Comments about ThermiPaq Icy Cold Pain Relief Wrap, Large, Large (8 x 14 inches), 1 ea:
The pads are helpful for chronic lumbar and left leg pain. If I ice when I go to bed, I can get two or three hours of sleep because my pain level diminishes from the 6-8 level I am used to tolerating to a 3. I like the fact the the 14 by 16 pads are large enough to wrap around my ankle and lower leg and can be strapped in place. I had been using peas - but the therpaqs are much less messy and last much longer. They have been helpful following physical therapy as well.

When the body is injured, it responds with a series of repair functions. One of these functions includes an increase of blood flow to the affected area. While this is part of the natural healing process, it can sometimes lead to inflammation that results in swelling and pain. Applying the appropriate use of hot and cold therapies can help bring relief to these discomforts. In most instances, doctors suggest a combination of four basic methods for a speedy recovery – a technique they refer to as R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression and elevation). For the "ice" part of the equation, applying cold immediately after injury can reduce both pain and inflammation. Continue with cold applications until the swelling has gone down, which typically takes a few days. After the swelling subsides, you can then begin applying heat to increase blood flow into the injured area. This improved circulation aids in expediting the healing process and improving flexibility. In order for an injury to heal properly, you should immobilize the injured area for 3 to 6 days. Using the injured body part too early can cause further damage and prolong recovery.
Heat Therapy vs Cold Therapy
The type of therapy you need depends on the type of injury you have incurred. It is important to determine the appropriate therapy as using the wrong treatment can actually cause additional harm.
