Effectiveness of Salted Ice Bag Versus Cryo-Compression on Decreasing Intramuscular and Skin Temperature.

CONTEXT Rest, ice, compression, and elevation are commonly recommended immediately post-injury. Traditionally, ice bag with elastic wrap compression has been utilized, however recently intermittent cryo-compression units are being used. Limited research has evaluated tissue temperature decreases with intermittent cryo-compression units. OBJECTIVE Evaluate… CONTINUE READING
