When recovering from an injury or maintaining an active lifestyle, cold packs help relieve pain and soothe muscles for quicker recovery and to help prevent further damage. An ice pack or two in the freezer at home or at the office can be enough to handle day-to-day needs. Look through our entire selection of first aid safety, including eye wash, to find other items for handling first aid emergencies.
Some cold packs are designed for a single use and grant instant cold right when it's needed. A cold pack like this works great in emergencies and allows for applying cold to an injury as soon as possible. Keep these in emergency preparedness packs and first aid kits for quick retrieval and use.
Many cold packs can be placed in a freezer and cooled down for use again and again. These packs are great for home and office use as well as at the gym. They take up little space and are easy to find when they're needed. Their durable casing means they can be used for years to come.
Hot packs also exist for controlled temperature therapy and relaxing muscles suffering from aches or strains. Some cold packs can even be placed in a microwave to double as a warm or hot pack.
For physical therapy and jobs where you will need to continue to use an injured or stressed muscle, therapy wraps provide a secure way to bind a cold or hot pack to the damaged or aching area and maintain the temperature over a period of time.
