As of lately it seems I am using more ice for various aches and pains. I also use it preventively when I go on a long run or ride. The biggest challenge I have had is how to hold the ice on the effected area. I have used ace bandages and they work well, I have also used a pillowcase which believe it or not works extremely well.
In the latest issue of USAT times they had a link to these, which I found to be very interesting. A little pricey but I like them.
I particularly like the 2002 model top row 2nd over.
