Crohn’s disease

“After being diagnosed with Crohn’s, my life was altered drastically. Every day is a constant reminder because I have to always plan for the possibility of a painful or embarrassing situation. In my particular case, a blockage in my intestines would occur approximately every 3 months at which time I would have to be admitted to the hospital. In between hospital stays, I would sometimes have to go to the ER as the pain became intolerable. This became my life. During one of my hospital stays, my brother asked me to try the Gladiator Therapeutics blanket. I began using it immediately. That was six months ago, and I have not been back to the hospital since. When I feel pain coming on that normally would have sent me to the ER, I use the blanket and usually within about 30 minutes, the pain is gone. I could not be more thankful for something that has allowed me to have my life back.”

“I am a licensed massage therapist. After years of working, I developed arthritis in both hands. The right hand was diagnosed with severe arthritis that affected the use of my fingers and thumb. My doctor recommended surgery that would require 8-12 weeks of recovery. I started using the Gladiator Therapeutic wrap and immediately noticed the pain subsiding. After several days I was able to continue working and have avoided surgery. Gladiator Therapeutics gave me the ability to continue a career that I enjoy.”

“After I bumped into a huge mirror in our garage, it fell on my foot. My foot immediately swelled up and turned black and blue. That night, I wrapped the blanket around it and slept with it on the entire night. When I got up, there was no swelling and the color was back to normal.”

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

“I have suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome for the past several years. I had trouble riding a bike, typing, and even blow drying my hair. Concerned, I found some exercises online. They did alleviate some of the pain, but did not eliminate it. Then I heard about the Gladiator Therapeutics Blanket. I purchased a blanket and started wearing it at night while I slept. Within several weeks of using it, I noticed a significant decrease in my pain level. I can now enjoy riding my bike and have resumed other activities as well.”

Muscle Pain

“I use a Gladiator blanket, usually at the top of my back, when I go to bed. I find I need to do this after doing workout sessions or physical work like digging. It helps prevent the stiffness and soreness of muscles in my shoulder. It has also worked on occasional lower back or leg muscle stiffness/soreness. My wife and I would sometimes argue about whose turn it was to use the blanket, but now we each have one. Problem solved!”

Hip Pain

“I was experiencing a fever that reached 102 degrees along with extreme pain in my hip. My doctor admitted me to the hospital so that we could find out what was causing my fever and hip pain. Eight days later, I was released with no relief from the pain other than heavy pain medication (Oxycontin). They could not give me a good answer as to what was causing my fever other than inflammation in my hip area. On a scale from 1-10 with 10 being the highest level of pain, I was experiencing a 12. Upon trying the blanket, I noticed a reduction in my pain level without the use of Oxycontin, and my fever was under control. Within 3-5 days the pain level was down to 5 and after approximately 2 weeks the pain was gone. It was such a relief to not only get rid of the pain but to also not become dependent on a narcotic drug.”

Back Pain

“My wife has a severe herniated disc at c6/7 ( she went through the windshield of a car 30 years ago). I have maintained her with chiropractic care, and now that she sleeps with the blanket, I only treat her half as much as I used to. Last week, I pulled a hamstring water skiing. I slept with the blanket every night, and within three days, I was walking without a limp. I highly recommend the blanket for anyone with acute or chronic pain.”

“I have had the Gladiator blanket for about 6 months and use it whenever I have sore muscles or an aching back due to extended periods of sitting or driving. I apply the blanket to the area that is giving me distress and find that within about 10 minutes there is a gentle relaxation of the area that the blanket covers. If I use a heating pad with the Gladiator blanket the effect occurs even faster. After about 20 to 30 minutes I remove the blanket and the pain is reduced. I am then able to go back to my daily activities with minimal distress and freedom of movement. I have great faith in this product and how well it works.”
