Nexcare™ Coldhot™ Pack - Cold and Hot Therapy from 3M

The application of heat or cold is a natural, drug-free way to help treat minor injuries and to reduce swelling.  Whilst cold can relieve pain by soothing nerve endings and slowing swelling; heat can soothe aches and muscle and joint pains by increasing blood flow and suppleness of muscles and joints.  A ColdHot therapy pack is an excellent way to help ease pain and speed up recovery. For a convenient way to apply hot or cold treatment, use a Nexcare™ ColdHot™ pack. Find out where to buy.
