The use of an ice wrap/pack for an acute injury or after surgery can help reduce the inflammation and speed up the recovery process. It can also help reduce pain and swelling. Once the acute phase of an injury has occurred switching to a heat wrap can help improve blood flow and increase the material required for healing to site of injury. This can help speed up the healing process.
