what is COLD therapy

When an acute injury occurs (eg, sprain or strain), blood vessels, capillaries and veins will widen and blood flow towards the affected area will increase. This process causes swelling and pain. The main goal of cold treatments for an acute injury is to constrict these dilated blood vessels and reduce blood transport (vasoconstriction).
With a cold treatment in the first 72 hours after injury the pain will decrease significantly and the swelling will subside faster.

when to apply COLD therapy

The use of cold is most suitable in acute conditions (meaning that the injury has recently taken place); such as:
• Sprains: injury caused by overstretching ligaments
• Bruises: occurs when a blood vessel tears under the skinsurface
• Overloads: caused by repetitive (too) heavy movements
Growing pains: pains in joints, muscles and tendons that arises as a result of pressure due to the difference in growth speed of the different muscle and joint groups.

when NOT to apply COLD therapy

Do not apply cold therapy for the treatment of chronic conditions (for which heat treatments are more appropriate) and never apply cold to open wounds.
Also, never use cold before exercise as it can increase the risk of muscle and / or tendon strains.
