Cold Therapy

Return to Product Listing

Just as with heat, the proper application of cold temperatures has therapeutic benefits, especially in treating acute injuries. Oftentimes, alternating the application of cold and hot temperatures aids in pain relief and reduces muscle spasms. Whitehall® Glacier Packs, regulated to a proper cold temperature by Glacier Freeze Chilling units, are applied to the body for fast and effective cold therapy.

Cold application is thought to create a muscle guarding effect that constricts damaged tissue and prevents further damage. Cold temperatures also result in vasoconstriction which narrows blood vessels and reduces swelling.
