Ice pack cryotherapy consists of applying cold compresses to the skin which reduces temperature and constricts blood vessels in the area. Applied to fresh injuries, it can help reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation.

If you’ve ever knocked your shin or sprained your ankle, you have probably already been introduced to this form of treatment. What you may not know is that ice pack cryotherapy can still be beneficial well after you suffer your initial injury.

Treatment and Benefits

Ice pack cryotherapy is an excellent way to help with muscle spasms and is known to help numb painful areas while providing a cooling relief to the affected soft tissues. Commonly used in sports medicine, its ability to ease pain and decrease inflammation can be helpful to those in rehabilitation programs for injuries or who suffer from chronic pain.
