Being your one-stop shop for your first aid supplies, we offer a plethora of ice packs/compresses, reusable cold/heat pack, even kid-themed ice packs that can be used as instant treatment and relief for the aches and pains of joints muscles and ligaments. For the folks who do not like the cold or to use as an emergency precaution, we also offer body warmers for your feet, hands and other parts of your body to warm you up when you are exposed to the below freezing elements.
Heat and cold are the two most common types of non-addictive pain relief therapies for muscle and joint pain. Which one you use depends on whether the pain is new or recurring. In general, usually a new injury will cause inflammation and possible swelling. Ice will decrease the blood flow to the injury, thereby decreasing inflammation and swelling. Pain that is a reoccurrence can be treated with heat, which will bring blood to the area and promote healing.
