Uses of the Flexible Ice Pack with Wrap for Hot & Cold Therapy

Because the pack has wide Velcro straps and a large surface area, it can be used on just about any aching body part.  It can be used for pain in the back, abdominal pain, and neck pain.

It can be used after surgery to replace a broken hip, knee or shoulder.  It can be tightly wrapped around the calves or ankles if you sustain a muscle sprain of the calf or sprain your ankle.

Used as Ice Pack

When used as an ice pack, it is recommended that you apply ice in the first 2 days after sustaining an injury.  If you don’t have one already in the freezer, it is recommended that you freeze it for about two hours prior to applying it to the affected body area.

Wear it for thirty minutes and then pop it back in the freezer for thirty minutes while the sore area warms up a bit.

It comes with its own wrappings so you don’t need to use a towel or cloth between the ice pack and the skin.  It means there is no risk of burning the skin as can happen with other ice packs.

The Velcro straps allow you to remain mobile while wearing the pack and the gel remains flexible even at freezer temperatures.

Used as Heating Pad

When used as a heating pad, it can be used to relieve muscle spasm of the back, neck or other body area.  Heat is not generally recommended until you are at least 48 hours after your injury.

If you don’t have a microwave, you only need to submerge the pack in very hot water for about ten minutes before applying it to your aching muscles.

If you have a microwave, put it in the microwave on full strength for thirty minutes and then put it on your sore area for thirty minutes.

After that, you can let the area cool down for a half an hour at room temperature or use another ice pack to cool the area before applying heat to the area again.

Alternating ice and heat is one way of relieving inflammation and muscle spasm at the same time.
