Do you experience frequent back pain? Has it limited your daily life and what you are able to do? Are you hesitant to pursue an involved treatment, or are you unsure if your condition warrants a procedure? Many of us experience natural aches and pains as a part of life, but it can be difficult when these conditions become constant or debilitating. However, did you know ice may be a simple but powerful tool for you? Cold therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses ice to relieve pressure and minimize swelling.

Cold therapy is a popular treatment option to release tension and provide relief from pain. The ice reduces swelling and alleviates pressure off the designated nerves.
Cold therapy is a relatively simple and straightforward process. Ice is applied to a specific area via a variety of modalities. Popular options include:
Each of these utilize cold or ice to help relieve swelling and pressure in targeted areas. There is minimal discomfort associated with the process, but you will naturally experience chills as the compress works with your body to reduce pain.
Cold therapy treatments may be recommended for the comfort of your home.
Cold therapy is most often recommended for those living with neck pain or lower back pain. In such cases, if there is shoulder pain or hip pain associated with the neck or back pain respectively, it’s recommended to apply cold therapy to the shoulder or hip. However, cold therapy may be recommended to those experiencing pain anywhere on the back or neck. It is important to keep in mind this may not treat an injury, but it is helpful to manage swelling and reduce pressure on the nerves.
