Icing, also known as cryotherapy, needs to be done with a specifically engineered cold wrap, to conform to the affected areas, and provide full contact with proper compression and stability, while maintaining consistent temperature levels. The cold wrap should have a wide mouth, to accommodate the ice. Popular icing methods often fail these tests. Cryotherapy types, like chemical ice packs, cold wraps, and bags of frozen peas, don’t provide compression, and warm up too quickly, therefore providing suboptimal cooling, which makes icing inefficient. Frozen cold packs or ice cups, also warm up too quickly, tend to leak and drip, and don’t provide proper compression. Ice packs that need electrical power, are inconvenient for travel. The best form of cryotherapy is, and always will be the use of real ice.
