Cold Therapy Relief

Cold Therapy (Cryotherapy) Helps Relieve Pain And Swelling

Cold therapy, also called cryotherapy, is a very effective therapy to reduce pain and inflammation. It is commonly used after an acute injury (such as a sprain) to control the resulting swelling and pain. How does cold therapy work? The application of cold therapy causes the blood vessels to narrow, reducing the amount of blood that flows into the area. This lessens the amount of swelling that occurs. Ice therapy is more effective at relieving pain than hot packs or heat therapy. This is due to the fact that the human body has more cold receptors than hot and the nerve sensors carry the tremendous amount of cold signals to the brain not causing the brain to not be able to focus as much on the pain signals.

Besides first aid, cold therapy is often used by athletes post-activity, and is often indicated for post-surgery inflammation and pain management. Body cooling products can be a real help to those with heat intolerance, such as with multiple sclerosis, and those who work in hot temperatures. We have all your cold therapy products at Painreliever.com, including ice packs and ice wraps for every body area, continuous flow cold therapy for post-op, and much more.
