  • Stays cold for 20-40 min
SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag:


The Elasto-Gel Hot/Cold Lumbar Wrap can help relieve lower back pain as well as hip or abdominal pain, depending on how it is worn. Velcro straps hold the wrap in place, so it can be worn under clothing and does not need to be used while in a stationary position.

To treat acute hand pain, use the Elasto-Gel Wrap as cold therapy (crypto therapy). The cold pack will reduce swelling and inflammation, meaning less pain. The wrap can be used in cold treatments for 20-40 minutes per application. When not in use, the mitten can be stored in the freezer indefinitely. The Elasto-Gel will remain flexible even at -20 F.

In order to relax muscles, reduce cramps and/or comfort areas of long-term pain, use the Lumbar Wrap as heat therapy. A few seconds in the microwave can turn the wrap into a soothing blanket of relief.

Directions for COLD THERAPY
• Place gel pack in freezer for 2 hours or more.
• Remove pack from freezer and place inside the cloth cover.
• Close compartment and apply compression wrap as shown and secure by attaching the elastic strap.
• Remains flexible after freezing.
The gel pack will maintain cold therapy for 30-60 minutes. It is best to keep an extra gel pack in the
freezer to replace the original that is in use when it is no longer cold. The pack may remain in
freezer until the next use.

Directions for HOT THERAPY
• Heat in a cloth cover.
• Fold the pack in half. Heat in microwave for 20 seconds on each side. Unfold the pack and refold in the
other direction. Heat in the microwave for an additional 20 seconds on each side. This will improve
uniform heating throughout the entire pack. For additional warmth, heat in 10 second increments.
• Remove pack from microwave and wait for one minute before applying to skin.
• Apply compression wrap as shown by attaching the elastic strap.
Gel pack will maintain hot therapy for 20-30 minutes. When pack is no longer hot, reheat in
microwave at 10 second increments until desired temperature is reached. The gel pack may be
stored at room temperature. Test after each 10 second increments.


Remove the outside cover and hand wash in cold water and mild soap. Hang up to dry. Wipe the white inner cover with a damp (not wet) cloth using mild soap or disinfectant. Allow the product to fully air dry before continuing to use.

  1. Deann Marin

    I really like the product. It works well and lasts for a while. I don’t like the velcro, it rips the material. They should put another velcro strip on so that the velcro strap can attach to it and not ruin the material of the product.

  2. beau

    “I bought this for my husband and he uses it everyday. Nice product and fast shipping.

    It stays warm for quite a while.”

  3. Needle

    “I have had back issues on and off for several years. I’ve tried the stick on wraps and smaller heating or cooling pads but the Elasto-Gel Wrap is the first to cover the entire sore area – from mid-back down as well as around the hips. It secures easily around your waist and is adjustable for small to large frames.

    It can be heated or chilled for use. I tend to use the chill approach and the wrap stays cold for well over 20 minutes and stays close to the body while laying down, sitting or light movement around the house.

    It comes in a large plastic bag for easy storage in the freezer so it is always ready.

    Works as promised.”

  4. GriffinDoor

    A nice way to get heat or cold to your lower back. Wrapping ice packs in an ace bandage is a giant pain, and this wrap makes it a snap. Provides support for weakened muscles at the same time. Too bulky to wear under clothes, but that’s not what it’s for.

  5. barefootlove

    “The item arrived promptly and all packaging was in good shape.

    The product itself is wonderful. I bought two.

    What makes this product special?

    1. It does not harden when it freezes. It remains soft and pliable

    2. It is shaped to fit the body and is held in place by a soft Velcro closure so there is no reason you have to hold it in place.

    3. Because it is shaped it applies equal cold to all sides, no having to switch it around

    4. The cold is mild. There is no need to wrap a second layer over the ice gel in order to wear it comfortably

    5. Non-toxic, non-leak gel

    The down side:

    1. More expensive than conventional ice packs

    2. Cant get wet.”

  6. Jay G.

    Unfortunately, the item does not stay cold for more than 10-15 minutes max. It also tends to fray at the edges, so I don’t think it’s going to last very long.

  7. J. Grothoff

    I love this and recommended it also to my sister. It wraps easily and securly and stays cold for relief.

  8. Jean E. Young

    It fits perfectly. It hits the right spots. I use the cold therapy. All of the Elasto-Gel products are great!

  9. Sam

    “We love this back wrap. It is a great size to put around your back, neck and shoulders or a knee. We’ve used it on all of these. It really kills the pain and shrinks those swollen blood vessels.

