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.

Dynamic duo: heat and cold in one great package.

Cold therapy works by constricting blood vessels, resulting in a decrease in blood flow to the area of application. This helps to decrease swelling and promote healing. Heat therapy increases blood flow to the area to help relax muscles and decrease pain. Put them together and you've got a lot of natural healing at your disposal for relieving sprains, strains, tendinitis and other injuries, as well as stiffness and poor circulation. This pain management system is even more dynamic.

Two "frost-free" surfaces and a unique strapping system provide therapeutic temperatures with secure positioning. The plush surface provides slow-release treatment, while the rapid-release surface delivers quicker results with either heat or cold. Microwave or conveniently store in freezer, where they stay soft and pliable. Available in many sizes, including a tri-sectional shape that's perfect for the neck and shoulders.

Choosing the Right Therapy
 

Cold 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
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 injury.


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.
