The Uses Of Hot And Cold Packs

Thermal Wrap Reusable Hot And Cold
Hot and cold therapy is often more effective for many uses than any type of over the counter drug. It is recommended for many pain sufferers. It is a great alternative choice for those who do not want to take medicine or want to try something different if their bodies have become immune to any other type of over the counter medicine. The American Pain Society states almost 10 percent of those Americans that live in chronic pain that could be helped with hot and cold therapy. If you have a more serious illness like cancer or liver disease, you probably do not fall into this category, but if you do, it may be a great alternative to traditional medicine. Ice therapy, compressed gel packs, and hot cold packs can all help to alleviate pain in many cases.

Here are some common indications of those who would be most able to benefit from alternative therapy.

If you have hurt yourself recently with a muscle or joint strain or have any other injury that is causing any part of your body to swell up, then this is for you. Also, internal aching does not have to be solved with over the counter medicine. You can try hot cold packs for that also. The heat and the cold give your body therapy and realization that it needs to get you healed again.

There are also some chronic problems that can be fixed with compressed gel packs also. These include flares of pain, that come along with chronic conditions such as migraines, osteoarthritis injuries from sports, and other chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia.

How to use hot packs:

The first thing to remember is that heat should be used for at least 20 minutes at a time. However, this is not the case in areas that have had radiation. How heat works is that is increases blood to the body and then it also send oxygen and nutrients to the places that are in pain. Heat works to relax muscles that are stiff and keep pain away from muscles and joints.

Heat therapy should not be used if you have any type of broken skin. Also, make sure the heat pack is not scalding and make sure to wrap it up in a towel to keep you from being burned.

Cold packs work a little opposite to heat packs. Cold packs bring relief to parts of the body that are in pain just like heat packs, however, cold packs should be applied for less than 20 minutes. This will also help spasms in the muscles and is extremely helpful with shoulder and upper body injuries. Cold packs can also be used to ease back aches and headaches. If you have a sprain or bruise to your ankle or your wrist or any other part of your body, ice therapy may be an option for you there. If the ice pack seems to cold, let it sit for a minute or wrap it in a towel to make the temperature comfortable.

All Kinds of Ankle Braces

Lace Up Ankle Brace Support
Anyone who has ever suffered a sprained ankle knows the pain involved with this injury. They also know how painful it is to walk on the ankle until it has healed completely. When someone suffers a bad sprain they can use a good ankle brace to help protect, support and brace the ankle. This will give them the added support and stability needed to walk on the ankle while it is healing yet keeping motion of muscles, tendons and ligaments limited.

A good brace will completely surround the ankle and will fit tight. The tight fit compresses the ankle and helps keep it in place, limiting movement. This helps the muscles work better while supporting the ankle. A brace with strings or Velcro to help keep it in place and tighten it is the best kind to get for compression and support. Braces without a way to tighten them are not as effective. The ones that do have a way to tighten them will also need to be adjusted and tightened periodically. A person is better able to keep the brace in place so it is not sliding around but stays where it needs to be for the support when there is a way to tighten it.

There are different types of ankle supports that can be effective when someone is suffering from a sprain. Some of these slip on like a sock and are neoprene. These do not provide as much support as a brace that has metal or plastic stays. Neoprene ankle suppotts can be used for minor sprains though and can sometimes make the ankle feel better by providing support and protection from injury during sports and exercise by keeping the ankle stable. A neoprene ankle brace retains heat for a therapeutic effect that keeps the ankle ligaments warm and limber.

There are other braces made so they fit almost like a sock but have compressive properties. A compression ankle support maintains full range of motion while providing uniform compression around the ligaments and tendons. The FLA ProLite Compression Ankle Support features anatomically contoured viscoelastic inserts cover the entire soft tissue area of the joint and support the sides of the ankle. As the ankle is moved, the two L-Shaped Viscoelastic Inserts provide a gentle, compressive massage around the joint. This enhances circulation to help promote healing and minimize pain and swelling.

There are all kinds of ankle braces available to help when someone suffers a sprain of any kind. When an injury happens the extra stability and compression these ankle supports offer can help someone get back on their feet with less pain.
