Hot and cold therapy is a widely known therapeutic technique used to control pain and inflammation after an injury (cold) and relax and loosen tense muscles where chronic pain is an issue (heat).
Made with a nylon casing that is leak-proof, moisture-wicking, and breathable to maintain your comfort during use. It is recommended to limit hot/cold therapy to 15-20 minutes at a time.
Hot & Cold Therapy
When to use ice therapy:
- Joint and muscle sprains/strains
- Red, hot or swollen areas
- Sudden injuries where swelling is occurring
- Acute pain after intense exercise
When to use heat therapy:
- Muscle pain or soreness
- Stiff joints
- Recurring injuries
Cold therapy effectively reduces swelling and relieves pain as it constricts the blood vessels, decreasing circulation to the affected area. Icing immediately after an injury can help with immediate and long-term swelling and potentially speed up recovery time! It is not recommended to ice muscles before strenuous exercise.
Heat therapy stimulates circulation and dilates the blood vessels, promoting blood flow to reduce pain. Heat therapy is best used for chronic pain or to relax a muscle spasm.
Wide Coverage & Mobility
The BODYPROX ice pack is crafted with two elasticized bands with Velcro closure that will fit many larger body areas like the leg, back, shoulder or arm. Strap it to the affected area and go about your day!
Easily heated or cooled with gel that stays soft to mold to your body for the most effective relief. The BODYPROX Large Ice Pack uses a premium gel that stays hot or cold longer than traditional ice packs.
Ice packs are used proactively as well. Icing after strenuous exercise or after a long day of work can soothe the muscle and prevent long-term swelling and pain. Heating is beneficial in situations where chronic pain occurs! Heating a bad back or knee can help control inflammation.
