Cool Contour™ Recovery Wraps
In the past, I was unable to participate in so many activities due to my painful knees. And, now after using the Cool Contour knee wraps my life has been given back to me! I have been using the knee wraps to ease pain and swelling with great success before and after knee replacement surgery for a long time now. What a difference they make! And, so easy to use! I would highly recommend that you give them a try! I have been so blessed to be one of the very first users of the Cool Contour Knee Wrap! - Cheryl P, Ackworth, GA
I have been diagnosed with chronic plantar fasciitis. And, the Cool Contour wrap is the only product that I have found to help ease the pain and reduce inflammation. The often-used cold therapy of freezing water in a plastic bottle coke bottle and rolling it on your heel was just too intense for me! In contrast, my Cool Contour foot wrap is cool and soothing immediately upon contact. It does not have to be refrigerated - it can be, but it's not necessary for it to remain cool to the touch. I would recommend this product to anyone that is having foot pain - Cool Contour wraps are cool, soothing, and provide immediate relief! - Hayden T, GA
I am a 17 year old high school athlete. After a workout/practice or even a game I like knowing I have my Cool Contour Shoulder Wrap to cool down my shoulder. It is much more convenient then a bag of ice, tape or an ace bandage. I don’t have to worry about the ice melting and I don’t feel like I am wrapped up like a mummy. It is easy to put on and comfortable to wear. I like the fact that I can just throw it in my bag and I am ready to go. - Anthony P, GA
In June I received my back wrap and two foot and ankle wraps to use during my pregnancy. I have to say, I love the softness of the fabric and the sleek design of the wraps - makes it very easy to use and wear anywhere! Everything about using them was easy. During my entire pregnancy I did not have to deal with any back pain. It only was until after I delivered that I experienced some very low back aches. I was able to wear my back wrap nice and low near the tailbone where most of the pain was and it provided the cooling relief that was needed!
During my pregnancy the extra “baby weight” really did a number on my feet and ankles. After being on my feet for any length of time, they really got swollen. But after I came home, I put on my foot and ankle wraps to reduce the swelling. I could see and feel the difference so fast and they felt great while I had them on.
I really recommend these wraps to anyone who is expecting and wants to have a safe, drug-free solution to help you through the pain and discomfort during pregnancy. They have also been great to still have around after my baby was born. - Lindsay V, CO
I have tried this product and would like to offer my results. I injured my shoulder with a combination of muscle damage and a pinched nerve, for which I am being treated. The Cool Contour Shoulder Wrap provides great pain relief for me. The coolness reduces swelling and pain to a much more manageable level. Much better than all of the other ways I have tried to cool down a muscle because it fits properly and most important to me, it has a long term level of cold - I can leave it on for hours. I even went to sleep in it the first 2 nights. Hours of gentle cooling instead of 10 minutes of freezing is great. - Alan, Smyrna TN.
I broke one of the metatarsals in my left foot in a basketball game, and spent 6 weeks in a boot and crutches. After I got off crutches, my coach gave me a Cool Contour Foot Wrap. I had been using ice bags each day after school, which were painful because of the weight on my injured foot.
It was great because it only took seconds to prepare by running it under the faucet, and then it secured around my foot in a painless way. It dramatically reduced the swelling around my injury each time I used it. My Cool Contour Foot Wrap is a great product that I continue to use since my injury to relieve ankle and foot pain. I would definitely recommend it to any athletes with foot or ankle injuries or even just general foot soreness because of its overall effectiveness. - Jonathan C - Marietta, GA
Just got back from Florida with a really bad sunburn on my shoulders. My dad let me borrow his cooling towel he got from you. I had a bunch of blisters all over. I'm down to maybe 4 on each shoulder now and I think this helped me get better faster. Have to say, it's really soothing and pretty cool how it absorbs the extra body heat around the burn area on my shoulders. I felt a lot better while I had it on. - Eric C, KY
I have had chronic pain in my left shoulder, from a rotator cuff injury, for years. I usually only slept for about 3-4 hours before waking up in pain. I got my shoulder wrap and started wearing it to bed at night. Now, I am sleeping 6-7 hours and have much less stiffness in my shoulder when I wake up in the morning. Very effective! - Jay, TN
I have had knee problems my entire life. My right knee has had a torn ACL, torn meniscus and a partial knee replacement. I am now in my 60’s and after a round or golf, working in the yard or being on my feet for a long time I have aching pain. I have always had a very hard time sleeping due to the pain. Now, I put my Cool Contour Knee Wrap on in the early evening and by bed time the pain is gone. I use it every day. I sleep better than ever. AWESOME product! Thank you Cool Contour. - Gary G
I am one of millions of people suffering from osteoarthritis, and when it came on suddenly in my right knee about six months ago, it made my life a nightmare. Walking hurt, and I found myself resting it with ice pack after ice pack to no avail. I was constantly stiff and any movements caused tremendous pain. Even sleeping was difficult; no matter how I tried to prop up my knee, it would get stiff within an hour or two, and the pain would begin as soon as I moved the slightest bit. Needless to say, the pain impacted my ability to do everything; from hiking to going to a concert, and even my honeymoon.
