WHY ICE INJURIES

Icing Injuries has long been recognised as a method to minimising the damage from Sports injuries
including Sprains & Tendonitis.

The Ice reduces pain, metabolism, and muscle spasm thus minimising swelling and blood flow to the area affect this in turn speeds up the recovery time of soft tissue damage

The Ice Bags are an easy, reusable, no mess method of getting ice to the swollen/injured region.
It is important not to put ice directly to the skin as this will lead to frostbite. You should always have a layer between the ice & skin

They are made from a water tight synthetic material with a metal collar and hard durable plastic screw lid to prevent any leakage.
A common acronym to treat injuries is RICE

R-Rest: It is important to not aggravate the injury therefore take the weight or pressure away from the injured area

I-Ice: Icing the injury reduces blood flow to the injured area and speeds up recovery

C-Compression: This also restricts blood flow to the injured area and also assists the icing by keeping the injured area insulated

E-Elevation: Elevating the injured area assists icing and compression by minimising blood flow to that area
 
HOW TO USE ICE BAG/WRAP or ICE N HEAT PACK WRAP (Hot & Cold Pack Wrap)
1. Get the Ice on quickly.
Icing is most effective in the immediate period following an injury. The effect of icing diminishes significantly after about 48 hours.
2. Perform an "ice massage."
Apply ice directly to the injury. Move the ice frequently, not allowing it to sit in one spot.
3. Remember to elevate the injury.
Keep the injured body part elevated above the heart while icing -- this will further help reduce swelling.
4. Check the time.
Never Ice for too long, no more than 15-20 minutes. This can cause further damage to the tissues, including frostbite by icing for too long.
5. Allow time between Icing.
Allow area to warm for at least an hour before redoing the icing routine again.
6. Repeat as required.
Ice as regularly as you need to, so long as the area is warm to touch and has normal sensation before repeating. Remember to avoid icing too long to avoid Frostbite
