Soothe those Body Aches and Pains without Drugs! (Review)
Sometimes life can give you your share of aches and pains, and they are no barrel of laughs! You don't always need to be reaching for pain pills.
Carex Health has some wonderful products to help you to soothe those aches and pains. I was sent samples of some of Carex Health products that have greatly helped to benefit me and several members of my family in our times of 'ouchies.'
The Swivel Cushion offers all of the benefits of a ring cushion with the convenience of a swivel cushion. Its ergonomic design helps to reduce pressure on the spine and tailbone. It is ideal for women who are pregnant, new mothers, or anyone recovering from surgery. It can also be used by people with limited mobility while entering and exiting a vehicle.
My Experience: I am always sitting at my computer desk, working on my blog, of course. This cushion swivels as I move, and really protects and soothes my tailbone which gets really sore and tired from sitting for long periods of time.
The Hot Cold Pain Relief Wrap uses a flexible clay based compound that absorbs hot & cold temperatures, then slowly releases hot or cold therapy over an extended period of time. The soft fleece sleeve with Velcro® strap creates a secure fit. It comes in several sizes to adjust to the area you need to treat. It conforms to all parts of the body including the back, knees, ankles and elbows. The clay-based properties of Theramics enable you to easily mold the ThermiPaq pad to any affected area for better pain relief.
My Experience: My husband often comes home from work very sore, especially his back and shoulders. The Hot Cold Pain Relief Wrap is perfect for him. We heat it in the microwave and lay it across his sore shoulders as he lays in bed. The heat penetrates quickly for soothing relief. I have even used it on my belly to help soothe menstrual cramps. It really works!
The Moist Heat Back Wrap uses ceramic beads to provide deep penetrating moist heat therapy that transfers heat slowly over an extended period of time to provide relief from sore muscles, spasms, aches and other back pain. The ceramic beads are designed to absorb moisture from the air and then release it into the cloth pad when heated in the microwave. This natural hydration process creates a clean, comforting moist heat without the inconvenience of wetting or soaking the pad.
My Experience: My dad, who is 75 years old is a very hard working man who never slows down, except when he pulls muscles in his back, which he recently did while doing yard work. (Poor guy.) He also would never even dream of touching pain pills, and so he was very happy to have this wonderful Moist Heat Back Wrap on hand. It really worked to soothe his pain. He was back on his feet rather quickly.
The Icy Cold Pain Relief Wrap uses a flexible clay based compound that absorbs cold temperatures then slowly releases radiant cold therapy over an extended period of time. The soft fleece sleeve with Velcro® strap creates a secure fit. (It also comes in several sizes.)
My Experience: I strained my knee while doing lunges last week. This Icy Cold Pain Relief Wrap was perfect for bringing down the swelling and soothing my pain. I had kept in in the freezer and it was nice and cold when I needed it. It was so much better than an ice pack because it cooled my leg slowly, and did not make me feel discomfort from the coldness.

My Experience: Sometimes when I am stressed out, my neck and shoulders tense up and I have a hard time relaxing. I decided to try out my Comfort Wrap one night when I was feeling especially anxious and just could not settle. I placed it in the microwave and wrapped it across my neck as I watched TV before bed. Before I knew it, all my tension was melted away and I felt so relaxed and comfortable from the warmth and the comforting scent of lavender & rose.
