Cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy, involves the use of cold temperatures to alleviate pain and inflammation. One type of cold therapy is the application of ice packs and ice massage to injured areas.
Ice can be used before or after a workout for faster recovery and decreased muscle soreness. Another option is to take an ice bath at home or in a spa after a workout. Ice baths help muscles recover faster and reduce soreness as well as the risk of injury.
The purpose of this therapy is to reduce pain and swelling, decrease blood flow to the area, prevent re-injury through limiting or stopping tissue damage, and increase range of motion.
