We always stock ice and heat packs in plentiful supply from strains, sprains and injury. It can be confusing knowing how and when to apply them so we’ll give you some clues right here! Ice or Cold Therapy Ice therapy is also known as cryotherapy or cold therapy and is an integral part of the treatment of sports injuries. As taught in R.I.C.E (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation), ice therapy is used in the early (acute) stage of a sports injury to relieve pain, prevent swelling, cool tissue temperature and prevent further tissue damage following the initial injury. Ice treatment is most commonly used for acute injuries. If you have a recent injury (within the last 48 hours) where swelling is a problem, you should be using ice treatment. Ice packs can help minimize swelling around the injury. Ice packs are often used after injuries such as an ankle sprain have occurred. Applying an ice pack early and often for the first 48 hours will help minimize swelling. Decreasing swelling around an injury will help to control the pain. Ice treatments may also be used for chronic conditions, such as overuse injuries in athletes. In this case, ice the injured area after activity to help control inflammation. Never ice a chronic injury before activity. Our ice packs reduce swelling and offers muscle / joint pain relief. Our gel allows the pack to remain flexible when frozen, making it easy for the ice pack to conform to any part of the body. Chiropractic Flex-Ice Chiropractic Flex-Ice is our recommended re-useable cold pack. It is freezable and Non-Toxic. Use for pain relief, muscle spasm, sprain, strain, bruises and also for headaches, toothaches, minor burns and insect bites. Every house should have Chiropractic Flex-Ice for immediate relief. Simply place in the freezer compartment. Chiropractic Flex-Ice comes with complete instructions on use and contra-indications. Even if it’s been stored in a refrigerator it maintains a gel like viscosity, making it easy to wrap around inflamed joints to get better surface area coverage.
