The first time they see or try Core's Pressure Point Therapy Packs, many
people say something like, "That's ingenious!" when referring to their
design, which targets relief from headaches, low-back pain and muscle
soreness by combining pressure point and cold therapies. Linked therapy
balls are encased in non-toxic cold therapy gel and ergonomically
positioned to fit pressure points at the base of the skull or lower
back. Your own body, the back of a chair, a mattress, or whatever is
suitable for the situation, provides the pressure.
The DualComfort cover offers two "frost-free" treatment surfaces - one
for slow-release, the other for rapid-release, so you also control the
delivery of the medically accepted cold therapy. The balls stay soft and
pliable when stored in freezer. Both sizes bring helpful relief to
virtually any spot on the neck or back.

Choosing the Right Therapy
Cold should always be applied for the fi rst 72 hours following any type
of acute injury such as an ankle sprain, after surgery or with any type
of swelling. Cold works by constricting the blood vessels, restricting
the fl ow of blood to the affected area. It also numbs the nerve endings
helping to dull any pain associated with the injury. Alternate 20
minutes of cold therapy with a 20 minute break. Repeat this process 3 -
4 times daily.
Heat therapy should be used for chronic issues such as muscle discomfort
and stiffness. Heat opens up the blood vessels allowing blood to fl ow
freely to the affected area. This increases circulation, delivering
oxygen and nutrients and removing waste from sore, tired or injured
muscles. Alternate 20 minutes of heat therapy with a 20 minute break.
Repeat this process 3 - 4 times daily until stiffness and soreness
subside. Do not use heat therapy on areas with poor circulation,
decreased sensation or areas with bruising or swelling.
Pressure Point Therapy
Pressure point therapy is a massage technique that involves applying
pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain or soreness.
Manual trigger point therapy consists of deep, sustained pressure to the
trigger point using either low pressure for a long duration (about 90
seconds) or a high pressure for a short duration (about 30 seconds).
Always consult your health care provider regarding any treatment of
Use the R.I.C.E. treatment method to treat minor
injuries where swelling occurs. Recommended for the treatment of minor
strains, sprains, joint aches and other soft tissue injuries. The
R.I.C.E. treatment method at intervals of four to six hours during the
first 72 hours following a minor injury. The method is as follows:
Rest: Rest the injured area for the fi rst
24 – 72 hours following injury. Use the affected area only as much as
can be tolerated and avoid any activities that cause pain.
Ice: Alternate 20 minutes of cold therapy
with a 20 minute break. Repeat this 3 - 4 times daily.
Compression: Apply mild pressure to the
area with a wrap or extremity brace to reduce swelling. Be careful not
to wrap too tightly and if you feel pain or tingling, loosen the wrap or
brace right away to prevent causing further injury.
Elevation: Keep the injured body part
elevated, above t he level of your heart, as much as possible during the
first 72 hours after injury.
