3M ACE - Reusable Hot/Cold Compress with Sleeve is a compression therapy gel pack that helps to quickly relieve neck, knee, and back pain from the stresses and strains of life and sports injuries. This microwave heating pad helps to repair and recharge when it's needed most.
Each cold/hot pack has a soft outer sleeve that eliminates the need for a towel or cover when in use. The soft material of the pouch allows for direct contact with skin. Compress can be used either hot or cold. This compress relieves pain and swelling fast.
The microwave heating pad is ideal for use for muscle aches, cramps, stiffness, and arthritis. While the gel ice pack works well for sprains, strains, bumps, bruises, and insect bites.
Cold therapy is recommended for use during the first 48 hours, followed by heat therapy after that. Seek the advice of your physician if you have questions about the injury or if the swelling or pain persists.
