Metadata[+] Show full item record
Ice and cold application (cold cryotherapy) have long been used by athletic trainers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physicians in the treatment of soft-tissue musculoskeletal injury. It is safe to say the idea is not new. Hippocrates first described the use of cold application as an analgesic measure around 400 BC.
