Deltoid Injury Treatment
Whether you suffer from a soft tissue injury or a chronic condition, there is no better treatment for pain and swelling than a ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap. Nothing is faster or more effective at reducing pain than cold and compression. There are a lot of wraps out there, but none come even close to ours. King Brand® ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps use both cold and compression to bring you the absolute best performing cold compression device available. Our Shoulder Wrap has many benefits other products don't.
Only King Brand® ColdCure® gel packs contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is soft to the touch but doesn't move around under pressure. This means it stays in place to treat your injury, so you get an even and consistent cold treatment over the entire injured area, every time. No matter how hard you press on the gel, it stays in place. It will give a bit for comfort, but it won't move away from your painful injury.
Keeping the cold on your injured shoulder throughout treatment is very important if you want to relieve the pain as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional blue ice packs, our XC RigiGel® formula doesn't move to other parts of the pack, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. Keeping the pressure and cold on the injured area of your shoulder is critical for effective relief of pain and swelling. In terms of flex and form, XC RigiGel® packs feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do straight out of the fridge or freezer. They're firm yet flexible at any temperature for the most comfortable treatments possible.
While the gel itself doesn't move around inside the pack, the cold energy does. Traditional ice packs have hot and cold spots, but our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to a shoulder injury, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. Our temperature balancing gel works to move the cold where it's needed within the gel pack, eliminating the potential for hot spots. This means your painful shoulder will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. The hyper-conductive power of these gel packs is unmatched.
The Walgreens factory tested our gel and found that pound for pound, our gel held over 3x more cold than their brand name gel. The results were staggering.
Not only do XC RigiGel® packs hold more cold, they also cover a larger area and contain more gel than standard ice packs. This makes a huge difference in the treatment you receive. Most traditional ice packs only contain a little bit of gel, because a gel pack with tons of gel is a lot more expensive to make. But if you really want to feel better and reduce your pain and swelling, you need a pack with tons of gel. XC RigiGel® packs are the solution. A bigger pack with more gel inside means faster and more effective relief of your pain and swelling.
The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs. This means you can have 1 gel pack inside the wrap for your treatment and 2 more charging in the fridge or freezer, so you can swap them out quickly to keep your therapy going. ColdCure® gel packs are large enough to cover your injury, but are never bulky. For example, our Leg Wrap comes with 3 gel packs that weigh about 4 lbs (2 kgs) and that's just the gel packs alone. Compare that to most other ice packs or cold wraps on the market that weigh less than 1 lb, including the wrap. A King Brand ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap with XC RigiGel® contains 10x more gel than other wraps. That's a TON of pain relief!
The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap provides firm, even compression for superior treatment of pain and swelling. The wrap applies targeted compression to the injured area with no gaps in pressure. To be as effective as possible, the compression needs to be uniform and complete, and the ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap provides exactly that.
The Shoulder Wrap is soft and stretchy, making it easy to apply and adjust. Both the wrap and the gel packs are specifically designed for the shape of your shoulder. The wrap can be worn without the gel pack inside as a support for your shoulder when you're not doing treatments. The wrap is incredibly comfortable to wear.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice (and other freezer based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
Ice pack injuries are so common, there are actually law firms that specialize in representing people who suffer from them. Don't let that happen to you! XC® gel packs hold enough cold out of the fridge to provide extended and effective cold treatments. When stored in the fridge, our gel packs are completely safe to use one after the other for as long as you like without taking any breaks.
While we recommend you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC® gel packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. For optimum usage, keep one of the packs in the freezer and the other 2 in the fridge and you will get hours of non-stop cold therapy to take away your pain.
To give you even more cold compression, each Shoulder Wrap comes with a free Accessory Strap. The Accessory Strap can be applied anywhere on the wrap to provide additional compression and support over the exact location of your pain. This allows you to target the treatment specifically for your injury, which means maximum relief of your pain and swelling.
For more compression, attach the Accessory Strap to the area of your shoulder where you feel the most pain.
To restrict movement of your shoulder, attach the Accessory Strap to the area that's most painful when you move.