I knew that staying active was the key to pain relief and reduction of inflammation, and keeping off my knee was not making things any better for me. My joint got more and more stiff and immobile. I'm only 26, so this was an awful development. In order for me to stay active and keep the pain at bay without numbing it with ice, I decided to try something new. My Cool Contour Knee Wrap has helped me a lot; its a different type of product that is cool but not ice cold, and I wear it almost non-stop.
This product cools when moistened, and provides a relieving effect throughout the day. Unlike ice packs, it provides cool, consistent comfort that doesn't make my skin uncomfortable or make me feel numb. The cooling effect does wonders for my pain level throughout the day, and since it can be worn under pants, it allows me to experience topical pain relief. It noticeably reduced inflammation within the first days and weeks of use. The design is great so I can keep moving without having to adjust it.
My knee wrap has become my companion; accompanying my on weekend trips, long walks, and just days running errands. I keep it in the refrigerator when I'm not wearing it, and it remains clean and fresh with minimal effort. My favorite thing about this wrap is that it is comfortable and finally allows me to sleep! The worst part about my knee issue was the fact that it interrupted my sleep and I was groggy all the time. This keeps my knee comfortable while I sleep, and my pain is less when I wake up.
While there is no such thing as a miracle product, this has been the next best thing for me. With continued use and consistent exercise, I've reduced my joint pain and I no longer feel as though I need to keep getting cortisone shots in my knee. My Cool Contour Knee Wrap has helped me to go from nearly immobile and miserable to active and nearly pain free. If you're looking for a long-term solution to reduce pain and inflammation, this is so worth it! - Stacey R, Raleigh, NC
After breaking four ribs this summer, my doctor advised me it would take 6 to 8 months to fully heal. I was given a prescription for pain pills, but they made me sick. Since I couldn't take the prescription, the pain was severe. I tried ice and it numbed the pain for a few minutes. But, as soon as I removed it the pain returned. I wasn't able to go to work because the pain was so bad. Then, I was provided with a Cool Contour Wrap and advised that I could wear it as much as needed. After the first day I saw how easy it was to use, so I religiously wore the Wrap around my rib cage every day for about two months. The way it secured around my ribs added just enough compression and support.
I wore the Wrap under my shirt at work every day and was able to do my job because it didn't force me to remain immobile. In the evening I kept it on at home and even slept in it so I could rest better. The healing time for my ribs ended up being much shorter than the doctor originally said it would be. I am convinced that using my Wrap helped me function better and allowed my body to heal itself faster.
Years ago I was in a car accident and just always lived with chronic inflammation and neck pain. Now, I use my Wrap to help me with my neck pain too. It reduces the inflammation and stiffness and really makes a difference. When I travel, I just put it in my suitcase and take it with me. I highly recommend Cool Contour Recovery Wraps for anyone needing relief from chronic inflammation and pain.” - Jim T, Mt. Juliet, TN
Thank you for allowing me to share my story. There's so much "bad" in the news today about chronic pain, long term use of painkillers, and the dangerous side effects. I believe it's important for people in pain and their doctors to have drug-free solutions that actually work. I hope my story will encourage more doctors to dispense your products to help patients who need safe pain relief. I was advised by my doctor that my surgery wasn't going to guarantee me a "pain-free" life, but between my surgery and this product my quality of life is much better now.
I developed chronic inflammation in the tissues around my incision a couple months after my hip replacement surgery. It was painful to walk, sit or stand. My surgeon prescribed an anti-inflammatory medication, ice and physical therapy. The medication was ineffective. Physical therapy was painful and putting an ice pack on my hip was impossible because of the location of the incision.
I was at the end of my rope when I remembered seeing something that my grandson's wife had posted on Facebook about Cool Contour Recovery Wraps. I decided to try one for my hip and what a difference it's made! Because of how it's made, I just turn it and secure the largest part against my hip, covering the entire incision area. It only took a few days of using it for the inflammation and pain to subside.
It stays cool for hours and all I have to do is wet it, wring it out and put it back on to get immediate, cooling relief. It doesn't make my clothing wet so I wear it to work, to ball games and even to bed. I sleep much longer now without waking up in pain every night. The best part is that I have been able to stop taking pain medications completely because I don't need them anymore.
