Aching knees? Swellings? Painful ligaments? The Soothing Grains Knee Compress is an excellent therapeutic aid to ease the discomfort. The ligaments in knees are susceptible to sprains and tears often resulting in swollen knees. Swellings lead to pain, difficulty in moving and reduced blood flow which slows healing. Compression helps to reduce knee swelling and improve healing.
This premium 100% grain filler compress is inspired by the ancient Vedic tradition of moist warm/cold healing and is one of the safest and most effective ways to apply compression. Hot and cold therapy interacts with the body to help alleviate pain and inflammation for muscles and joints. The compress works beautifully with strained knees, hamstrings, thighs and calves.
Ergonomically designed to fit snugly around the knee and therapeutically and evenly weighted to provide deep, penetrating moist heat therapy. The wrap retains both heat and cold and is made of an organic soft otton material making each use comfortable on the skin and making the heat comfortable on the skin as well. Omved compresses are easy to use; just by microwaving for one to three minutes.
Omved compresses are safer that hot water bags and it assures that the temperature remains warm and not burning because of its protective organic cotton cover.
