  • Do you know when to use Heat or when to use Cold for an injury?

    Posted on May 9, 2012 by Core Products

    Do you know when to use heat or when to use cold for an injury? We get asked that question all the time; below is the answer you've been looking for.

    As soon as possible after an injury, such as a knee or ankle sprain, you can relieve pain and swelling and promote healing and flexibility with the RICE method. RICE stands for:

    Rest
    Ice
    Compression
    Elevation

    Rest and protect the injured or sore area. It would be best to stop the activity that caused the injury immediately. Discontinue any activity that may contribute to the pain or soreness.

    Cold reduces pain and swelling. Apply an ice or cold pack as soon as possible to help prevent and/or minimize swelling. Apply the ice or cold pack for 10 to 20 minutes in intervals of three or more times per day. If after 48 to 72 hours the swelling is gone, apply heat to the area of discomfort. Do not apply the ice or heat directly to the skin, always  use a towel or other covering over the cold or heat pack before applying it to the skin.

    Compression, or wrapping the injured or sore area with an elastic bandage, will help decrease swelling. Make sure not to wrap it too tight; this can actually cause more swelling below the affected area. If the bandage gets too tight with use, make sure to loosen it. Some of the indicators that a bandage is too tight include numbness, tingling, increased pain, coolness, or swelling in the area below the bandage. If you feel that you need to use a wrap for longer than 48 to 72 hours; a more serious problem may be present and you should talk to your health professional.

    Elevate the injured or sore area while applying ice as well as anytime you are sitting or lying down. Pillows can be used to elevate the affected area. Try to keep the area at or above the level of your heart to help minimize swelling.

  • What is TENS and why use one?

    Posted on May 3, 2012 by Core Products

    The first thing you need to know is that TENS stands for (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). A TENS device uses electrical current to stimulate nerves for therapeutic purposes. It is also called Electro Therapy.

    TENS is non-invasive nerve stimulation that is intended to treat both chronic and acute pain. An easy way to describe what a TENS unit does is, they mask pain signals using electrical current, which offers a period of time after use, where pain is minimized.

    Wikipedia has a good article on TENS units. Click here to read it.

    Did you know: Core Products now carries the full line of Hollywog TENS products in our online store?

  • Let Core Help Educate You About a Variety of Musculoskeletal Clinical Conditions

    Posted on April 23, 2012 by Core Products

    Core Products deployed a new, redesigned version of the company website last November. This updated version has many new features and very robust functionality allowing you to shop with ease. You can see more detailed information, maintain an account, place orders quickly, put items on a wish list and much, much more.

    One of the highlights, that we are very excited about, is the new Clinical Conditions section. This portion of the website has a wide variety of information regarding various Clinical Conditions, including videos about the condition, what products treat that condition and videos describing in detail how to fit the product.

    We have recently deployed the beginning framework of the section and will be adding to it regularly. The Retail version of the website speaks to patients/users, while the Professional version speaks to Professionals, and provides more specific information on billing and merchandising.

    Check back with us over the coming weeks as we continue to develop this resource.
