Everyone learns, from a very young age, that nothing heals a pain, other than a kiss, better than ice therapy. Bruising of muscle or bone, straining, pulling or tearing of muscle, tearing of ligaments or simply bumping into something hard creates inflammation in the body, causing your natural healing reaction to send blood to the area which results in swelling and redness.
What did your mother always do when you came in with a bump or a scrape? She ran to the refrigerator and pulled out the frozen peas. For the first 3 seconds it felt good until quickly the cold was too overwhelming, the peas became too mushy and the whole thing became a sloppy and disgustingly wet and very uncomfortable mess!
Nature´s solution to bruising and swelling is to apply ice with compression and to elevate the injured part. The cold lowers the temperature of the injury constricts the blood vessels to reduce their flow and calms the nerves; all leading to a reduction in swelling, less bruising and less pain.
Everyone has an ice pack in their freezer for that unexpected injury. Some contain gel, others need to be whacked to become cold or are simply hard frozen water. The goal is to find a soft and malleable form that will cover lots of skin surface while it maintains a constant temperature of 40-42 degrees for at least an hour. Frozen peas, while they are very pliable, quickly become a wet and soggy mess. Most gel packs do not cover enough surface and ice cubes are simply too hard, too cold and too uncomfortable.