    Yes we would difinitly recommend this back wrap to anyone with pain.”

  10. Christy

    Doesn’t stay cold. Is easy to use and fits well, however I would not purchase again. I need a back wrap that stays cold.

  11. CC

    I unfortunately hurt myself caring for my mother and my lower back muscles sometimes are swollen, this used a cold pack is great. I use it at work in the car and just watching TV, great relief and made sturdy – highly recommend!

  12. Michael Gillette

    I was introduced to this device at my physical therapist’s. I loved it there and still do. Really works to quiet sore lower back issues. With the hook and loop straps it holds in place well and a great bonus is that it doesn’t get you wet like an ice pack or ice bag. Highly recommended.

  13. Thomas Allen

    I use it frequently, and like it a lot, but it can heat a little unevenly in the microwave (some spots really hot, some a little less hot). Nonetheless, I use it nearly every day, and it provides great pain relief for me.

  14. Lulubelle

    Wonderful for my frequently aching back. I leave it in the freezer all the time so it is always ready.

  15. Ed Oliver

    The Elasto-Gel Back wrap Will not stay cold over 5-10 minutes. I would not recommend this item for anyone to buy.

  16. Robert A. Prout

    Help tremendously after my hip replacement by rotating it 90 degree’s to ice the area.

  17. E. Masch

    I was disappointed in this purchase. It is not cold enough and does not stay cold for long. Plus, then you need to put it back in the freezer to get it cold again. So you can maybe get 15-30 minutes of “coolness” before shelving it again. It is not very helpful for icing my pulled stomach muscle.

  18. Dr. Earl E. Grant

    The gel seems to flow to one place. It is difficult to almost impossible to get gel to fill the small lumbar section.

  19. nelleo

    Works great for back pain or shoulder.

  20. Bhamdo

    I received this as a gift. I love it! Haven’t tried hot yet but cold is wonderful. Wrap holds cold where it needs to be. Flexibility even right out of freezer is a real plus. Great product.

  21. Donna L. Bresnick

    I bought this Back Wrap to use when my spinal stenosis acts up and my back hurts. It functioned as it should. It “iced” my back appropriately, kept cold in the freezer, and stayed put when I velcroed it on. My only criticisms (hence the 4 stars) are that it tended to “bunch up” but could be shaken out and smoothed out. It was also a bit of a challenge to velcro on as it was a bit bulky to stretch around my waist. I would recommend it for anyone who needs a cold back wrap.

  22. sueschrader0

    I frequently wake up with an aching back. The heat loosens the muscles in the small of my back. Can’t believe the difference this makes.

  23. Retired One

    Very useful for the lumbar and shoulders.

  24. Dallas Reader

    This is a wonderful product–my husband’s back pain has been considerably lessened with no mess or water leakage.

  25. Vahid Ghods

    heating it doesn’t work properly

  26. B. Cat

    I use this almost every night

  27. GotBeanEs

    This is great for my shoulder which was broken. So flexible and useful.

  28. CK

    Doesn’t stay cold very long, doesn’t even start out that cold. Very disappointing. I thought this would be the answer to my nagging problem, but unfortunately it’s not. Good try, people! Keep working, please!

  29. HeyTeacher31

    Good ice pack, but not for a person who is PLUS size or for any large (college football sized) males. Definitely holds the cold, but shifts around if you are moving around (okay – I should sit still – but I’m a mom and they are well… get the idea!) If I use the square or rectangles – they make me stay in one place…..

  30. Yvonne

    This was worth every penny. I have really bad back problems and this really helps.

  31. BluesHarp

    Love it.

  32. Souda

    Great Product

  33. CJSKE

    Love the product, but the price was too high. Also it doesn’t stay cold as long as I would like. It is very durable and makes icing much easier.

  34. Mike Mc

    Works OK.

  35. RLL

    This ice pack has been a savior to my back!!! I love the dip that covers the lower back as this is where I often have pain. The only problemis that the Velcro sticks to the outside material and it pills.

  36. Mysticman

    Overall I like the back wrap and I would recommend it to those who need ice on the lower back. The velcro straps are a little clumsy, but not bad. No one is going to stand up and walk around with this thing on. It will fall off. That’s OK though. It does what it should and is not TOO cold. Seems to last just about the right amount of time

  37. Pen Name

    Product came on time as described. Works perfectly. A+++

  38. Zestybean

    Love these gel pack cold /hot packs! they work great for about an hour, which is more than what health professionals recommend when icing or heating (20-30 min on, then off). I have several of these packs in different sizes and they all work great. I even give them as gifts! Highly recommend using them.

