Almost 2 weeks ago at Roller Derby practice, I thought I was ready to do something that I was sooooo not ready to do. I played a game called Sharks and Minnows. The Minnows have a goal to get across the room without being tagged by a shark. It sounds easy right? Um, no. It’s hard and a bit scary! But I was doing it! I was doing O.K., then suddenly I was not so O.K.
I left my derby stance and was in an upright position…major no no and our coaches tell us all the time “get low, derby stance!”. Well, these ladies know what they are talking about. I don’t think I will leave derby stance again. I busted my tailbone HARD. Oh.My. How it hurt…and still hurts…and will continue to hurt for a long time. I learned my lesson. Derby stance is burned into my crippled and scarred brain for sure!
RSD and injuries like this can be very hard to handle. My brain can hold on to this pain for much longer than the actual injury will last. Heat is my friend! The Thermal-Aid Zoo Animal may be aimed at children, but Mr. Happy Hippo sure is my friend right now! He is cute! Easy to use, forms around the area you need him to be. I like him, I love him. He can be heated and he can be cooled. He is pretty universal!
They are not just limited to this cute little Hippo! Check out Ollie! I need him too!
Heating and cooling packs by Thermal-Aid were developed by our Bio-Engineers and Doctors that worked closely with milling experts using a unique patented process, which removes the embryo/germ tip cap and outer coat from each kernel of corn. This leaves the purest and cleanest portion of the corn product. This process hardens the specialized de-germinated corn, allowing it to hold temperatures evenly for long periods of time. It also eliminates mold, fungi and foul odors often associated with natural heating/cooling products.
Thermal-Aid doesn’t just offer these cute little zoo animals, they also have other items available if you are not into cute snuggly things.
Fact that makes Thermal-Aid stand out…
What makes it different from the competitors, is it is made from a bioengineered corn product that has had all of the ingredients that are attached to a piece of corn, that would normally allow mold and fungi growth removed from the product. Then it is hydrated, super-heated which allows it to holds temperatures for longer periods of time, even longer than the products found in the medical and veterinarian field.
One Not So Average Mama reader will win a Thermal-Aid Zoo Animal of their very own!
