Cryotherapy (Cold Packs)

Cryotherapy (cold therapy) is an excellent way to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin; decrease traumatic swelling; and decrease pain and muscle spasms in the body. Surface cooling constricts blood vessels, numbs painful areas and helps relax muscle spasms. Cold temperatures reduce nerve transmission of painful symptoms and provide temporary relief.
This therapy is well known to help numb the painful areas of injury, as well as, provide a cooling relief to affected soft tissues. The therapy consists of applying cold compresses on the skin to effectively constrict the local blood vessels and reduce the temperature of the skin and internal soft tissues.
Ice is most often used to manage acute injuries or acute exacerbations of chronic conditions. Cooling affected tissues is effective in reducing and preventing post traumatic swelling. Local cooling should be applied several times a day during the acute stage of the injury.
