8. Pain And Swelling
You know how much an ice pack can help with pain and swelling if you have ever sprayed your ankle or sprayed your bone. For decades, doctors recommend elevating your legs and putting ice on the area, since it works so well to ease pain.
Cold showers work similarly to heal a wound, although ice is still advisable as an extra. Ice and cold temperatures help reduce inflammation, pain, or swelling of the blood vessels.
Cold showers can also engulf the ends of the nerves that provide the brain with a pain signal.
