The Flex-Ice Reusable Hot & Cold Packs are fantastic for clients who require a hot or cold compress following or between treatments. Or to simply store around the house when the kids hurt themselves – which we all know is inevitable!

To use as a cold compress, simply store the Flex-Ice pack in the freezer so it’s ready for immediate use when required. The unique gel solution within the pack keeps the compress soft so that it can mold to different areas of the body.

Wrap the Flex-Ice pack so that it’s no directly placed onto the skin. Hot and cold compress are indicated for a range of musculoskeletal injuries to reduce inflammation and pain. Research continues to demonstrate the many benefits of cold, heat and combination therapy.

Sole Revolution Functional Orthotics – $95.00
Sole Revolution Functional Orthotic’s offer a unique point of difference to standard Orthotic’s offered by Podiatrists. Each insert has six points of foot support, are able to be worn immediately be the user and are a fraction of the cost of custom Orthotic’s available on the market. Sole Revolution is an Australian owner company which spent a great amount of time and detail researching feet, arches and Orthotic’s. This research led to an understanding that majority of Orthotic’s available on the market are limited in their application as they do not simultaneously support all arches of the feet and neurologically develop muscular strength of the foot. In combination with this majority of companies did not view the foot from a functional perspective. As we walk the feet undergo various phases of gait which requires an amazing amount of functionality, not a static posture. This is perhaps the major unique difference of the Sole Revolution Function Orthotic. Users report an immediate improvement in pain levels, support, lower extremity and core strength, greater hip mobility, increased power & endurance, enhanced running technique and ability and much more. Sole Revolution Functional Orthotic’s are available in a range of sizes including 35/36, 37/38, 39/40, 41/42, 43/44 and 45/46.
Blooms Glucosamine & Chondroitin – $32.95
Glucosamine is responsible for building cartilage within the body. Cartilage provides shock absorption for our joints as well as ensuring smooth movement occurs within joint surfaces. Importantly, if you have a seafood allergy than Glucosamine supplementation is not recommended as it’s commonly derived from crab, lobster or shrimp. Chondroitin is also a compound naturally found within the body and assists with providing nutrients and hydration to cartilage. The Blooms Glucosamine & Chondroitin supplement is particularly useful for individuals who suffer from joint pain or arthritic changes such as Osteoarthritis. Different supplements contain varying amounts of each compound and therefore it’s important to read the label carefully. As a general rule of thumb, it’s recommended that users consume 1500mg/day of Glucosamine sulfate, 1500mg/day of Glucosamine hydrochloride and 1000mg/day or Chondroitin sulfate. We encourage you to discuss this product and any other supplement with a suitably trained professional before consumption.
