Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
For too long, patients and injured people have been popping highly addictive prescription and over-the-counter medications to ease the pain of surgery, injury, or illness. Both opioid painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can cause serious side effects, including addiction, bleeding, stomach ulcers, kidney and liver problems.
In recent years, there has been a significant focus on non-pharmaceutical pain relief. A recent report from Harvard Medical School explores alternatives to pills, including use natural remedies like hot and cold therapy for managing pain.
For decades, doctors have recommended using a bag of frozen vegetables to ease pain and reduce swelling. Enter patent pending FrozenPeaz® products, a breakthrough non-toxic hot/cold therapy pack that mimics the malleability of a bag of frozen vegetables.
"When I was recovering from an injury, I relied on frozen vegetables because they conformed so nicely to my body,” says MaryCarol Dolivier, co-founder of FrozenPeaz®. “But I got tired of leaky bags of peas and knew I had to find a better, less messy, but just as natural solution.”
Many other alternatives in the marketplace are made from petroleum and glycerin-based gels. In comparison FrozenPeaz products contain a 100% natural, plant-based solution. These revolutionary packs are now available to consumers in six different sizes and eliminate the messy inconvenience of ice packs.
Dr. Terry Nicola, Director of Sports Medicine Rehabilitation at the University of Illinois at Chicago has firsthand experience treating his patients and athletes with FrozenPeaz® products, "My patients find that FrozenPeaz products deliver the cold without sacrificing comfort and they experience a significant reduction in pain."
While cold therapy receives the most attention, doctors and sports trainers recommend hot therapy for sore muscles, stiff joints and increased circulation. "Don't let the name FrozenPeaz fool you," Co-founder Arthur Blackwood says. “From the beginning, we were committed to developing a solution that delivered both hot and cold therapeutic benefits."
Until now, FrozenPeaz® flexible hot and cold therapy products were only available through select physical therapists. Now FrozenPeaz are online and everyone from athletes to weekend warriors and arthritis sufferers to active seniors can enjoy a pill-free way of relieving pain and reducing swelling. FrozenPeaz® makes popping pills for pain relief a thing of the past.