  39. Christopher Collins

    Works great. Highly recommend it!!!!!

  40. Joy

    Elastic-Gel hot packs are amazing! They heat up easily and work really well!!! Love it! ??

  41. John MacGovern

    This thing is great, very cold on your back for about 15-20 mins…Havent tried to heat it up but based on the quality of the products I have bought from them, it should work fairly well.

  42. AM

    This item is wonderful for the back, stays cold and very comfortable to wear. I highly recommend.

  43. Lupe Rubio

    My husband and I love this Elasto-Gel as well. Thank you, we have several sizes now.

  44. R Anderson

    Fits just like it says it would only thing I don’t think it gets cold enough and does not stay cold long enough I don’t think.

  45. DMK

    mother in law loves it

  46. C. King

    Returning this , I was not pleased with the quality for the cost of the item. I have used this 3 times and the bottom gel is all balled up and will not lay flat. It does not stay cold for even 20 minutes. The velcro is tricky and if the velcro touches the satin part it has pulls on the material. The end of the wrap came undone and the gel pack is exposed. Also, when I put it in the freezer in the zip bag provided with the product it gets ice flakes in the bag making the wrap feel wet. The side that goes on back is a satin material, the outside is like a thin neoprene. Not impressed.

  47. Henry

    product was great, service was great

  48. Meredith Muizers

    I absolutely love it. Fits great and last for a while. Singing its praises.

  49. Dominic T Panebianco

    A little flimsy

  50. Sherrryl cranford-coffey

    absolutely great! I just throw it in the freezer and take it out as needed. Really helpful!

  51. Patti S.

    it rolls up and can’t get it back in original shape

  52. tinker

    works great,the only down side I have is that it only says cold for about 20 to 25 min`s

  53. jay

  54. virginia hall

    It doesn’t seem to get cold enough or stay cold very long.

  55. philip aievoli

    some wear on belt after some months

  56. fair1

    “I didn’t get a chance to use it, it is probably good, but it is quite bulky /heavy.

    If you can handle it and it meets your needs it?s fine. Keep the packaging, just in case you may want to return it!”

  57. Happy Theologian

    This is good, but I don’t like it nearly as well as the neck roll from the same company. This tends to bunch up and has to be flattened out again. Also, it does not retain the cold very long. Still, overall, I think it is useful for low back pain.

  58. JB

    Finction as described

  59. Mary Belyea

    But difficult to attach

  60. jeep t

    My old one lasted many years. Both my wife and I use it. The only complaint I have is the recommended time for heating in the microwave is grossly understated. My microwave wattage is higher than the recommended but the stated time doesn’t allow the wrap to heat sufficiently.

  61. mtwrdsmth

    This is, by far, the best ice pack ever for my husband’s back injury. He loves that he can wear it walking/moving around. It retains cold for just the right amount of time, and refreezes quickly.

  62. Redc

    Fabulous, soft and large ice pack.

  63. Customer

    Just simply awesome. Could be a little colder but overall great product.

  64. Casey Dull

    Doesn’t get cold enough.

  65. krishna k. karki


  66. Hammock Mike

    Fit is good, quality is good – my only issue is that it doesn’t seem to stay cold long enough.

  67. wendyb

    Bought for my chronic lower back pain. I love this product only problem it doesn’t stay cold long enough. Heat is fine but when you want it cold even leaving it in my freezer for days in the bag it still o my lasts about 10 minutes

  68. Patty Powers

    It’s a great product. Matter of fact, I just finished using it before I read this email. It does help with the pain in my back. Thank you for a wonderful product.

  69. Dawn Roland

    works great, but its a bit big for my figure.

  70. Nancy Seaton

    This is just what my aching back ordered!

  71. Customer

    Works great for ice therapy on my lumbar spinal fusion, helps to minimize taking pain medication.

  72. James Doyle

    Great for quick lower back relief just pop it in the microwave and put it on.

  73. Al Pal

    these used to stay cold pretty long but the newer ones seem to get warm pretty quickly so I’ve moved on to another brand

  74. Silvia

    Ahhhhh! MAkes my lower back feel relaxed and pain free.

  75. Kim McCoy

    Was bulky. And never got as cold as it should have

  76. Lou

    Used this last night to sleep in. I like it because it is cold enough and soft enough to use to help fall asleep if you have back issues.

