"I have had terrible cramps in my thighs. I find the only thing that takes away these excruciating pains is the Polar Soft Ice Pack (and wrap). Just 5-10 minutes of the ice pack & I'm good to go! I also have Gout in two toes. The Polar Soft Ice Pack does wonders for that too. It takes away the itching & terrible hurt in a few minutes. I highly recommend the Soft Ice Packs from Polar. They certainly do the trick.

Benefits of Cold Therapy:
In an article published by the Journal of Clinical Rheumatol titled, Response to application of ice may help differentiate between gouty arthritis and other inflammatory arthritides, researchers noted that: "Heat and cold are adjuvant treatments for arthritis. In gouty arthritis, cold applications are a useful adjunct to treatment and may help discriminate patients with gout from other forms of inflammatory arthritis.” Source: PubMed.gov
Also, in an article on the Arthritis Foundation's website titled, Managing a Gout Flare, officials recommend people take several, fast-acting and important steps when experiencing a gout flare. These include to: "take medicine you have on hand, ice down - applying an ice pack to the painful joint may help ease pain and inflammation, call your doctor, drink lots of nonalcohol fluids, and elevate your foot.” Source: Arthritis Foundation
