More than 10 million sports injuries occur every year and 95 percent of those involve soft tissue, injuries like bruises, strains, or sprains. This is why Orthoco carries Gebauer's Instant Ice Stream Spray. This particular spray has similar effects to putting ice on parts of the body that have been injured, but without having to carry around (and freeze) a bunch of ice packs all day. The convenience and ease of use is why athletes use this when on the field and clinicians use it for rehabbing their patients..
Jim Ramsay, head athletic trainer for the New York Rangers hockey team, has been using Gebauer topical skin refrigerants for years. He says,
"Instant Ice is great for on-the-scene care. If a player gets hit on the wrist or takes a puck off the shin, I can easily anesthetize the area with Instant Ice to reduce the pain, allowing the player to get back in the game quickly."
Gebauer's Instant Ice Stream Spray is becoming more popular for treating minor injuries especially among high school and college coaches and recreational teams all around the country.
