Cryotherapy Or Cold Therapy

Cold therapy is used to induce vasoconstriction, which causes blood vessels to constrict or decrease in diameter. This reduces the fluid that leaks from the capillaries into tissue spaces. A cold or ice is most commonly used for acute injuries. However, it can also be used to relieve chronic pain. A cold therapy can be used by applying a cold pack to the area or by giving ice massages as shown in the video.
