Back Pain Relief from the Power of I.C.E. DOWN

Using ice packs and ice wraps to treat injuries is one of the oldest methods of back pain relief. Proven to be safe and effective at reducing swelling, relieving pain and decreasing muscle spasms, I.C.E. DOWN cold packs and ice wraps are an easy self-care technique that anyone can administer. I.C.E. DOWN is the most convenient and effective method to treat back pain available.

After an injury, blood vessels that deliver oxygen and nutrients to cells are damaged. The cells around the injury increase their metabolism in an effort to consume more oxygen. When all of the oxygen is used up, the cells die. Also, the damaged blood vessels cannot remove waste. Blood cells and fluid seep into spaces around the muscle, resulting in swelling and bruising.

When ice is applied, it lowers the temperature of the damaged tissue through heat exchange and constricts local blood vessels. This slows metabolism and the consumption of oxygen, therefore reducing the rate of cell damage and decreasing fluid build-up. Ice can also numb nerve endings. This stops the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain.
