Common sport injuries include; sprains, strains, fractures, and overuse injuries. Over stretching or tearing of the ligaments results in a sprain. Ligaments are pieces of tissue that connect two bones to one another in a joint. They affect the ankle, shoulder, and the knee joints.
Affecting the shoulder, knee joints and ankles. Four pieces of muscle work together to form the rotator cuff. the rotator cuff keeps your shoulder moving in all directions. A tear in any of these muscles can weaken the rotator cuff. Any injury that interferes with how the knee joint moves could be a sports injury. It can range from an overstretch to a tear in the muscle or tissues in the knee.
After an injury or surgery, your body initiates a biological response to try and remove or heal damaged cells. This response is called inflammation, which is a defense mechanism in the body. Although inflammation is a good indicator of the start to the healing process, it can persist longer than needed and consequently cause more harm than benefit.
That’s where Cold Therapy comes into play. Applying a motorized cold therapy system or a motorized cold and compression system can help reduce inflammation, pain, stiffness and swelling to help you recover more quickly.
