According to Cool Relief’s latest guide, the knees are the second most common area in the body for chronic pain. This is largely due to the constant stress put on them. While many different types of injuries can affect the knee, treatments for the basic symptoms are generally the same.
Most doctors will recommend rest, icing, compression, and elevation, or RICE, as it’s more commonly known. This is because when knee injuries occur, the area around the joint swells, causing pain and stiffness. RICE decreases blood flow to the knee, which in turn, reduces the inflammation that causes this swelling. Ice wraps, like those from Cool Relief, play an important role in this process, as they provide both icing and compression benefits.
Regarding ice wraps, Cool Relief offers a few choices. Their basic Knee Soft Gel Ice Pack, which comes in a standard and large size, targets the entire knee with long-lasting cold therapy. It’s made with a comfortable compression cover, which is lightweight and flexible yet firm and secure.
For a more robust option, they also carry the Athletic Knee Ice Pack Wrap. This ice wrap extends above and below the knee and provides segmented medial and lateral coverage. For athletes, the medial and lateral areas are particularly prone to injuries, so this wrap offers the cooling and compressions those areas need.
“When an injury has you down the effects of cold therapy cannot be understated,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Proper treatment of injuries will get you back to doing what you love, whether it’s running, biking, competitive sports, or even walking your dog.”
