  • Reduces bruises: if you use this cold gel pack you will make the bruise from a contusion does not expand and disappear in less time, since the blood risk will be cut so that no more bruises are made to lengthen the recovery.

When to use?

Cold therapy

Unlike heat therapies, cold should be used from the moment the injury occurs, so you can avoid complications due to the progression of symptoms such as swelling, pain and bruising in the affected areas. But the person should know in what type of injuries can apply cold on their own, it is only recommended in soft tissue ailments such as muscles, tendons and ligaments, in this case those of the elbow, forearm and hand. Under no circumstances should the cold gel pack be placed on third degree sprains and fractures, especially when it is open and goes through the skin. Nor when there are open wounds such as knife cuts.
  • How to use cold? This bag has a special fabric that will protect the skin from burns, but you should always be careful not to use it directly from the freezer to the surface of the arm, allow the cold to descend a little for two or three minutes. An excellent way to apply cold is to apply pressure with the gel pack for 10 minutes, never exceed 15-20 minutes to avoid numbness of the arm. Once this time is over, remove the bag and allow a rest, then you can return to place the cold on the affected area as long as you notice that the pain and inflammation goes down. This cycle can be repeated two or three times a day.

Heat generates mainly a sedative effect and an increase in circulation, making it an excellent ally to recover from injuries to muscles, ligaments and tendons of the arm and elbow. Once an injury has been suffered, heat can be used the following days to stimulate recovery and relieve pain from tendinitis, bursitis, strains and muscle contractures. It is also useful for relieving headaches, fever and toothaches as its shape can be used on parts of the body other than the arms or elbows.

After heating the heat pack, you should move the gel with your hands to better distribute the heat. Try not to use the heat pack for more than 20 minutes on the body.

Contrast therapy

This combination of therapies should always be suggested by a physician and applied by a physiotherapist. Once you have a diagnosis and they have outlined for you a way to use these therapies, then you can use the heat pack at home to continue with this same treatment in case of relapses or the presence of new muscle and joint discomfort.