Having the moderate cooling against my skin is so much better than an ice pack -20 minutes on, 20 minutes off. I wish I would have had this while I was waiting to have my hip surgery because it is the perfect size and shape to cover the whole area.
Anyone scheduled for hip replacement surgery should get a Back, Hip & Abdomen Wrap to help them before and after surgery. I love mine and recommend it to everyone I know with back or hip pain. Knee replacement surgery, for both knees, is in my future and I am purchasing two Cool Contour Knee Wraps too. I hope my experience helps others understand how well these products really work. - Karen W, GA
I am very pleased to share my story, because I put a lot of value on results when something works the way it is advertised to work. There are a couple of things I want to say that I like about my Foot & Ankle Wrap. I have had it for 5 months. After suffering from Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot for almost 6 years I was extremely frustrated about how it was affecting my life. I woke up in pain almost every morning and couldn't spend long on my feet before I felt like I needed to sit or lay down to relieve the pain and swelling. Trust me, I tried everything I could find to help me, but nothing worked. I tried it because my sister got one and it worked for her.
The most important thing about my Wrap is that it works every single time I use it. It doesn't matter if it is in the morning, afternoon, or during the night - and for that I could not be happier. It cools down so fast, but not too cold like ice. Ice was too cold against my skin, plus it only numbed my pain for a few minutes. I wear my Wrap for hours at a time and I love that. I also love how soft and light it is feels against my skin. Most of all, I love that I can wear it under my sock and I can use it anywhere. It really doesn't get my sock wet and that's pretty nifty.
When my husband and I retired, our dream was to travel all across the United States in our RV. Before I got my wrap, I had to deal with pain and the swelling in my foot and ankle area on every trip we took. I fought through it, as best as I could, but it definitely made our travels less enjoyable. Some days I just didn't feel like doing anything.
Now, I just take my wrap out of the refrigerator, put it on, and I feel better in a few minutes. There is no price I can put on how much it means to me to have something that is so easy and works so well. Us "old people" talk to each other about a lot of things, but when I talk about how great my Wrap is everyone always tells me about their pains and aches and wants info about how to get one for themselves. Thank you for giving me a chance to share my experience and I hope that my story helps someone else feel better and enjoy life more like I do now. - Shirley C, Merritt Island, FL
I am in the US Military and PT regularly every morning. Prior to joining the military, I was a college athlete on the Women's Golf Team. I have a 33 degree curvature of Scoliosis in my spine. I’ve always been plagued with some degree of discomfort in my back. Sometimes I get random back spasms in my lower back with no warning. My former college golf coach sent me your Recovery Back Wrap a month or so ago. She told me to wear it every day after I worked out or trained. She tried to explain that the technology it uses would help alleviate chronic inflammation in my lower back and facet joints. I didn't know what to expect.
After suffering with back pain for so many years, and trying so many things, I was kind of skeptical of anything ever helping. But, this has become a welcomed relief. I put it on after a hard PT session, a round of golf, or a training session, and my back feels better faster now. I like that the product is comfortable and remains cool for a long period of time (and a comfortable cool, not freezing cold). I can wear it for hours under my shirt and no one even knows I have it on. It's also easy to take care of with little to no maintenance.
I wish I'd gotten this years ago. It makes such a big difference when I overuse the muscles in my back or get a back spasm. I am more active because I have a tool now that works. I recommend it to anyone who has recurring back pain or anyone a back disorder. It’s definitely worth trying. If it helps you, like it has me, you'll be glad you did. - Staci L, Raeford, NC
Almost five years ago my wife and I were in a car accident. I suffered several back injuries and was eventually diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis in the spine and chronic inflammation of the spinal joints. My pain was always worse at night, making it hard to sleep for more than an hour or two at a time. Not sleeping good eventually caught up with me and I started feeling fatigued during the day. I had a lot of stiffness in the mornings and could barely get out of bed to walk.
My doctor suggested to numb the pain with ice, but it made my back muscles tighten up and go into a spasm. For the next two years, I wore a back brace, went for therapy, went for chiropractic adjustments, and took a lot of anti-inflammatory drugs. The drugs made me uncomfortable, so I stopped taking them and just lived with the pain. Because I had so much pain, I got scared to walk or move around much. The therapy and adjustments helped, but my doctor said I still had a lot of inflammation that needed to be addressed.
In April 2016, I was provided with your back wrap. I was told it might help reduce my inflammation without the drugs. I admit, I was skeptical about anything actually helping very much but I agreed to use it. I got on your website and read the stories about how these products helped other people with their problems. I started out wearing it around the house for 3-4 hours at a time. The coolness was soothing against my skin. Since it wasn't ice cold it didn't cause the spasms. After about a week, I started noticing that my back was starting to feel a little better and I hadn't had a single spasm.
