There are a bunch of essentials to consider when preparing a baseball team for their big upcoming game day. The list can range from sunscreen to snacks and drinks, but in a sport that is unrestricted to time, athletes can sustain multiple injuries that will call for a readily available solution such as Rapid Aid Instant Cold Packs, which can provide pain relief to those injuries so the ball game can make it to a long-awaited seventh-inning stretch.
Here are a few reasons why you should include instant cold packs in your seasonal offering to your customers:
On The Spot Cold Treatment
Research shows that common injuries for pitchers and hitters are oblique strains and tendonitis, which can occur in the elbow, wrist, finger, thigh, or elsewhere on the body due to repetitive use, causing increased tissue stress and inflammation of a tendon.
Thus, when baseball players are hitting or pitching the ball using constant high rotational power in their torso, wrist, or elbow, they can benefit from on-the-spot cold treatment or cryotherapy. Applying cold therapy to targeted body parts can help with muscle pain relief and promote faster healing during an injury’s acute phase, decreasing the chances of additional damage.
The Principles of PRICE
PRICE principles are the five components necessary to encourage a healthy healing process for our athletes this season.
- P- Protect
- R- Rest
- I- Ice
- C- Compression
- E- Elevation
While cold therapy is not suited for everyone, such as those with cold hypersensitivity problems or heart conditions, it works to relieve symptoms of acute sports injuries for most athletes effectively.
If performed correctly as soon as the injury occurs, these principles can prevent injuries from worsening and promote a faster recovery after being continued for 24-72 hours.
