I love playing soccer. It’s really the only exercise I have: my women’s team plays on Monday and my coed team (with hubby) on Friday. But this aging body sometimes needs some caring for after a game. This week, it’s my ankle. Have you ever tried to keep an ice pack wrapped around an ankle? It’s hard, unless you hold it on with your hand. Your hand gets really cold and that’s not good. What the ice pack needs is some straps so I made this nifty ice pack holder to keep it in place.
The ice pack slips inside.
Here it is in action.
( There is no way I am showing my shorty toes or my bunion on my blog.)
Besides ice, I get to my Sports Therapy Chiropractor when I have injuries that just don’t get better. I’m sold on Active Release therapy. It’s pure genius from this former OT’s perspective. I would have quit playing months ago if I didn’t have my DC to fix up my pulled muscles.
