Ice Packs Treatments
Ice-pack treatment are very useful in treating injured joints and muscle, especially during the acute stage. Wrap a light towel around the part to be treated. Next, pack small pieces of ice over the area, and cover this with some light plastic waterproof material.
Add another towel and leave the whole pack in place twenty or thirty minutes. Be sure the bed is protected by a plastic or rubber sheet. Repeat the treatment every three or four hours, as may be needed. This treatment is valuable for cases of acute bursitis and sprains of the wrist, ankle, or other joints.
