Reusable Ice Packs
The application of ice is extremely common for the treatment of most sports and occupational conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. When applied correctly, ice can be of enormous benefit to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. Physical Therapists agree that following an acute injury, ice should be the cornerstone of initial treatment, as well as rest, compression, and elevation of the affected body part. Make sure to apply the ice or cold pack for 10 to 20 minutes, 3 or more times a day. Don’t place ice directly on to the skin, wrap it in a towel first to avoid ice burn!
