Cold therapy is one of the oldest pain management techniques in the world. From the cold bags used by the ancient Greeks to the modern-day cold therapy systems, cryotherapy pain relief has been revolutionized with the help of medical research and technology. Cold therapy is generally used to treat acute injuries to your musculoskeletal system. Applying cold or ice therapy to an acute injury can help shorten recovery time and helps minimize pain and inflammation. Earlier, people used to directly apply a cold bag or ice bag to the injured or affected part, but no localized and targeted cold therapy is available in the form of cryotherapy systems that help reduce the time required as well as enhance the output of the therapy.
Cold therapy applies by reducing the temperature of the affected part of the body, resulting in blood vessels narrowing (also known as vasoconstriction) and reducing your metabolic rate, inflammation, circulation, and muscle spasms. This narrowing of the blood vessels causes a reduction in blood flow to the affected area, therefore reducing swelling. The benefits of cold therapy include:
