COLD / ICE / CRYOTHERAPY INFORMATION
Cryotherapy is the application of Ice to inflamed or swollen tissues such as tendons or bursae. Cryotherapy or ‘Cold Therapy’ has been found to be as effective in reducing pain and swelling as more aggressive treatments such as injection therapy. It has also been found to be effective in reducing inflammation post-surgery.
The Groovi Freeze is a waterproof, insulated, super-cold reusable Ice bag complete with compression brace, that stays consistently cold for ages.
The Groovi Freeze is a wonderful treatment aid that will stay cold far longer than it takes to achieve the beneficial effects from Icing the affected area.
The Groovi compression brace allows you to carry on with your normal activities. Simply apply the compression elastics and you can keep moving whilst the Ice is working its magic. The compression is indicated to further assist in providing support to the affected area (such as ankle sprains, groin strains or shoulder injuries) as well as reduce the swelling.
The Groovi Freeze has an analgesic effect and therefore reduces pain as well as swelling in injured tissues such as after an acute ankle sprain.
Conditions that will benefit from The Groovi Freeze include acute traumatic and sporting injuries at various bodily regions resulting in back pain, neck pain, shoulder, knee, ankle and/ or hip pain.
The application of Ice is indicated for skin irritations, such as after a bee sting or for relief from burns.
For acute pain and swelling it is recommended that you apply the Groovi Freeze for 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off as often as you can in the 1st 72 hours.
