Using Cryotherapy to Heal Sports Injuries
by Joseph Marie General
Cryotherapy has been used for many years to treat soft tissue musculoskeletal injuries. If you’ve ever had to do post-op rehabilitation, you may have been advised to follow the RICE (Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation). The traditional ice application includes wrapping the injury with a plastic bag filled with crushed ice, or using an ace wrap over the ice-filled bag to try and provide some compression along with the cryotherapy. These methods are inconvenient, messy, irritating and hard to stick with over time. And when you don’t stay with a regimen of cryotherapy, you recover more slowly from your injury.
Fortunately, technology advances have greatly improved cryotherapy systems to deliver more therapeutic benefits, therefore speeding up your healing and returning you to an active life. The IsoComforter cold therapy system delivers a wide range of benefits:
• Decreases pain
• Reduces swelling
• Decreases muscle spasms
• Reduces edema
• Improves tissue healing
• Efficient and rapid removal of heat transfer from the injury site
• Reduces or eliminates need for pain medication post-injury
Surveys of patients who have used cryotherapy systems after surgery or sports injury report excellent results:
• Over 90 percent say it helped them return to work or daily activities sooner
• Over 94 percent say it reduced the amount of pain medication they took or allowed them to stop the medication sooner
• Over 94 percent say it provided quicker post-operative recovery than they experienced in previous surgery using no cold therapy
