Therapeutic cold is used to manage tissue injury (Cryotherapy) and to

alleviate pain (Cryoanalgesia)

The preoperative and postoperative use of Continuous Cold Therapy after knee arthroplasty is effective in terms of pain control and functional knee scores without a significant change in surgical blood loss (1 ).Continuous Cold Therapy has been shown to decrease blood loss, pain and swelling of the operative knee versus an ice bag or the use of traditional narcotics (1). Studies have also shown lower pain scores vs. epidural analgesia, Robert Jones bandage, narcotic administration, and crushed ice. Overall, most studies noted no difference in range of motion of the operative knee, a decrease in swelling, and a decrease in blood loss with the cold compression (2).

The Benefits of Safe and Comfortable Cold Therapy 

Cold temperatures slow down the rate of cellular metabolism allowing for the survival of damaged cells.  These cells would have otherwise died due to the high metabolic activity of the neighbouring healthy cells

Cold temperature reduces the extent of tissue damage, allowing the affected tissues, ligaments, joints, and muscles to heal

The cold penetrates deeply through the tissues and into the joints causing a numbing of the nerve endings and reduced transmission of pain sensation from the injury site to the brain

RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) therapy is a very effective way to manage muscle, ligament and joint injury
