Hot & Cold Therapy
Reusable Gel Pad
How Does The TheraPedi®️ Work?
The application of hot and cold therapy is widely recognised as an effective means of helping relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Cold therapy should ideally commence shortly after an injury is sustained, whereas hot therapy is advised for chronic or more long-term pain. Alternating heat and cold is also thought to reduce exercise induced muscle pain.
When using TheraPedi for cold therapy, it works by reducing blood flow to an affected area of the foot and ankle which in turn reduces inflammation and swelling, minimising pain and discomfort.
Once an affected area of the foot or ankle has been cooled and any swelling has been reduced, the TheraPedi can then be used to apply heat in order to get the blood flowing freely again. It may sound like a strange concept to slow the blood flow down only to speed it up again soon after, but this helps to “clean” the affected area and to ensure that fresh blood with all of its nutrients can be delivered to assist healing and repair.
In addition to hot and cold treatment, the TheraPedi also offers an adjustable level of compression therapy across any given application site.

Its multi-positional design offers targeted relief from; tired feet and sore heels, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, sprained ankles, shin splints, bunion pain, broken toes and many other pathologies of discomfort.
