Cold Compression Therapy by ShowReady

cold compression

Cold water has long been used as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic for all animals.  Combining dry cold temperatures with alternating pressure greatly improves the removal of heat and edema while improving circulation.  The circulating cold water removes heat and reintroduces colder water every few minutes. 

The alternating compression drives the cold deep into the tissues then releases  it allowing for improved circulation and further reducing inflammation.  Cold compression therapy has been successfully used for horses with tendon injuries, sore muscles, cellulitis/lymphangitis or even as a post operative aid to reduce swelling and pain.
