Chronic Knee Pain
I.C.E. DOWN Knee Ice Wraps
Chronic knee pain can be debilitating. Compensating for the pain in the way you walk and move can lead to other physical problems such as hip and back problems. Chronic knee pain causes some to turn to total knee replacement surgery. Most people with chronic knee pain prefer a less radical solution, but have difficulty finding a consistently effective remedy, especially one that is side effect-free.
Cold therapy ice wraps can give you relief from chronic knee pain without the side effects of drugs, and can actually prevent further damage to your knee.
Consequences of Chronic Knee Pain
Chronic knee pain can mean more than just suffering with the localized physical pain. For many, it takes the joy out of physical activities and sports that keep them healthy and active.
Chronic knee pain can lead an otherwise active and motivated person to resign himself to a sedentary lifestyle, even when it is against his nature to do so. Over time the lack of physical activity can lead to weight gain and a decline in overall health. It can even lead to injuries and pain in other parts of the body.
For those who feel forced to give up the activities they love, this can lead to depression. When these physical activities are also social activities, it can lead to isolation and a change in the landscape of your life.
The Importance of Treating Chronic Knee Pain Today
It is easy to fall into the mindset that knee pain is just a fact of life that you will have to live with. However, chronic knee pain typically includes inflammation of the knee, which can cause progressive deterioration of the knee. Toughing it out may actually mean that you are doing more harm and are setting yourself up for even worse knee problems in the future.
Treating Chronic Knee Pain
There are many over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription drugs which can treat chronic knee pain, but all of these drugs can have side effects and damage other parts of your body, especially when used long-term.
Some pain killers also put you at risk for further injury by shutting down your natural alarm system that tells you when you are hurting yourself.
Cold therapy relieves chronic knee pain, without blocking out the pain signals that let you know when you are doing damage. Working on the heat-exchange principle, cold therapy draws the heat out of your knee, bringing down the inflammation without the side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
You can use cold therapy every day without having to worry about the long-term side effects of medications, and you can use it any time of day without worrying about the drowsiness or brain fog associated with most pain killers.
