When injuries occur, swelling sometimes follows. One of the best ways to both prevent swelling from happening and stop swelling already occuring is by the application of cold to the site of the injury. 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. Also, they apply an even level of cold without the uncomfortableness that comes from ice cubes. Cold pacs are both more comfortable and more effective at swelling prevention and treatment than traditional methods.
