|Is tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, sprained ankle, or arthritis keeping you up nights, limiting your activities? To attain welcome, soothing, healing relief, the Ice It!® Ice Pack, Elbow, Ankle, Foot Wrap is just what you need. Scientifically designed to wrap around the painful joint, the 10.5”x13” padded cover holds THREE cold packs which surround the joint for the ultimate in Cold Therapy.
The three reusable cold packs are held securely, each one its own compartment, and the soft inner layer of the cover shields the skin from tissue damage due to hypothermia. The Ice It!® Ice Pack, Elbow, Ankle, Foot Wrap has well-designed elastic and Velcro® straps that hold it securely in place, hands-free, so that you can move about during your cold therapy treatment. The plush fabric foam padded cover is insulated, which means there is no condensation to drip on you, your clothes, or furniture.
The patented, non-toxic gel in the Cold Packs is a mixture of recycled plant cellulose and salt water. This combination allows it to freeze quickly, but, because of the salt water, remains pliable AND retains its low temperature longer.
Because of the pliability characteristic of the Ice It!® Cold Packs when frozen, they conform perfectly to the shape of the injured area for the maximum therapeutic benefit.
WHY COLD THERAPY?
Of course, you should follow the instructions of your personal physician, but usually doctors recommend the RICE protocol (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate) for the first 24-48 hours to treat an injury or to aid rehabilitation after surgery. After an injury, your body automatically reacts by swelling at the injured site. Application of Cold Therapy at this time helps to slow down the swelling and stimulate the blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin, letting your body begin to heal.
Gentle compression like that provided by the Ice It!® Cold Pack is helpful in limiting and reducing swelling at the site of the injury. This combination of Cold Therapy and Compression will provide the double benefit of two safe, effective, simple techniques to heal the body that much faster.
When it comes to treating chronic pain, even Rheumatoid Arthritis, medical professionals know that alternating cold therapy with heat therapy is also very beneficial in stimulating circulation, reducing swelling, and easing pain.
Limit the length of Cold Therapy to 20 or 30 minutes and wait until your skin is back to a normal temperature before starting another session.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not use Cold Therapy if you are suffering with Reynaud’s Syndrome, paralysis, or areas of impaired sensation (nerve damage).
