We may not want to admit it, but we are all getting older, especially if your now considered a member of the “Baby Boomer” generation. Being between the age 50-65 is not a bad age group to be a member of. After all, our generation did a lot, not the least leading the way for the computer, cell phones and wasn’t it Al Gore that invented the internet, Right?
But being that age also means our muscles, legs, arms, basically our bodies may be just a little bit on the worn side. So, this time of year when the leaves have started to fall, which means the yard work has increased two-fold as the piles of leaves seem to be piling up like a snow bank. Speaking of snow, once those leaves begin to fall, that white stuff won’t be far behind. All this extra physical activity puts additional strain on our muscles and joints.
According to medical professionals, when the aches and pains start to get your attention, applying cold therapy, like ice-wraps to the sore areas can bring fast relief. The coldness reduces the blood flow around the injured or overworked area, which in turn can significantly reduce swelling and inflammation which can ease your discomfort.
Instead of relying on an old fashioned ice-pack, or a plastic bag filled with ice that will end up making a drippy, wet mess as the ice melts. A better, medically approved product that combines the function of an elastic bandage that has been treated with a solution that will, when applied to the sore area, draw out the heat and in turn, will cool that area down.
This bandage, the Physicool Compression Bandage, provides up to 2 and a half hours of cold therapy without the need to be re-frozen! This also means you have more mobility than you would if you were trying to use a standard ice-pack. Research has shown that when Physicool is applied to injuries, or sore, overused muscles the tissue temperature drops by as much as 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Because alcohol evaporates quicker than water, Physicool bandages are able to pull heat away from inflammation through rapid evaporation. Physicool bandages work for sprains, strains, tendinitis, and really any areas of your body when you feel a twinge that needs to be treated.
So, what are you waiting for, those leaves aren’t going put themselves into a bag or burn pile. Go out there and get that rake and get to it. Physicool will have your back, your shoulders, your upper and lower legs……..
