Utilizing a splint, sling or brace can sometimes help a specific area of the body to rest until the pain subsides. They can likewise assist with fixing a part of the shoulder or arm to allow for the area to heal correctly.

Cooling treatment (known as cryotherapy) is utilized within sports injury treatment to lessen tissue temperature, pain, blood flow, and metabolism in the impacted area. It is a well-researched treatment especially for soft tissue injuries such as strains and sprains.

At the point when an injury occurs, there is inflammation and pain. Oedema (swelling) happens because of an increase in blood flow to the injured site. The use of Physicool’s cooling bandage diminishes the tissue temperature around the injured site resulting in constriction of the local blood vessels; accordingly lessening swelling and blood flow, treating the harmed area. Reducing the amount of swelling early on will lessen the pain as the nerve endings at the injury site will not be as compressed. Thus, the sooner Physicool is utilized to treat a games injury, the more noteworthy the advantage and the speedier the rehabilitation.
