If there is one thing I know about, it’s injuries! I’ve had knee surgery twice, a full rotator cuff repair, hallux rigidus, and a pulled hamstring. I also have 4 boys who have their fair share of aches and pains as well. When I went to look for the best cold compression therapy for injuries and sore mucles, I came across übertherm.
What is übertherm?
übertherm is a line of cold compression pain relief products. They created the Ice Pillow – a fabric-like composite of multiple conducting and insulating layers in just the right combination. When applying traditional ice to the injury, one runs the risk of suffering nerve damage, skin burns, and even frostbite from aggressive icing. Freezing could also slow recovery or even potentially make it worse. When freezing, it could lead to sharp ice crystal forming in muscles and tendons and injuring cell membranes.
With übertherm, the material slows the icing experience down and makes it very comfortable. The best part is there is less risk of ice crystal formation in and around the injured cells so it is safer and allows for more efficient healing.
Why I love übertherm for cold compression therapy:
The wraps are super comfortable to wear and stay in place. I have literally piles of ice packs in my freezer that only work if I’m sitting in place. Their wraps are so easy to wear, even my 9 year old took over the foot one for his sore achilles. It really is one size fits all and is simple to slide the ice pack in/out and wrap his foot.
My 13 year old recently hurt his knee during a basketball game and he too was able to take advantage of the amazing übertherm wrap. He asked me why it didn’t feel freezing cold like most of ice packs he normally uses. He is accustomed to the burning, almost painful, sensation of regular ice packs. I told him about übertherm’s technology and the science behind it, but I’m not sure he was listening! :). You can learn more about their technology over here.
The price is very affordable. Considering you get the wrap and all the necessary gel packs, I feel these are a great deal. As someone who has needed something for every joint in my body, I am so happy to have found these!
You can order übertherm directly from their website. I highly recommend them for everyone!
