    Also perfect for soreness. Makes intenese workouts less painful the days after.

    At the age of 45, I was recently diagnosed with “premature arthritis” in my right knee (most likely the result of a serious injury to the area early in life). Besides getting injections to replace the natural balance of fluid in my knee, I’ve been actively treating my knee using the ice/heat therapy after doing any sort of workout. It really does help ease the pain and keeps the swelling down as well! Thanks for having a great giveaway!

    My grade school track coach taught us about alternating ice and heat for injury or just plain soreness.
    It works for me!

    Actually ice and heat do pretty much the same thing; they both cause vasodilation in a round about way. Ice causes initial vasoconstriction and as the tissue’s temperature decreases, the body will “protect” itself if you will and after 7-10 min vasodilation occurs. So same as heat; only different. 🙂
