Helps with both acute and chronic injuries
- Injuries and dislocations of joints
- Torn muscle or tendon, sprains, strains, muscle spasms
- Oedema, haematomas
- Postoperative swelling
In reaction to the extreme cold, hormones including adrenaline and B-Endorphines are released which are powerful natural pain killers. This provides immediate pain relief.
Stimulates immediate improvement in blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Promotes reduction of haematomas, oedemas and swellings.
Reduced systemic inflammation reduces the muscle tension, which increases the range of movement and allows faster rehabilitation.
Encourages a favorable biological response to the cold stress. This has been linked to improved levels of well-being.
