Ice Wraps - A Drug Free and Side Effect Free Solution to Pain

Today we have many drugs to choose from in treating pain and inflammation, both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC). But every drug has potential side effects, some immediate and others which develop over time. Many people, especially those with autoimmune and other conditions, simply cannot tolerate the drugs which are available. Ice can give you the same benefits without the side effects.

Reasons to Avoid Medications

Medications can offer temporary and effective relief from pain and inflammation in some people, but there are always risks and for many people these drugs are not an acceptable option. Examples of unwanted effects can include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Gastrointestinal pain
  • Ulcers
  • Liver damage
  • Drowsiness
  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dependency
  • Increasing tolerance requiring larger and more frequent doses or stronger drugs
  • Stigma

The Importance of Treating Pain and Inflammation

Those who cannot tolerate pain killing and anti-inflammatory drugs, or who choose not to take them due to debilitating side effects often wind up living with the pain and inflammation with no relief. What many do not realize is the devastating toll that this too can take on their health.

Chronic pain can lead to serious health problems including depression, obesity, and poor immune function. Unresolved pain sets you up for more pain by discouraging the physical activity necessary to correct the problem causing the pain and prevent future injuries.

Chronic inflammation is even more dangerous. It is the underlying cause of most or all deadly health problems including cancer, heart attack, and Alzheimer's disease. On the local level, inflammation makes injuries worse and deteriorates your joints.

When used properly, cold therapy is just as effective as anti-inflammatory medications. I.C.E. Down ice wraps are designed to stay cold enough long enough to deliver effective cold therapy. Ice does not have the dangerous or debilitating side effects that come with taking medications.
