Helps reduce swelling and promote healing. Adjustable for graduated compression. Neoprene wrap with hook and loop closure. If swelling is present immediately after a minor injury has occurred, apply cold therapy. Cold therapy aids in slowing circulation and metabolism to the injured area. The swelling that typically occurs is a result of the pooling of blood around the injury due to the trauma delivered to the cells and tissues. By applying cold therapy as soon as possible, you reduce the blood flow and swelling. This will mean less muscle spasm and less pain. Contains: 1 - 30 inch x 5 inch wrap; 1 - 9 inch ice bag.
