What is ice spray

Ice spray is a medical device, usually available in an aluminium can, used to treat pain and swelling in the event of trauma or bruising. This product is ready to use and can therefore be used in case of need at any time. Its use is particularly frequent in sports, but can also be useful in other contexts such as home or school.


In general, ice spray is a useful remedy in all of the following cases:

  • Trauma
  • Contusions
  • Luxations
  • Bruises
  • Tendinitis
  • Strains
  • Tennis elbow


Thanks to cryotherapy and the vasoconstrictor action, the ice spray reduces the possibility of bleeding, as well as the formation of oedema and swelling.


Ice spray: how to use it

Using ice spray is very simple, you just need to take some precautions to avoid irritation or minor burns. Stay at a distance of at least 20 cm from the affected area and spray. 


In addition, you should avoid applying ice spray on open wounds, broken or irritated skin, as well as towards eyes, nose, ears and mouth.


How long does the ice spray effect last?

The ice spray, unlike the ice bag, creates a cooling effect on the skin for a few minutes, just enough to decrease the blood supply to the part of the bruised body and soothe the pain. It is advisable to spray ice for up to three applications, as ice refrigeration is quite strong.


For whom is ice spray recommended?

Its use is particularly frequent in sports, but can also be useful in other contexts such as home or school.

It is ideal for first aid in the case of: 

  • injuries to muscles caused by sports activity;
  • fall trauma;
  • trauma from hits in contact sports.


Contraindications of ice spray

As mentioned before, ice spray has an immediate analgesic effect thanks to the power of its cooling jet. For this reason it is essential to use it with the necessary precautions, or there may be undesirable effects on the injured person. If used for too long, for example, it can cause cold burns (or ice burns).


In some cases, however, it is possible that some people do not tolerate cold therapy, such as in the case of diabetics, with arteriosclerosis, with cardiological diseases or in general with physical conditions that lead to hypersensitivity to cold.


The use of instant ice spray can also have some contraindications such as:

  • circulatory disorder;
  • venous thrombosis;
  • cold urticaria;
  • tissues affected by tuberculosis;
  • untreated haemorrhagic disorders.

For the safety of all, we always recommend consulting a doctor before proceeding with the use of ice spray.
