Sports-persons, seniors, middle aged people and even kids can develop knee injuries, conditions that require treatment. Ice or cold therapy comes to rescue when the pain affecting the foot and knee does not go away easily.
Knee ice wraps are known to decrease the joint pains and are known to give relief even for chronic pains like arthritis. Tingling pain, numbness, inflammation and recurring pain cannot be ignored, most of the pain can be dealt with ice and thermal wraps at home but for acute pains a physician needs to be consulted.
Continuous stress to the body without giving it time to rest, stress, fractures and injuries can cause tremendous pressure on our joints. On the contrary, sitting for long hours without proper exercise to muscles and joints can also be the reason of joint pains. These pains need to be addressed using therapeutic procedures such as physiotherapy and acupressure. For severe cases, surgery might become the obvious choice.
Cold therapy is known to be excellent cure from ancient days. Man has known that ice is capable of reducing swelling for injuries and also stop excessive blood loss for an open wound. It has the property to constrain the blood vessels by contracting and thus checking the bleeding. The body also has a natural ability to clot the blood to prevent further bleeding. I would however suggest not to deal with an open wound without consulting a physician.