  77. UnitedAsOne

    Purchased this for lumbar pain due to vehicle collision. Quality is excellent and it certainly reduces pain attributed to inflammation. I anticipate getting many years of use out of this back wrap.

  78. sueshopper

    This is a great product. They never drip or leak, they take up very little freezer space & they stay cold along time. I used the smaller ankle wrap while recovering from a injury & have since purchased the back wrap for my husband. He loves it, the velcro straps are very helpful. This is well worth the money.

  79. Millie

    Glad I spent a little more money for this one. The part that sways down over my sacrum is marvelous, and not something I’ve seen on other products. The elastic band holds it nicely while I work around the house. I did purchase the large even though I am relatively small, but the elastic holds it up just fine.

  80. Earl Rakestraw

    Works very well after a day at work relaxing the muscles in my lower back.

  81. Thomas J. Neil

    Doesn’t really get cold enough.

  82. Bert

    doesn’t stay cold long, but holds heat pretty well.

  83. Customer

    Works fine so far, more effective when lying down. When upright the tail-bone section doesn’t stay flush to your butt.

  84. Jessica

    I use this daily on my back. It is what my physical therapists office used and recommended. I love that it’s oversized and the Velcro stands the test of time.

  85. Michael C. Zambito

    Made in the USA! This works great as all of their products. Long lasting cold really helps with targeting the effected area, I would recommend this product line to anyone who is in the market for this type of product.

  86. Jeanette Darling

    Purchased the largest one they had for my husband, fits good and feel comfortable when we heat it in the microwave.

  87. kathy h.

    dont bother, this gel crumbles when you freeze it, you can shake it but it never goes back into the shape as advertised in picture , and cold only lasts 15 minutes.

  88. Judy Spurgeon

    Relieved my back pain.. surprised how fast it worked..

  89. Sharon

    Really great for my sciatica!

  90. Pat Kaufman

    Just great, it really relieves the pain.

  91. Lauren Boyd

    these are the best for back injuries. I have a broken back and this helps me before I go to bed.

  92. Kristen

    Absolutely awesome quality and fit!

  93. Customer

    just received but if it woorks the shoulder one it is a ok

  94. Robert A. Sadler

    Works great with heat or cold.

  95. jGw

    Arrived sooner than expected and was excellent for post-op recovery.

  96. M. K. Oeding

    Use it after all my racquetball matches.

  97. Hamilton Collins

    Comfortable and cold on the lower back. Back feels much better the next after tennis when I use it.

  98. RB

    Amazing fit and cooling. I have three different elasto gel products and they are all fantastic fitting and working.

  99. Vic Tomp

    I have only had this Elasto-Gel for like 6 weeks and already the velcro strap isn’t sticking to the belt and thus the belts wants to fall off. Aren’t you supposed to be able to walk around while wearing this thing?

  100. AKN

    “Recently I somehow severly wrenched my back to the point that it was in spasm so bad that I could hardly move at times.

    I tried everything including pills and massage but this is the one thing that seemed to relax the strained muscles the most.

    It is so intense a relaxation response in my muscles that I heat this up in the microwave and wrap it around me and within ten minutes it puts me to sleep. I can only use it at night for this reason but I sleep through the night like a baby when I use this. The moist heat is so much better than a heating pad. I wish it stayed warm longer than twenty minutes but usually since I fall asleep so fast in this it doesn’t matter. If your back is in pain I strongly recommend this.”

  101. Sam O

    I got this for my mother who has chronic lower back pain, she really likes it.

  102. John Ratchford

    I unfortunately (for me) have had 7 back surgery’s pain is still a problem, medicine dulls it, but also dulls the senses! the back wrap helps me tremendously, without the drug reaction, I sit and watch TV and the wrap does it’s thing without any interference, I highly recomend it, it is extremely well made, durable, and comfortable, one thing that I might add, it is not just for the back! I also use it on my left shoulder, for “bursitist” what also amazes me is, how long the gel, retains it’s “cold” wonderful product!

  103. W. J. Wyskida

    My wife had recent back surgery and has been told by her Doctor to use ice 4 times a day. The Elasto is perfect for this application.

  104. Anna

    I was introduced to the elasto-gel line by my chiropractor and have been using them ever since. They are so easy to use and stay on even if I need to move or get up and do something briefly.

