Frozen Peaz Large Joint Wrap

FrozenPeaz® is a non-toxic, reusable, no mess, flexible, compression fitting, hot or cold option for getting relief from sore muscles or injuries, decreasing the inflammation and the pain. That’s right the FrozenPeaz® can be used for either cold therapy or hot therapy.  Used cold to treat injuries and inflammation or hot to increase range of motion and relax sore muscles. 
Cryotherapy or applying cold therapy, with FrozenPeaz® is not even comparable when it comes to the other options out there such as a gel pack, an ice pack or a regular package of frozen vegetables. FrozenPeaz® has numerous wraps to help treat specific areas of the body. The VirtualPeaz™ in FrozenPeaz® won’t break down with repeat usage. 
I use the PeazPod™ Large Joint Wrap to help my knees recover after a run or cycling workout. After having MCL surgery in November of 2014, icing treatments are a regular thing for my knee helping it recover. 
The TheraPeaz™ wrap holds three medium size PeazPaks™.  The Large Joint Wrap, in which I use to treat my knee joints consists of one PeazPod™ and three PeazPaks™ which each measure 7.5 inches by 6 inches.  Besides using on the knee the wrap can be also used other places and joints on your body including your back or even shoulder. 
After letting the PeazPod™ sit in the freezer for a least four hours, remove the packs and slip them inside the TheraPeaz™ flannel wrap. The flannel wrap can be washed if needed, but it is recommended you let it air dry.  You can store the PeazPak™ inside the freezer by themselves or you can store them inside the TheraPeaz™ flannel wrap.  The best thing I love about the wrap is its ability to treat my knee from 360 degrees by conforming around it. No more using a ziploc bag filled with ice and an a sports bandage to try and help hold it in place. Ice bags most likely get messy and drip all over.  The elastic straps use velcro on each end which hugs the flannel PeazPod™ allowing for compression against the area being treated. The straps measure in length roughly 24 inches ( or 2 feet ) and can expand to approximately 32 inches when stretched.  The PeazPod™ is 100% flannel on the inside and is very comfortable between your skin and the PeazPod™.  Only use the PeazPod™ inside the wrap or place a towel between the PeazPod™ and your skin, never use a PeazPod™ directly on your skin.  
I use the PeazPod™ Large Joint Wrap for 20 minutes on 20 minutes off at a time and often will elevate my leg, although with the compression wrap applied you are free to move and walk around with the wrap staying in place.
The Large Single Wrap contains one PeazPod™ and a PeazePak™ which measures 8 inches by 9 inches.  The Large wrap is versatile in the areas on the body it can be placed such as the lower back, shin, arm or back of the neck. 
The FrozenPeaz®  PeazPaks™ cold and hot therapy packs can be cleaned by simply washing with a mild soap by hand and drying them with a clean towel.
It is important to remember when treating any area with the FrozenPeaz® you are wanting to help recover and not cause other damage, so stay with the 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off rule of thumb.
So how does using FrozenPeaz® help in the process? The constant cold temperatures FrozenPeaz® provides causes your blood vessels to tighten, therefore draining the blood out of that area of the body.  When the 20 minutes of treatment are up, that area of your body will begin to fill up with “new" blood that invigorates the muscles with oxygen to help the cells function better.  Although it is really a first-aid term R.I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) it also applies when recovering. 
When it comes to heat therapy using a gel pack, ice pack or regular package of frozen vegetables, it simply can’t be done.  If at anytime during a treatment with FrozenPeaz® you feel uncomfortable, stop the treatment.  I know for myself, the first 5 minutes of my typical 20 minute cold treatment are tough to get by, but it does take some time to adjust to the extreme cold treatment. I am very excited to be an ambassador for FrozenPeaz®.
