A Better Back: 8 hours of ice therapy or 3 hours of moist heat therapy right at your desk!

Patient compliance. Can be a big a problem for a physician, trainer or therapist. I’m sure ALL of my doctor and therapist friends out there can Identify with this:

Doctor: Based on my examination findings, you’re
going to have to apply (ice compresses –or- moist heat) to your back and neck to
help reduce spasms, inflammation and pain. You’ll need to do this 15-20 minutes
at least 3 times per day for the next 2 weeks…

Patient: But..but I have to work, I don’t have
time or have a way to use (ice or heat) at work. I won’t be able to do that.

Doctor: Well, that’s my recommendation, and it's your body. You’re going to need to find a way. Isn’t there a lunch room at work where you can keep an ice pack?

It’s a constant battle for a doctor or therapist to get a patient to comply with some simple home instructions like applying ice or heat to help them get better. Until now, you had to rely on the freezer or microwave at work…IF there actually is one. But now, thanks to A Better Back, you can have an amazing ice pack that will last 6-8 hours or moist heating pad that will last up to 3 hours in your office to help sooth your aches and pains. All packaged nicely in a sharp looking comfortable ultra suede microfiber back pack.

When I first saw this and realized that I could have 8 hours of ice available WITHOUT A FREEZER, I was amazed. I mean, think of all the uses for this. Especially for athletes or anyone who does physical labor out in the Hot Florida Sun!!! I bike for 1-2 hours on Saturday and/or Sunday. With this ice pack I can go for an extended bike ride and keep relatively cool. For those who work in the cold, imagine strapping on a heating pad that keeps your warm for 2-3 hours at a time.
No more can patients tell us that they can’t apply ice or heat to their conditions because they are at work all day or they’re going on a long road trip. A Better Back changed the game and made a nice, convenient way for our patients to apply ice and heat throughout the day without having to immediately recharge the ice or heat right after use.

Freeze the ice pack and you have 6-8 hours of cold. Microwave the hot pack for just 3 minutes and you get 3 hours of moist heat. Now, I'm no Billy Mays, but if you have aches and pains and your doctor or therapist told you to apply ice or apply heat...You need A Better Back. You can visit their web site, and check it out for yourself…
All for just 1-easy payment
Enjoy…And tell them Dr. Narson sent you
