As an athlete knees are one of the more common achy joints. Whether it be running, jumping, twisting, or falling, knees take a ton of impact. Being that they’re so vital it’s important to take good care of them, the people at THERA°PEARL feel the same way. (It’s always nice to have someone in your corner isn’t it?)
The THERA°PEARL knee wrap comes packaged in a slick plastic box.
The first thing I noticed when I pulled it out of the box is its quality feel. It really feels sturdy. I have had cold/hot packs leak on me in the past, but I have no worries about this one. The strap is really nice, and the Velcro holds tightly. Using it cold requires you to put it in the freezer for two hours, (I left mine in for 8 while I was at work) when I finally put it on my knee (which I have had tendonitis, and several MCL sprains in) I felt instant relief. I like how it contours perfectly to fit your knee. Besides being a cool aesthetic, the beads really fit into the folds and bends of your knee. A good change of pace from some of the more stiff, jagged ice packs out there.
After 20 minutes of cold I decided to heat things up a bit. It suggests you microwave them for:
- 700 Watt Microwave: 40 seconds
- 1000 Watt Microwave: 35 seconds
- 1250 Watt Microwave: 25 seconds
Microwaving it was great, the heat was evenly dispersed and wasn’t too hot. The plastic holding the “pearls” in didn’t seem affected by the heat at all.
All in all I can’t really find anything negative to say about this wonderful product. There’s a reason it’s a product that the NFLPA endorses.

All in all, I cant really find anything negative to say about it. It’s head and shoulders above any ice/knee pack I’ve ever used.

The people at THERA°PEARL were nice enough to give me two of these. So I’m going to give one away to the subscriber who ever submits the best guest post on how they mentally prepare for a workout or athletic event!
