Elastoplast Cold Spray cools and relieves the pain associated
with contusions, dislocations and strains. It can be applied rapidly
and precisely to the affected area.
A strain to the muscle or tendon can happen when the muscle is over stretched or excessively worked. This can cause the muscle to swell or fibres to rupture as in a torn hamstring. It may be painful and difficult to move or walk. Strains usually take one to six weeks to heal.
Serious injuries, such as to the head, neck or abdomen, need to be managed by a professional – calling an ambulance will usually be the first priority. Relevant first aid or medical training is required before a person can safely offer to help in the case of life-threatening injuries.
