Quick and Convenient Cooling

Instant cold packs are a quick and convenient way to provide the benefits of cold therapy to treat an injury. Instant cold pack ingredients include water and urea that create an endothermic chemical reaction. This absorbs heat and reduces temperature rapidly. We also offer a larger ice pack variant to cater to bigger areas or more substantial injuries. Learn more about the science of how instant ice packs work on our blog.

How to Use Sterofreeze Instant Cold Packs

Step 1 - Squeeze the sachet

1. Find the water sachet inside the pack, squeeze as hard as you can to release the contents and allow it to combine

Step 2 Shake the pack

2. Shake the cold pack for a few seconds to activate; the pack will begin to turn cold within seconds.

Step 3 Apply underwrap

3. Apply underwrap to provide compression, or a towel, create a barrier against the skin to prevent cold burn. Secure the cold pack to the injured area using a cohesive bandage or PhysioWrap; this will also provide additional compression.

In the video below Dr Allan Munro and Mike Carolan, experts in sports rehabilitation, take you through the steps on how to use the instant cold pack to treat injuries safely and effectively:

When to seek medical assistance

While our Sterofreeze Instant Cold Packs are an exceptional solution for immediate relief from minor injuries, it's crucial to know when to consult a medical professional:

  • If the pain continues or worsens after multiple applications of the cold pack.
  • If the swelling is significant or doesn't reduce with the application of cold packs.
  • If the injury results in restricted movement or the inability to bear weight.
  • Look out for redness, warmth, pus, or if the injured area becomes increasingly tender.
  • If the skin becomes overly irritated or you notice any adverse reaction after applying the cold pack.
  • If you're unsure about the severity of the injury or the best treatment approach.
  • Other Symptoms: If you experience dizziness, fainting, or any other concerning symptoms alongside the injury.

Remember, while Sterofreeze Instant Cold Packs offer immediate relief and can effectively manage pain symptoms, they're not a substitute for medical evaluation and treatment. Always prioritise your health and safety by seeking expert advice when needed.
