Enjoy a quick recovery after effort with Cold Compression technology!!
What is Cold Compression?
Cold Compression is a method of rapid recovery for athletes, which combines the benefits of compression therapies with those of low temperature, to reduce the discomfort caused by overloading the joints and muscles.
Compression therapy increases oxygen levels and stimulates blood circulation, helping to reduce edema and speed up tissue healing. Particularly beneficial in treating acute pain, cryotherapy reduces blood flow to the affected area, which reduces inflammation and the risk of swelling of the tissue.
Combining these two, Cold Compression involves exposing certain parts of the body to low, controlled temperatures for a certain amount of time (usually a few minutes), while applying local pressure.
