Features for ice gel pack for neck and shoulder pain




What are the uses and benefits of the cold gel pack for neck and shoulder?

What is it for?

  • Muscle fatigue: in clinical terms, the fatigue of muscle fibers is the difficulty they have to contract and re-stretch the muscle due to an overload of work for several hours a day. The muscles remain tense and their mobility becomes almost impossible, that is why the cold packs we want you to know about serve as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, allowing the fibers to relax and recover from the physical demands. It is a key tool for every professional athlete.
  • Whiplash: its medical name is cervical hyperextension and consists of the neck injury by rapid and explosive movements, typical of a traffic accident and the tackle of a rugby player. It is like a mild neck sprain, where the ligaments are stretched too much and cause tension that requires immobilization. The gel pack serves to relieve the intense and localized pain, and also controls the inflammation left by this whiplash on the sides of the cervical.
  • Herniated disc: this is the displacement or deformation, in the worst cases, of the intervertebral discs that are located between each vertebra of the spine. Both the lower back and the cervical spine are susceptible to this injury as a result of the wear and tear of the discs that run along the base of the skull and reach the hip. When the disc generates inflammation, the cold pack will provide relief and control that there is no further expansion of excess fluid in the skin.
  • Torticollis: this is the contracture of the muscle tissues located on one side of the neck, it is known that there are several reasons why this contracture is generated, but most can be avoided by placing cold on the affected side when you have spent a busy day at the office, sitting for long hours at a computer or as a result of a sudden movement when playing sports. The gel pack will relieve this symptom in the first instant only if the contracture is mild. Otherwise, heat should be applied to relax the fibers.
  • Bruising: is the rupture of blood vessels located under the first layer of the skin, this bleeding causes localized pain and swelling. The cold, applied with the gel pack, will allow the pain to subside and the inflammation will not expand. The regeneration of the vessels may take several weeks, while this occurs, the bruises on the skin will disappear after a few days. The cold should be applied with care because the skin is already sensitive due to internal bleeding.
  • Dislocations: when the humerus bone comes out of the joint, this generates intense pain, deformity of the shoulder, stiffness and inflammation. These are symptoms that can be perfectly controlled with the cold gel pack, due to its analgesic properties and because it makes the pain receptors in the organism perceive less the discomfort caused by this injury. As the bag does not have a strap for a better grip, it is recommended to use the hand to put pressure on the shoulder.
  • Tendonitis: if you like sports, then you should already know that tendonitis is a risk factor in any discipline, so it is an excellent idea to have a cold gel bag like this model, which will help control the severe symptoms of tendon irritation in the shoulder and neck. The worst that can happen is a tendon tear, but the cold will also help reduce the pain and prevent the inflammation from spreading to the cervical or shoulder.
  • Rotator cuff tear: this is an injury in the muscle group that offers the greatest mobility to the shoulder, there are four muscles that break their fibers in the excesses of physical activity, either at home, at work or in the sports area. The muscle that suffers the most is the supraspinatus, so much of the cold therapy should focus on this particular muscle. The cold gel pack should be placed in the hands to have a soothing effect on the pain and inflammation while drugs are administered, you can also use a bandage to hold the bag to the shoulder.
  • Bursitis: Bursae are sacs filled with synovial fluid that become inflamed when additional stress is placed on the shoulder due to sudden movements, heavy lifting or receiving a sharp, direct blow. These bursae serve as a cushion to prevent rubbing of the structures that make up the complex shoulder joint during movement. The bursa allows for pain relief and reduces the likelihood of swelling being a short-term problem, further limiting arm mobility.
  • Muscle tears: Muscle tears are breaks in the small fibers that make up muscles throughout the body, including those in the shoulder and neck. When there is a partial or total tear, it is important to immediately apply the cold gel pack because the pain will be localized and unbearable for the person. In addition, the cold will make it so that there are no complications in the affected muscle due to the positive effects that the reduction of blood has for this type of injury. When a tear is total, surgery will be necessary to repair the damage.

What are the benefits?

  • Pain relief: Cold on the body has an effect similar to that of muscle relaxants, relieving mild to moderate pain when it comes to injuries to muscles, ligaments and tendons. Almost all cervical and shoulder injuries can be addressed from the instant of the incident with this cold gel pack. You just need to be mindful of the time of use on the skin so that there are no complications due to first-degree burns.
  • Reduce inflammation: Inflammation is part of the body’s natural process to begin recovery from tissue damage. The cells generate a fluid that allows swelling in the shoulder and cervical, where the injury persists. The cold will help prevent excess fluid in the affected area and help make this process less painful. The gel pack helps the inflammatory process to pass quickly and without major complications for the tissues.
  • Accelerates recovery: when cold is combined with heat, through contrast therapies, it is possible and very effective in the treatment of chronic injuries in which the cells are stimulated, and in circulatory difficulties in which the vessels, veins and arteries are trained so that there is a greater blood flow in the body. This type of combined therapies must be supervised by a physiotherapist, but in the case of cold, you can use the gel pack we have for you.
  • Injury prevention: after overwork or intense training, placing the cold pack on the shoulder will prevent injuries due to muscle wasting and joint fatigue. But keep in mind that it is not a measure to always apply, you should only do it if you know that there will be recurrence of injuries in the shoulder and cervical, perhaps because of weakening in these areas or because there was a change in the pace of work.
  • Improves sports performance: this bag is great for professional athletes, it is a practical, portable and easy to use tool for when there are aches and pains in the shoulder or neck. Remember that when you avoid injuries, you will be able to be active longer in competitions, so you can advance in your career. That’s why we want you to know about this product that will help you in your growth as a professional.
  • Reduction of migraines and headaches: any discomfort in the cervical will cause you to have constant headaches. In addition, migraine headaches can be the result of an injury that has not fully healed, such as herniated discs, which compromise the integrity of the nerves. For both the head and neck, the gel pack will do its job by reducing the symptoms that lead the body to react with pain in the head. You should always be aware of the time of use of this product, to avoid the freezing effect on the soft tissues.
  • Muscle contractures: this is a fairly recurrent ailment that will make you spend annoying moments because you will have to rest for several days before the contracture disappears. As at the beginning of this injury there is pain, the bag will soothe this symptom and prevent you from having to be off work for several days. If the contracture persists, then using heat will have a better relieving effect on the affected muscle.
  • Circulatory regulator: the key to the benefits of cold lies in its ability to constrict the blood vessels to eliminate most of the annoying symptoms that accompany an injury. In addition, when combined with heat, cold also has a positive effect on chronic diseases such as varicose veins and ulcers, where there is a difficulty in the blood supply that generates pain and swelling of the legs.
