Why Cold Therapy? Cold therapy is proven to be safe and effective at reducing swelling, relieving pain and decreasing muscle spasms, cold therapy is an easy self-care technique that anyone can administer. Cold therapy should always be used as soon as possible after an injury occurs and continued for the following 48 hours at 15 to 20 minute intervals or as advised by a medical professional.
Instant cold packs
These are single use packs which contain two chemicals. The second chemical is within a separate pouch inside the pack. When the pack is required, the inner pouch is burst (using the thumbs), releasing the second chemical and causing an endothermic reaction which lowers the temperature of the pack.
Reusable gel packs
These are cold therapy packs which contain a form of gel and are kept in the freezer until required. They are reusable and in many cases can also be heated either in very hot water or a microwave to offer warm therapy instead.
