Winter brings exciting holiday cheer, crisp mornings, endless gratitude, plus a suite of seasonal celebrations that bring people together. Whether spending lots of time cuddling under a blanket, sipping on some hot chocolate and peppermint-spiced lattes, or engaging in fun winter sports, there is so much to look forward to.
For many, though, winter can mean more body stiffness and soreness. People with chronic conditions like arthritis and other chronic pain conditions are more vulnerable to experiencing discomfort. Hot or cold therapy is proven and effective for treating many common minor ailments that could occur during winter.
Make it easy for your clients and customers to shop for their loved ones and avoid unnecessary discomfort or pain with a range of reusable hot and cold packs and soothing gel products this winter. If experiencing persistent swelling, redness, or difficulty putting pressure on, we recommend that people seek medical attention to help improve those effects.
Warm Up After A Chilly Day Outside
With the chilly, dull, and rainy winter weather, it’s natural for the muscles to feel more tensed up and tight. But there are ways to get you outside and moving in the chilliest of temperatures; without worrying about stiff and painful joints. Rapid Aid offers a diverse range of cozy products designed to make this season even sweeter– while relaxing and soothing achy muscles and frozen feet.
If looking for a natural way to soothe aching joints and increase mobility, heat therapies such as hot and cold reusable gel compress and wraps are designed to deliver long-lasting, safe, soothing pain management. Filled with our deluxe Contour-Gel, it molds easily to the body for added comfort and a closer treatment. Deep penetrating heat stimulates blood flow which helps relax and soothe muscles for instant pain relief.
Cold Therapy Packs for Winter Injuries
With all the unpredictable weather and biting cold, unexpected winter injuries should be seriously considered and prepared for. Common winter injuries such as slips and falls on ice or snow, muscle strain from scraping windshields or shoveling sidewalks, and sports accidents from ice hockey, skating, and tobogganing can happen in an instant. All these injuries can be surprisingly serious if not managed well.
If inflammation results from injury, cold therapy can reduce swelling or alleviate common aches and pains. Our instant cold packs for on-the-spot relief, economical and reusable cold gel compresses and wraps, and clay compresses are incredible for easing swelling or calming inflammation due to overuse, sports injury, or trauma. Furthermore, combining cold and heat can relieve a freshly injured muscle, such as a sprain. Stocking up or carrying the instant hot/cold pack on the go is a great idea for your customers.
