The R.I.C.E. Method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) may help relieve the pain of bruises. Ice/cold therapy is recommended immediately following an injury to help with bruising. Heat therapy is recommended to help clear up the bruising later on. Our cold & hot therapy products can help.

Relevant Articles on Bruises regarding Cold & Heat Therapy:

"Put ice on your bruise right after you get injured. That can reduce the size of your bruise, which may allow it to heal faster. The cold temperature from an ice pack makes the blood in that area flow more slowly. It may reduce the amount of blood that leaks out of your vessels. Heat boosts blood flow, and that can help clear up a bruise. Wait until 48 hours after the bruise appeared, then put a heating pad or warm compress on it several times a day. You also might soak in a hot bath to ease pain and loosen up your muscles." https://www.webmd.com/first-aid/helping-bruise-heal

"You can help your bruises heal faster by:

  • Resting and elevating the injured area to prevent swelling and to relieve pain.
  • Applying ice packs for the first 24 to 48 hours after injury. Wrap the ice pack in a towel and apply ice for no more than 15 minutes at a time. Repeat throughout the day.
  • Applying a heating pad or warm compress to the injured area after two days. You can apply heat several times throughout the day."
