Cryotherapy consists of the careful use of cold. It is primarily applied as preparative or supportive measure for therapeutic exercise in acute posttraumatic or post-operative conditions. Cryotherapy helps prevent blood effusions into the surrounding tissue and swellings, reduce inflammations, and relieve pain by easing muscle tension.
The cryotherapy can be performed with ice wraps or cold air, but also with another cooling medium, such cream cheese or “Retterspitz” poultices.
