Are You Using
the BEST COLD THERAPY for You and Your Horses?
Ice, chemical packs,
gel packs, cold-therapy units / pumping machines and alcohol-based cooling products are not
the best cold therapy treatment for pain, swelling, hematoma's
(bruises) heat exhaustion, hemophilia or other inflammation-related disorders
in either humans or animals.
The "colder is better" concept
is "old news", (See Japan Study) as it has been shown
that ice, cold-therapy pumps / units, gel and chemical packs can actually increase
irritation, swelling and serious, nonreversible damage of the affected tissues if
they are not applied appropriately. If this occurs,
it increases the risk of further exacerbation of the skin and other soft-tissue
injuries, often resulting in long-term damage to blood skin,
vessels, tendons and both the superficial and deep muscle layers. (Many companies producing such continuous cooling / pumping devices are now being sued throughout the United States for causing irreversible damage.
As for alcohol based
products, they only provide "surface" cooling,
and do not reduce the temperature of the deeper layers
of muscle enough to be therapeutically beneficial.
These types of products often cause vasodilatation of
the surface blood vessels thereby increasing irritation
and swelling in the more superficial tissues as well
as irritation of abraded or dry skin.
