How does cold therapy work?
Cold therapy is effective for a variety of reasons. First, it decreases fluid build up (swelling) in the injured body part. Second, it slows the release of chemicals that cause pain and inflammation. Third, cold decreases pain by reducing the ability of the nerve endings to conduct impulses. And lastly, it aids in pain relief by limiting the muscle’s ability to maintain contraction, thus reducing muscle spasm. Because of these benefits, cold therapy is generally prescribed throughout the duration of your rehabilitation.
Why is motorized cold therapy better than ice or gel packs?
Ice and gel packs administer intense cold over a small application area for a short period of time, requiring frequent trips to the freezer.
Cold therapy systems, such as the Breg Polar Care Cube, deliver a motorized flow of cold therapy through circulation pads that are specifically designed for different body parts and applications. And, they deliver cold within a comfortable temperature range that allows for longer-term application according to your physician’s prescribed treatment protocol. Depending on the type of unit you are provided, the system will typically maintain its cold for 6-11 hours per ice change.
Compression is another widely recognized method for relieving uncomfortable swelling associated with surgery. Polar Care Cube cold therapy systems help to alleviate this condition by comfortably compressing the injury site, thus aiding the healing process.
How does a cold therapy system work?
