During sporting activities a twisted ankle or knee, or a bruised shoulder can happen faster than you think. By use of cold therapy for small sports injuries, such as strains and bruises, excessive reactions of the body can be prevented. Cold constricts the blood vessels and slows down the metabolism. Thus, bleeding and swelling can be alleviated as well as pain relieved. By cooling in time, it is also possible to prevent damage to the muscles so that you soon feel better and can resume your training as quickly as possible.

This information contributes to a better understanding but should never replace a visit to the doctor in the event of an injury.
