How Does it Work?
Cold or cryotherapy can be used to vaso-constrict local blood vessels following injury. Short periods of cold applied immediately after injury restrict local blood supply and this limits bleeding and thus subsequent swelling or oedema. Cooling also reduces the metabolic demand of surrounding tissues so they become less likely to suffer injury due to interruption of their normal blood supply during the injury. Often used as part of the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) protocol
Heat is used to promote blood flow to an injured area in the sub acute or chronic injury and to induce relaxation of local muscles that may be in spasm. Blood brings in the oxygen and nutrients required for healing and repair.