  105. Homecenter

    I have yet to try it hot, so I can’t speak to that side of it’s claim, but it is heaven as a cold compress. It does not get hard in the freezer and does not get too cold either, it is just right to wrap around a strained joint or muscle and it stays cold for a long time. I first experienced it in a physical therapy place; where it was the last thing they did to my knee after the intense workout. I came to find it almost orgasmic. In short, great cold.

  106. Ben P. Thamrong

    If you have lower back pain, I strongly suggest picking one of these up! After a long day at work I am very happy to come home and pull this out of the freezer and strap it on. Very comfortable and always stays soft! Also holds the cold for at least an hour or so. Very soothing relief!

  107. DLG

    I bought this in s/m and l/xl because i have a very large girth. The s/m turned out to be perfect for me because the straps are so long that it can accommodate just about anyone. A man would have to be quite large to need the L/XL i think. I have no plans to return my L/XL because the coldpack itself is aittle bit larger than the s/m and works really well around my neck and shoulders as well as my lower back and tush. I even used it for my tennis elbow and it is so comfortable. I first bought this for an inflamed sacroiliac because it is the only item that goes far enough down my spine (below the waist) to get to the sacrum (?) region. I also love that it stays cold for so long (at least 45 minutes) without being uncomfortably cold such that it could damage my skin tissue. The only downside is that the fabric can get “picked” from the velcro strap and no matter how careful you are, it cannot be avoided. However picks in the fabric will not hurt its functionality so not a big deal. I loved this so much that i also bought a few other configurations of the wrap as well. Very happy.

  108. Firecoop27

    This product is even better then I expected!!! It chills quickly and wraps around anything!!! Have already used it on my neck, my head and, sons shoulder ! Really great stuff

  109. Joyce Gorman

    Bought this at suggestion of personal trainer. Particularly like that it can be used for either hot or cold treatments.

  110. Staci Laughlin

    I even use it for other areas on my body. Thank you for a good product and fast shipping. Will recommend to others

  111. Jamie

    This wrap is too bulky and is hard to get heated just right. Not recommended. The knee wrap manufactured by the same company works great, though.

  112. Scott Kube

    I’ve had two back surgeries in the last 5 months. This works excellent as a cold pack & holds the cold for over an hour! Haven’t tried it as a hot pack yet, but I assume that works just as good.

  113. Momof3

    I bought this for my child who has played ice hockey. Unfortunately, my child sustained a back injury from this sport. We are always looking for products to help ease this back pain. This item is easily frozen in the freezer and wrapped around the lower back. My child has stated that it does help ease the back pain temporarily.

  114. Snap

    The mobility of this gel pack is great! My clients find it easier to use because they can velcro it on and go about the house getting things done without having to dedicate time to icing or heating.

  115. Paul Maloof

    This lumbar-back wrap is very good. I play alot of tennis; 6 days a week on average. When I get home, this lumbar wrap is very good to relax the lower back muscles.

  116. Thunderbird

    Have kept this in two different freezers for several days but it simply doesn’t stay cold very long at all. Should have returned it.

  117. MEL SHERR

    very bulky and heavy… does not get cold when in freezer… Velcro is ripping away fabric.. rip off… worst back support I ever purchased

  118. Elena Graves

    “I have scoliosis. My chiropractor advised I buy a wrap to use before and after, but also during my upcoming train travel. So glad I decided on this one. The Elasto-Gel wrap contours to your body. The entire wrap heats/cools, so multiple packs are not needed. The 20 minutes it stays cold is perfect. An application of more than 20 minutes of either cold or heat can actually reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. It’s made in the U.S.A.

    I would highly recommend this product.”

  119. J. Broussard

    Great product . Cold. Is perfect temperature stays on while you move around . Hold up forever . I bought a new one after 10 years of use. Better than any cold back you can buy. That is why my physical therapist also uses it.

  120. cindybug

    “this is a wonderful thing to have when you need ice!

    I love it ! Not to cold yet just enough to do the job!!”

  121. Fay E. Chandler

    Purchased this to relieve pain of a bulging disk in my back. Unfortunately it doesn’t get cold enough to be effective. Will return it.

  122. Alisa D.

    I use this all the time and like it so much, I bought one for my mom. It fits well and works much better than other heat wraps I used previously.

  123. Jan

    Hot or Cold. When I need relief it is there for me. I keep mine in the freezer in a Ziplock container. Much easier that putting in and out of the bag.

  124. Eeflick

    Excellent product. Performed as stated. Used post Laminectomy surgery. Stays in place with velcro strap in any position or can lay prone and rest on area of incision or pain.
