Why is cold therapy beneficial?

Feb 25th, 2021 Healthworks Regina

After an injury or surgery, the body’s natural response is to produce inflammation of the injury or area that was operated on. Inflammation consists of swelling, warmth, redness, and pain in the area. Ice has been used for many years to control inflammation. The regular use of ice or cold after an injury or surgery, known as cold therapy (aka cryo physical therapy or cryotherapy), can significantly reduce inflammation and assist in faster recovery times.
