Chattanooga Group Boo-Boo Pac for Relief of Pain and Swelling
When injuries occur, swelling sometimes follows. One of the best ways to both prevent and stop swelling is by the application of cold to the site of the injury. However, children are especially panicked when injured, and something different than traditional methods should be used to calm their nerves. Using boo-boo pacs, cold pacs with a print of a soccer ball or basketball, can distract the child long enough for the treatment to be effective. The use of cold material causes the blood vessels to constrict, allowing less blood to escape, and thus lessening the effect of swelling. Instead of using plastic bags full of ice water, consider the benefits of a high quality cold pack. The cold packs don't leak, they don't sweat, and they are usable over and over.
