5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 22 Sep 2011
I bought these to help rehabilitate a nasty ankle sprain.

Very flexible, even when straight out of the freezer. Being so flexible, it's very easy to adjust them to whatever shape you need.
They stay cold, even when defrosted.

I haven't used these as heat packs. As ice packs, they're fabulous.

I'm a complete convert to K-tape after my recent purchase.
I bought this tape after extensive research, following a nasty ankle sprain/ligament tear.
I was 2.5 weeks away from running a half marathon and had desperately tried a variety of ankle supports, braces and casts, without success - primarily because as an active athlete, they weren't really suitable.
Following the injury, I'd started applying RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) during the first 48 hours - and then proceeded with stretching, mobility and cross-training exercises.

My ankle was still swollen and painful - and for a period of about a week, it had been keeping me awake at night, due to… Read more
