I was recently sent a Thera Pearl Neck Wrap to try and it could not have come at a better time. A little over a year ago as I stood up from the couch one evening I felt a pop in my neck and pain set in instantly. I am not one to overreact with pain, so I started trying to work out the kink by rubbing and trying to turn my head. The pain was intense and I could not rotate my neck. Immediately I walked to the cabinet looking for any relief. Used a rubbing cream, took Advil, got a washcloth hot and used it…no relief! I had to have my husband help me in to bed and I cradled my neck with a blanket and hoped for relief in the morning. Well, morning came and I had not slept all night due to pain and I had to get to work. You have no idea how much our head and neck is required constantly as you drive until you are in so much pain and cannot rotate your head! Got to work (in a medical building) and the Nurse I work with demanded me to Urgent Care downstairs. I was diagnosed with a bulging disc and was sent immediately back upstairs to the Physical Therapy office where they accepted me ASAP. 11 sessions later, I had relief! I was told once it happens it can come back at anytime and I now can recognize the symptoms and know the proper exercises and hot/cold wrap treatments!

My wrap arrived just days before I woke up one morning with that same pain I had over a year ago! It was the beginning pain and mild, but still hurt with any large range of motion in my neck. Then I remembered-The Thera Pearl Wrap! Perfect timing! I first put it in the Microwave for 50 seconds and the heat and comfort of the wrap was amazing! I wish I had 2 of them because I needed the hot/cold treatment and it takes about 2 hours in the freezer. I loved the soft beaded design and it just felt soothing on my neck. I stuck it in the freezer and waited it out. Put it on cold for about 20 minutes, then in the microwave another 50 seconds and did a hot treatment. Back in the freezer for a few hours to start the process over. I did my neck exercises and rested in between Thera Pearl Wrap treatments and in only 2-3 days I had complete relief! Better then the 2 weeks the last episode.
