Cryotherapy is the use of cold / ice for therapeutic effect. I use an ice cup massage technique which is far superior to the traditional bag of peas.

 

It is most effective in the early, acute stages of injury, e - the first few days of injury.

 

Ice should be applied as soon as possible to an injury to -

 

                  - Reduce swelling

                 - Reduce pain

                 - Reduce Inflammation

 

Cryotherapy is the treatment of choice in the first few days of injury, following this a combination of hot and cold therapy is often beneficial in promote healing.
