Daniel Wilson Sports Injury Mangement

To administer this treatment, we use Cryo Cuff cryotherapy technology. This technology is also used to help speed up the healing process of an injury. After an injury blood vessels are damaged and this allows blood cells and fluid to seep into spaces around the joint, resulting in swelling and bruising. When ice is applied the temperature decreases and constricts local blood vessels, slowing metabolism and decreasing fluid build-up. Ice can also numb nerve endings, reducing the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain. 

The Cryo Cuff circulates ice cold water combined with the therapeutic benefits of controlled compression to minimise bleeding and swelling in and around the injured area, and cold to minimise pain. The cuff is anatomically designed to completely fit the joint or injured site to provide maximum benefit. Currently, we can use the Cryo Cuff to treat shoulder, knee, calf, ankle and foot injuries.
