Bumps, bruises, bad knees, bad back, cold feet and hands…No one likes to be in discomfort, including us, so we intend on doing something about that! Being your one-stop shop for your first aid supplies, we offer a plethora of unitized ice packs/compresses, reusable cold/heat packs that can be used as instant treatment and relief for the aches and pains of joints, muscles and ligaments. These are individually wrapped for convenience and also so it doesn't get contaminated. Never run out with our color coded united refill kits!
Heat and cold are the two most common types of nonaddictive pain-relief therapies for muscle and joint pain. Which one you use depends on whether the pain is new or recurring. 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 recurrence can be treated with heat, which will bring blood to the area and promote healing.
