Once I thought my body was impervious to physical suffering and the ravages of age. Time proved that accident, illness, and the aging process disrupt general well-being. Oh, to again be free of time’s aches and pains!
I never was the athletic sort. A dip in the pool, volleyball, and bowling were the extent of my own recreational and competitive activities. Still I learned to appreciate and encourage physical fitness, swimming, the gym, running, hiking, and the list goes on…. Exercise is a good way to get and stay healthy. I encourage my now adult kids as well as their own kids to workout and stay fit.
Athletics and the practice of any sport–competitive swimming, bowling, cross country, track, soccer, basketball even cheer leading–can make the body’s tendons and muscles sore. The best way to avoid discomfort is to avoid the torment of healing.
Why not remain injury-free? Make Ace Sports Tape, Braces, and Supports work for you. Tape and strengthen those joints so prone to strain then, if you oops, treat them with Ace Bandages and NEW multi-use Hot and Cold Compresses.
I have a long time work-related injury. A specialist medically prescribed Tens machine to help alleviate its tender, throbbing torment. The therapist suggested it be bandaged on and used with ice to maximize electrical nerve stimulation.
The Reusable Advanced Multipurpose Hot & Cold Compress in its own soft elastic pouch coupled with an Ace Velcro Closure Elastic Bandage 3″ wide Antimicrobial make it stay where it is put. No more slipping and sliding, no more applying then reapplying, no more aggravation, I can be mobile during the treatment not fixed or flat on my back.
Reality Check: My injury affects the flexibility and stability of the rest of my body. I trust 3M products for quality, support, and comfort enough that I decided to try Ace Knee Stabilizer for the long haul on my “good” knee. Preventing more pain and injury is a good thing, don’t you think?
ONE winner will receive an ACE Hot/Cold Reusable Compress and an ACE bandage.
