Acu-Life TheraPOD Moist Heat And Cold Pack Review

I've a;ways been a fan of cold and warm packs because I prefer to use them first for muscle aches and back ache before I take a pain reliever. So, I was happy to try the TheraPOD Moist Heat And Cold Pack.
The TheraPOD Moist Heat and Cold Pack contains 1 TheraPod with a strap and 1 gel insert. The gel insert can be placed inside the freezer to be used as a Cold Pack or it can be placed and heated in the microwave for 1 minute for a warm/heat pack.
The gel insert is reusable and can alternately be used as a cold or a warm pack just as long as the gel insert is in room temperature before putting it in the freezer or before warming it up int he microwave.
To use the TheraPOD as a heat/warm pack, I warm the gel insert in the microwave for 45 seconds. I let it stay there for a minute before removing it to ensure that the gel insert has cooled a bit and I wouldn't get burned. I then put the gel insert inside the TheraPOD and then put the BLUE SIDE of the TheraPOD against my skin. The warm pack is perfect to relieve my lower back pain and muscle pain.
To use the TheraPOD as a cold pack, I place the gel insert inside the freezer and leave it there for a couple of hours (2 to 3 hours is enough for me). I then put the cooled gel insert inside the TheraPOD and then put it on my knees when my knees feel strained after doing a new exercise routine.
This is also perfect for my wrist after typing in the computer. It helps relieve the stress on my wrists although the TheraPOD is a bit big for my wrist.

This is easy to use and I like the bigger surface area the TheraPOD covers. The velcro strap is very stretchy and it helps secure the TheraPOD. Since the TheraPOD with the gel insert is a bit heavy, it tends to slip when I stand up or move around so when I use this, specially on my knees and thighs, I would sit down or lie down for about 20 minutes or until the warmth or the coldness of the gel insert goes away.

 This is very helpful for me because it gives me relief from muscle pain, back pain and muscle strains. It's easy to use and I like how I can use it either as a cold pack or a warm/heat pack.
