Why use TheraFlex for Pain Control?
Pain and muscle spasms are a common
responses to injury. Tendons and ligaments are tissues that
connect muscles and bones to each other. These are made from
protein called collagen, normally collagen is flexible and acts
like a "rubber band": and stretches when tension is applied
and returns to its normal length when the tension is
released. However, when the tendons and ligaments are stressed
too far, it tears. In this tearing process, blood vessels are
torn and blood cells and fluid escape into the spaces among the
muscle fibres. This is sometimes but not always visible on the
surface of the skin as a swollen, bruised area.
When Cold Therapy is applied to the area it decreases the flow of this fluid into the tissues and slows the release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. Cold also decreases feeling in an area by reducing the sensitivity of the nerve endings. Cold therapy also decreases the activity of cells to reduce swelling and internal bleeding at the site of acute injury. Cooling the deep tissue also reduces muscle spasm by reducing the muscle's ability to maintain a contraction.
TheraFlex maintains an even temperature over
the entire pack and stays flexible even when frozen. When the
pack is bent to fit it maintains it's thickness no matter how
severe the bend. TheraFlex Gel is completely safe, it contains no
liquids or dyes, is non-toxic, colourless, and odourless, but has
a bittering agent to deter ingestion.
TheraFlex Gel is also biodegradable
and the packs are re-reusable. This new gel chemistry is
manufactured using 100% pharmaceutical grade materials. Unlike
other thin, watery Gels & Felts> that will leak and saddlebag TheraFlex
retain their thickness no matter how severe the bend is, it is
formulated as a thick, rubber-like gel making it ideal for
compression wraps that will not leak or spill even if the outer
wrapper is punctured or torn.
TheraFlex can be soft frozen in any domestic refrigerator / freezer. This unique gel formula will retain cold longer than most other cold packs currently on the market. The Cold Pack's Gel is formulated as a thick, rubber-like gel making it ideal for compression wraps that will not leak or spill even if the outer wrapper is punctured or torn.
