If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I am a fitness fanatic, and often that causes pain. I do have a heat pad, and also freezer bags to use, but neither work that good. Therefore I wanted to try the Foxxgel Hot & Cold Therapy Gel Pack.
For hot relief it goes in the microwave for 30 seconds, and then le
t it cool for 30 seconds before applying it to the area. Depending on the power of the microwave you might need to do it for a few seconds more. Mine is 1,100 watts, and that works out good for me.
From the website: ‘HOT & COLD THERAPY GEL PACK – Reusable Freezable Microwavable for Injuries and Pain Relief – Adjustable Elastic Velcro Strap for Neck Shoulder Back Arm Wrist Hand Thigh Knee Calf Ankle Foot’.
My pain is usually in my left shoulder from boxing. It feels really good with the heat. I find it difficult to apply a heat pad to it. The Gel Pack has straps with Velcros, so you can adjust it as you need to.
For cold therapy it goes in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours, and can stay in as long as you wish. Before use, wrap it in a towel, and then apply it to the area that needs relief.
I have tried both, and they work great.
I did receive this product at a discounted price, and wanted to share my experience with you.
