Blue Healer gel packs have been designed to provide hot and cold pain relief for home- and sport-related injuries. Follow the guide below for recommendations on using a gel pack to treat your injury.
Note: NEVER apply pack directly to the skin. It is recommended to use an insulating cloth on the pack to avoid direct contact with skin. These instructions are given only as a guide, and proper consultation with a physician may be required before using this product if you are unsure.
Use heat if pain is chronic or muscular (e.g. back pain, neck pain, etc.)
Heat gel pack in hot (not boiling) water for 10-15 minutes. Remove from water, wrap in a clean cloth and apply to injury. If discomfort is experienced, immediately remove pack from injury.
Use cold if pain is recent or inflamed/swollen (e.g. bruises, sprains, cuts, etc.)
