RIGIGEL: NO ORDINARY GEL PACK.

Relieve Pain. Reduce Swelling.

How to Deal With Inflammation

The best way to treat the pain and swelling experienced following an injury is to apply cold to the injured area. Often patients will use painkillers to deal with discomfort relating to their injury, but using this method is dangerous. Painkillers do nothing to treat the pain or inflammation associated with an injury, merely covering up the damage or even making the injury worse. Instead of painkillers, use cold to relieve this pain safely and effectively.

The problem with many ice gels is that they do not properly distribute cold evenly over the whole injury, and do not stay cold for long. The way to fix this problem is to use a ColdCure® cold compression wrap. ColdCure® wraps use thicker, bigger wraps that hold their shape to keep the cold on the injury.

Superior Gel

Most ordinary gels are very thin and don't hold much gel. The gel they do hold can't even stay on the injury, instead moving around unevenly when pressure is applied. This makes most ordinary gels ineffective for treating injuries. ColdCure® wraps, however, use RigiGel® gel packs that are much bigger and thicker than regular ones, and hold their shape instead of flowing away when compression is introduced. RigiGel® gel packs offer superior temperature balancing as well in addition to the sheer amount of rigid gel, ensuring the entire injured area receives an equal amount of relief from pain and swelling.

Use Cold, not Ice

It's common for many people to put ice on their injuries to relieve pain and keep swelling down. However, they are only putting themselves at risk of further damage to their tissue. Ice from the freezer is too cold and can often burn the skin over the injury. To solve this, ColdCure® RigiGel® is designed to be stored in the fridge, where it is not too cold to burn but is more than enough to treat pain and inflammation. There's no need to put yourself at further risk.

Quality Wraps

Each ColdCure® wrap is made of soft, comfortable Neoprene. They are designed with quality in mind for patients to enjoy wearing. The wraps are built to be injury-specific; there is a variety of wraps in shapes that fit the forms of many common injured body parts such as the knee or shoulder. Their unique shape allows for the best and most comfortable coverage for the entire injured area.

Paired with Revolutionary ColdCure® Wraps

RigiGel® technology is one of the key components in the design of ColdCure® wraps. The wraps combine the benefits of cold therapy with compression and comfort, improving on all the models to create the ultimate pain and swelling solution. It's recommended that patients start using a ColdCure® wrap following an injury to alleviate the discomfort and swelling. With the cold and compression aspects working together along with the powerful RigiGel® and Perpachill® technologies, ColdCure® provides the best possible solution to post-injury pain and swelling.

Got the hot and cold treatment for hip bursitis...

But the packages say they are for the back, and it would not cover both hips. Am I supposed to do it twice as often by doing only one hip at a time or did I get the wrong packages?

Re: Got the hot and cold treatment for hip bursitis...

The Back/Hip wrap does not cover both hips at the same time.  We do not have a wrap to do this.  You would have to treat one side then the other.

With the ColdCure, as you have three gel packs, feel free to use 2 gel packs at the same time.  One gel will be in the mesh pocket on one hip and a second gel will be held in place just by the wrap on the other side.

I hope this suggestion helps.  Please contact us any time if you have any further questions.

All the best.

Re: Got the hot and cold treatment for hip bursitis...

I guess I don't understand when to use hot and when to use cold.  Can you help please?

Re: Got the hot and cold treatment for hip bursitis...

Treatment slightly varies from person to person, but generally:
Start with just the ColdCure, multiple times a day for 20 minutes at a time.  After a few days, when you notice a decrease in your level of pain, you can incorporate the BFST.
Level 1 to start, 3-4 times a day for 20 minutes.  Go back to Cold anytime you are in more pain.
I have included links to some more detailed instructions that may help.  Keep in mind, ColdCure when in pain and BFST routinely when feeling generally ok.
