Your elbows and knees are extremely vulnerable to injury, particularly if you enjoy playing sports. Whether you have an ongoing complaint or just the occasional sprain, at-home treatments like cold therapy and compression therapy are an effective and gentle way to ease pain and inflammation, helping you to recover more quickly. Cold therapy (also known as cryotherapy) involves applying cold temperatures to inflamed tissue; this is extremely effective at limiting the amount of damage. The coolness reduces pain and muscle spasms as it gently numbs the area and provides relief. It decreases any internal bleeding by shutting your blood vessels down, and lowers the metabolism of your cells so that there is much less chance for them to die off and cause lasting damage.
After injury your joints swell up, causing discomfort and slowing the healing process. Compression elbow and knee therapy prevents this by restricting the amount of fluid and inflammation that can happen. This also maximises the amount of oxygen and nutrients that can reach the injured tissue, leading to faster recovery. These two therapies are vital parts of the standard treatment for injuries, known as RICE –Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.
Sissel’s all-in-one knee and elbow support provides cold therapy and compression, as well as being a great overall brace. To use, place the cold pack in your fridge or freezer depending on the level of coolness you require. Once your desired temperature has been reached, place the pack into the case and wrap it firmly around your affected joint with the adjustable Velcro straps. It’s really simple to use the compression therapy feature of this wrap – just squeeze the bulb of the detachable pump to gradually increase the level of pressure until you feel well supported. The Slow Flow Gel technology of the cool pack ensures that it has maximum temperature preservation for long lasting relief. As the cold pack and pump are removable, you can choose to use just compression therapy or to deflate the compression compartment and use the wrap as a splint to stabilise your joint; Sissel’s fantastic design will take you through all the stages of healing.