So, I started using it more each day and even slept in it to see if it would help with the stiffness. I've been using it for about two months and I'm happy to say that my pain has dropped from about an 8 or 9 down to a 3 or 4. I still go for the adjustments and my chiropractor says since my muscles aren't as tight as they were it helps his adjustments be more effective.
I really do wish I had gotten your Back Wrap five years ago. It's so easy to use. I'm more active, I sleep about 4-5 hours without waking up in pain, and I don't wake up as stiff in the morning. I'm very happy to finally have something I can use to help myself feel better and help my back recover. I still have a long way to go, but I am on my way. I recommend this product for other people to use who have lower back pain. I hope my story helps someone else the way other stories helped me when I read them. - Lou, Cocoa Beach, FL
I truly don't know how people work in this heat everyday. I pray for all you guys and gals that do any kind of outdoor work for a living in hot weather. My awesome Cool Contour Cooling Towel made it more bearable while I worked at the Habitat for Humanities building site today. I kept it around my neck all day because it stayed so much cooler than my other one and for much longer. - Shelley, Nashville, TN
Our daughter is 16 years old and this year our doctor told us that she has overused her shoulder from pitching so much the past few years. She pitches for her high school and her travel team. Her high school softball coach has been fighting with her all year because she doesn't do anything to help her shoulder get better. She refused to do the whole ice bag thing because, like most of her friends, she didn't believe it helped. It was frustrating her and us.
The soreness and pain was gradually getting worse and worse. It was taking longer for her to be ready to pitch again. She knew her shoulder was getting weaker and it was affecting her ability to pitch.
We started looking for something else and that's when were told about your company and your recovery wraps. This summer we got one of your shoulder wraps right before we went to a tournament in Florida. Like other parents, we've invested a lot of time and money in our daughter and softball. She's been using it now for almost two months and its made a big difference. We just put it in the cooler before the game and she puts it on as soon as the game is over. It's easy to use, but the thing she loves best is that after wearing it for a few hours it really makes her shoulder feel better and it's not freezing cold like ice or ice packs. Her dad and I are still shocked she likes it so much. She uses it almost every day. She tells us her shoulder isn't as sore the next day after pitching so it's working.
Last week we showed it to her HS softball coach. He's happy she found something that's helping her shoulder. He asked for your website info and I'm pretty sure he'll be talking to the whole team about the different products. We think this might turn out to be one of our best softball investments ever. We decided to share all of this because we think other girls, and their parents, need to know about something that can help them too. Thank you. - Tameka W., Birmingham, AL
After a couple years of doctor appointments and a battery of tests, I was diagnosed with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis in 2013. My condition first began by affecting my knees. I began feeling stiffness, pain, and had difficulty walking very far. Over time it progressed into my lower back, causing extreme pain. My treatments included everything from chiropractic adjustments, to physical therapy, to drugs. I began having to depend on using a cane for stability while walking. I never knew from day to day how I would feel when I woke up. But it became clear that I needed to find effective support tools and aids to help me continue to function each day.
In June 2015, I began using a Cool Contour Recovery Back Wrap and two Knee Wraps. Because I woke up every morning with so much stiffness and pain, I put them on as soon as I got out of bed and wore them while having my coffee to start my day. They provided me with the relief I needed to start my day. After several hours I would take them off and put them back in the refrigerator to use later in the day. Some days I needed them again earlier than other days, but it was always comforting to know I had something that worked for me. The physical and mental benefits have been very valuable for dealing with my condition.
A year later, I still start my day wearing my Recovery Wraps every morning and they have become my "go to" for reducing chronic inflammation and pain. While they aren't a cure for MS, they're a major part of how I treat my MS every day. I can’t imagine not having them now. They allow me to remain mobile while I wear them, and they're so comfortable that sometimes I forget I even have them on. They are simple to use at home and take on trips out of town. I strongly recommend these products for anyone who has MS, joint pain, or muscle problems. They really do all the work for you and will help you feel better by reducing chronic inflammation, stiffness, pain and fatigue without the long-term need for anti-inflammatory drugs. - Julia M, Smyrna, TN
I have severe spinal stenosis which causes lower back and leg pain 24 hours a day. I started using the back wrap on a regular basis in the mornings about a month ago. I love the convenience of wrapping it around my back and doing what I want while it's on. It's so much better than leaning on an ice pack and trying to angle it in just the right place and then attempting to keep it in place.
After a couple of hours, I re-wet it, put it back in the bag in the fridge and it's ready for the next time. NO MORE ICE PACKS! I highly recommend this easy to use product if you suffer from back pain. I am never going to be pain free, but this wrap is really a blessing. It allows me to stand straighter and move with more ease. Thank you Cool Contour Products. - Sue C, Fort Lauderdale, FL
