What Is Cold Therapy?

Cryotherapy, also known as cold therapy, is an age-old method for managing pain and inflammation. For thousands of years, people have applied cold temperatures to injury sites to help heal the area and regain their range of motion.

How Does Cold Therapy Work?

Basic versions of cold therapy include ice massages, gel packs and cold towels. A more modern, convenient method calls for a cold therapy machine specifically designed to deliver benefits of cryotherapy.

Pain Reduction

When cold temperatures are applied to an injured area, soft tissues around the site are numbed.

This helps reduce pain because it reduces the production of pain mediators and slows pain signals sent to your nerves. Furthermore, cold temperatures cause nerve cells to constrict and the flow of blood is reduced, ultimately resulting in moderated pain.

Minimize Inflammation

Inflammation after experiencing an injury is common due to a natural increase in the number of white blood cells. When an injured area is exposed to extreme cold, anti-inflammatory norepinephrine is triggered and reduces the presence of swelling.

Better Mood and Sleep

Exposure to cold temperatures naturally increases endorphins in the body, resulting in a mood boost and better sleep. Quality rest both helps deal with pain and has a positive impact on overall mood and wellness.

Cryotherapy is also well known for sharing additional benefits, such as:

  • Reducing migraine symptoms
  • Boosting metabolism
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Increasing mental clarity
  • Strengthening the immune system

Cold therapy is a safe and effective means of reducing pain and inflammation, making it a great alternative to prescription pain and sleep medication.

Who Is Cold Therapy For?

Cold therapy treatments are most commonly used among athletes, post-operative patients and people experiencing conditions associated with chronic pain, such as arthritis.

Although, cold therapy can benefit anyone who seeks a natural, non-invasive method to experience increased wellness. Cold therapy does not require a prescription and is a safe treatment to manage pain, reduce inflammation and boost overall wellbeing.

Next, connect the tube to the cuff and open the air vent on the cooler lid. Raise the cooler no more than 15 inches above the cryocuff to fill for about 30 seconds, until the cryocuff is full. The cuff will increase in volume and weight.
