Heat and cold therapy are both incredibly popular pain relief options, and for good reason. Both of these therapy options have wonderful benefits that are great for old injuries, post-workout soreness, strains, and swelling. At Noriega Chiropractic Clinics, we offer both heat and cold therapy to help reduce pain and speed recovery. Our team of experts are here to help you figure out which therapy option is right for your particular condition.
What Are the Benefits of Cold Therapy?
If you have been seeking any of these incredible benefits, our highly-trained staff can assist you in properly performing cold therapy. Typically, we utilize an ice pack for a specified amount of time to reduce blood flow to a particular area, causing the blood vessels to constrict, which is what assists in reducing swelling, pain, and inflammation. Because cold therapy can affect your blood pressure, circulation, and heart rate, it’s important that it is performed with the assistance of a medical professional.
Cold therapy has a number of great benefits, including:
- Reduced soreness
- Decreasing swelling
- Spiking energy levels
- Decreasing inflammation
- Boosting the immune system
- Improving muscle recovery
- Decreasing pain
- And more
