The Polar Ice Shoulder/Hip Ice Wrap 30100 is the perfect way to get relief from shoulder injuries and hip problems.
Although anyone can suffer from a shoulder or hip injury, athletes and skilled workers are more prone to injury due to repetitive and intensive routines. Whether it’s to assist in recovering from an injury/pain or helping to prevent the same, the Polar Ice Shoulder/Hip Wrap will do the job.
Cold therapy is highly recommended for a variety of joint and muscle problems. The sooner cold therapy is applied after an injury, the quicker inflammation and pain dissipate. It is recommended for new injuries, re-injury and post-operatively. Ice therapy, together with rest, are often recommended to help prevent longer lasting chronic injury. It helps alleviate pain from many acute injuries, it reduces swelling and inflammation, which in turn, helps to minimise pain associated with injury, arthritis, excess activity and general wear and tear.
The Polar Ice compression pack helps reduce inflammation and swelling by constricting our blood vessels. The ‘compression’ part of the wrap keeps the joint stabilised, thus helping to prevent further injury, while the ‘cold’ part is practicing vasoconstriction. Cold therapy is also known as cryotherapy, which not only reduces the blood flow to the shoulder area, it also temporarily reduces nerve activity. Both result in not only pain relief but the added bonus of reduction in inflammation and swelling which aids the healing process. This combination of compression and cold therapy leads to quick relief and assistance with recovery.
Features and Benefits of the Polar Ice Shoulder & Hip Ice Wrap 30100
Polar Ice combines cryotherapy with compression to help prevent and/or repair soft tissue injury. The combination of restricting movement plus cold therapy enables the shoulder to repair and return to full mobility. This product gives you hands-free long lasting, wearable cold therapy, which is very easy to use and comfortable to wear.
The Polar Ice Shoulder/Hip Wrap is divided into sections, each of which has a pocket for a slim-line cold pack. Its soft, fleece outer cover ensures that the compression pack stays in place. It also has wicking properties to keep moisture away from your skin. The underside of the shoulder/hip wrap has added foam which also protects against frost bite and makes extra comfortable to wear.
The encapsulated ice packs are made up of tiny cells which are filled with purified water. The ice packs are designed in this way, so they happily mould to the shape of your shoulder and upper arm. They are easy to take with you in a cooler bag. The ‘waffle’ designed ice pack allows for quicker freezing time. The manufacturers say it the ice packs will freeze within 30-45 minutes and will remain cold/cool for up to 30 minutes.
