Shoulder Ice Pack

Every sportsman knows that the way to heal injured muscles is with RICE. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. When the muscles receive these treatments, they heal faster and without much fuss. One of the ways to help promote faster healing is to refrain from activity, apply a shoulder ice pack over the site of injury, compress the area and keep the limb or affected area in an elevated state for as much of the time as possible.

The most important thing, for sportsmen, is to keep disability time down to the bare minimum because they will need to get back into the swing of things as quickly as possible. A shoulder ice pack can help bring down swelling, and relax the injured, stressed, sprained or strained arm or shoulder quickly, efficiently and conveniently. Most coachers and personal trainers keep a shoulder ice pack ready for use and carry them around for training – just in case their sportsmen needs them.

When using the cooler wraps, there’s no need to keep out of activity or remain immobile all the time. They can wrap and secure it around the site of injury very easily, and it won’t slip. However, it is important that the patient does not overstress or overuse that muscles that have been injured. Not only will that aggravate the injured muscle(s), ligament(s) or tendon(s), it might cause injury to other areas of the body as well because the heightened demand on other muscles puts stress on them.

With the advancement of technology, there’s no need to struggle with conventional ice, elastic bandages and there’s no immobility involved. A sport tool like this is easy-to-use, and with its open-and-apply method of application, anyone can learn how to use it and apply it to their injury site within minutes! In fact, some of the more advanced types of shoulder cold bags (like this one from ProSeries) come with their own carrying case, insulation bags and battery packs. This is so that the cold bags can be used just about anytime, anywhere! This is a worthwhile investment for an athlete because they can keep on the move and be prepared for any injury knowing that they have something like this handy whenever they need it. These cold bags will last you a long time and does not need to be maintained. Proper cleaning and safekeeping of the product is all that is needed to ensure optimal functioning of the cold bags for as long as possible.

Sportsmen like tennis players, baseball players, squash players and other sportsmen who use their hands and swing their arms aggressively during the game risks injuring their shoulder muscles in one way or the other, if they do not take care of their body. Baseball players often use these cooler bags to help heal the ‘dead arm’ syndrome – a term commonly used in the baseball sports circuit. When application of cooler bags is applied to the injured muscle, there is an instant pain relief and the muscle relaxes. It is advisable to keep the shoulder ice pack in position for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the shoulder ice pack and do this every 3 or 4 hours for 4 days continuously or until the pain subsides.

"I know I’ve found a new key to my post-ride recovery. After each ride, I take a recovery drink with me into the shower, clean off and then put the ice wraps on while I cook and eat."-- Phil Gaimon, 24, rides for Kenda Pro Cycling
