Rheumatoid Arthritis

Medical professionals and sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis of the fingers know that heat therapy as well as cold therapy can provide welcome relief from the pain and stiffness of a Rheumatoid Arthritis flare-up.

In addition to Cold Cast’s convenient and effective cooling properties, a Cold Cast can be safely heated in a microwave oven to quickly offer heat therapy to a stiff and painful finger joint.

Cold Cast, LLC recommends heating a cold cast for 3 minutes on 20% power using a 900 watt microwave oven. If a user is unsure of the power of their microwave oven, Cold Cast, LLC recommends starting by heating a Cold Cast for a short duration on the lowest power setting and gradually increasing the time and the power setting to find the result that works best for the user. 


Because all microwave ovens differ, Cold Cast cannot assume any risk for damage to any microwave oven.
