
Limit the length of Cold Therapy to 20 or 30 minutes and wait until your skin is back to a normal temperature before starting another session.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not use Cold Therapy if you are suffering with Reynaud’s Syndrome, paralysis, or areas of impaired sensation (nerve damage).
