Treatment Options for Migraines and Headaches
I.C.E. DOWN Migraine Ice Wraps
Conventional medicine offers a variety of drugs for migraines and other headaches, but little in the way of consistently effective treatments. People who regularly suffer with headaches or who have chronic headache pain ultimately turn to alternative treatments for relief. Cold therapy is a simple treatment you can use at home as a stand-alone therapy or to compliment other treatments. I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps make cold therapy easy and convenient.
Cold therapy is a simple and effective self-care treatment you can use to reduce or relieve your headache pain at home. It works by reducing inflammation, narrowing the blood vessels, and reducing the pain by numbing the area and reducing the pain signals sent to the brain.
Cold therapy treats headaches by accomplishing many of the same things that medications do, such as narrowing the blood vessels, but without the side effects of medications, or the long-term expense.
I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps for headaches are designed to fit comfortably, and will not leak. They are easy to use and can be safely used in combination with other treatments.
