Ice pack cryotherapy is when cold compresses are applied to the skin. This reduces temperature and constricts blood vessels. When this technique is used on new injuries, it reduces pain, swelling and inflammation. Ice is a wide-spread treatment that is typically applied to most sprains and bruises right after they occur. Ice pack cryotherapy is a bit different because it is used later on after the initial injury has occurred. It has many benefits.
