Heat & Cold Therapy Products Provide Natural Pain Relief Alternative
Pain is the most common affliction in the United States. In fact, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Individuals may experience acute pain related to a specific injury or chronic pain that persists for weeks and even years at a time. The vast majority of individuals suffering from painful symptoms turn to prescription painkillers, nearly 35% of the American population were given painkiller prescriptions by medical providers last year. These prescription drugs can be habit forming and potentially lethal when taken in high doses or combined with alcohol. Millions of Americans are looking for a natural, alternative solution for pain relief. In this article, we’re going to talk about the benefits of hot and cold therapy products for natural relief from acute and chronic pain symptoms.
The Impact of Pain on Americans
Pain is a fairly broad medical category. It ranges from acute, localized pain after a surgery or accident, to persistent chronic pain from general aging and degeneration. When asked about four common types of pain, respondents of a National Institute of Health Statistics survey indicated that low back pain was the most common (27%), followed by severe headache or migraine pain (15%), neck pain (15%) and facial ache or pain (4%). The total annual incremental cost of health care due to pain ranges from $560 billion to $635 billion (in 2010 dollars) in the United States, which combines the medical costs of pain care and the economic costs related to disability days and lost wages and productivity. Reusable thermal pain management products could help decrease the outrageous costs of pain on the American economy.
What are Thermal Pain Management Products?
When we were children, our mothers would treat our bumps and scrapes with an ice pack, and perhaps you even remember putting a warm washcloth over your eyes to relieve a painful headache. These are the fundamental concepts behind thermal pain management products. We can use moist heat therapy and cold therapy to relieve pain. At Thermalon, we setout to simplify and perfect thermal pain management treatments. We developed a comprehensive product line of moist heat therapy and cold therapy products specifically designed for effective targeted treatment.

What Makes Moist Heat & Cold Therapy Effective?
Our innovative moist heat therapy products incorporate our patented HydroPearl technology. These beads absorb moisture from the air, and after just a few second in the microwave, release a soothing, moist heat. This deep penetrating heat helps ease muscle tightness and soothe pain. Thermalon’s cold therapy products use a unique non-gel matrix to release a medically safe and effective dose of cold to the site of application. Cold therapy helps relieve painful swelling and inflammation caused by acute pain after an accidental injury or medical operation.
