Each year it seems that we can’t wait for it to get here. In fact, most of us are probably wishing it would get here right after the 2nd or 3rd week of January. What am I talking about, well Summer of course. But “Summertime” is also the prime-time for sports injuries, lets take a look at some of the most common ones and see just what we can offer for some relief in order to let you get back out there and enjoy the summer sun!
Ankle sprains: These are always a big one, in fact it ranks among the top three most common summertime injuries. It can happen anywhere, sand volleyball matches, baseball games, even family picnics. One thing you can keep in mind so that you can have "peace of mind" to tell the difference from a bad sprain to possibly a fracture is the "Ottawa Rule" If your ankle can bear weight for three steps, then there are probably no gross deformities. If the pain is severe and begins to swell or blacken see a doctor. If its just a case of a bad sprain, then ice it. But instead of just plain old ice, try our Physicool compression bandages , they draw heat away from the inflammation and offer up to 2 and a half hours of cold therapy without needing to be frozen or refrigerated. Unlike plain ice that you need to put in a waterproof bag, (if you have one available), you won't have to deal with a wet mess that after a while will drip and get you wet. Not to mention that you need to move that ice bag around every 15-20 minutes so that you don't incur freezing the portion of your skin that its resting on. This you will NOT have to do when using the Physicool Bandages. Why? Because the bandages are treated with the Physicool product that unlike using ice which applys just wet cold to the injured area. The Physicool bandages draws heat away from inflammation without needing to be frozen or refrigerated.
Each bandage has a Velcro strap that holds it in place without creating a pressure point. Initially charged with 2-3 hours cooling the bandages are reusable and Physicool’s unique cooling effects will still be felt long after removal. And the bandages are reusable and machine washable. As long as you have the Physicool coolant than you are good to go for many repeat uses.
Each size bandage comes in it’s own sealed, easy to open pack that you can easily carry with you in your backpack or gym bag, and just bring it out when the need arises. Get the relief from the pain of your ankle sprain, by using the Physicool Bandage application.
