I've been thinking it might be a good idea to ice Lilly's legs on a more frequent basis. Without getting ahead of myself as I always do, I'd like to think that one day she'll be back to regular work and icing after our rides might be something I need to add to the routine to help make sure she doesn't injure herself again. That being the case, a washcloth, a bag of peas, and a polo wrap isn't going to cut it.
So I've been shopping around for some cold therapy boots for Lilly and I was looking at these boots from Ice Horse:
The little ice inserts stay cold for up to two hours and you just toss them back into the freezer once you're done. Because Lilly's injury is so far up on her leg, I'm not sure they'll sit high enough on her leg to ice the area I need iced. Other than that, I like them and they run about $80 for a pair.
Then I stumbled across these Professional's Choice Ice Cells.
You just freeze them and put them under your SMB boots for instant cold therapy boots! I would still be concerned about the height of the ice packs, but two of these run $20.
I'm actually a bit surprised there aren't a thousand ice therapy boots to choose from...
