The active wrap hip heat and ice wrap is an elite quality thermal compression wrap provided complete with 1 extra large heat and ice pack. The active wrap provides targeted cold and heat therapy providing pain relief and is designed for ease of use with the comfortable and easy to apply compression wrap allowing the user to remain mobile during use.
Who should use this?
The wrap is for individuals who are suffering from hip or lateral buttock pain and who require a professional standard Heat or Ice pack.It allows thermal treatment to be applied via a pack with a high standard of temperature retaining properties.
The active wrap hip wrap is commonly used following hip surgery, for conditions such as trochanteric bursitis and following muscle and soft tissue injuries, in cases of gluteal tendinopathy at the greater trochanter and for arthritis in the hip joint. The compressive hip support that contains the removable ice packs also provides circumferential support allowing more comfortable function.
How does it work?
Many conditions causing hip pain and associated spasm benefit from the use of cold therapy in the acute phase immediately after injury or heat therapy in the sub acute phase or chronic phase.
Following soft tissue injury cold or cryotherapy can be used to vaso-constrict local blood vessels. Short periods of cold applied immediately after injury restrict local blood supply and this limits bleeding and thus subsequent swelling or oedema. Cooling also reduces the metabolic demand of surrounding tissues so they become less likely to suffer injury due to interruption of their normal blood supply during the injury.
Heat is used to promote blood flow to an injured area in the sub acute or chronic injury and to induce relaxation of local muscles that may be in spasm. Blood brings in the oxygen and nutrients required for healing and repair.
