Cold One® Ice Packs with Compression
Proof that ice and compression stops pain and swelling
When you have a soft tissue injury doctors recommend icing for 15-20 minutes and compression (in addition to rest and elevation) for sprains, strains, arthritis, pre-surgery, and post-surgery healing.
When your doctor orders ice and compression, applying them at the same time and at the correct temperature produces the best results, and that is the genius behind the design of Cold One®. Our ice wraps maintain a constant Ice temperature for 15-20 minutes as recommended by Orthopedic MDs for safe icing. (Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic)

Why endure more days of suffering while wasting time and money trying things that don't work?
