I’ve said before that I suffer from plantar fasciitis (PF). I usually have it under control, but after having the baby I’ve had a lot of flare ups (probably since I haven’t lost all that baby weight on top of carrying around a baby hippo and adding to my foot strain). I definitely am in need of some relief so you can understand my excitement when NatraCure asked me if I wanted to review their Cold Therapy Socks.
I received the full product in exchange for my honest review.
These cold therapy socks are soft and comfortable, and the ice packs are located in just the right places. I placed the socks in the freezer when I first received them, and then didn’t get a chance to use them right away. When I did try them a few days later, they were quite cold and were covered in freezer fairy dust. I worried that would make them uncomfortable to my skin, but that was not the case. The inside of the socks was still soft to touch. The instructions say to keep the cold therapy socks on no longer than 20 minutes and to not walk once wearing the socks. So I got myself comfortable on the couch once the little guy was happy in his playpen. Of course, since there’s always something to do, I grabbed hubby’s shirt to sew back on a button that recently popped off, then I got comfortable on the couch with my cold therapy socks and my sewing kit. There are pockets on both sides of the socks to provide a cold pack on the tops and bottoms of your feet. That felt great on my tired feet and the cold therapy really helped relieve some of the PF strain. My first time using them I could only stand the cold for about 10 minutes though, but my feet felt good for the rest of the evening. These cold therapy socks are definitely something I’m keeping stored in the freezer and at the ready for any time my PF flares up or after a long walk around the neighborhood.
