Game Ready Publishes Guide to Post-Operative Cryotherapy and Compression

Cryotherapy Technology Leader's New E-Book Details the Benefits of Combining Cold and Compression Following Surgery

CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - April 09, 2015) - Game Ready®, the leader in active compression and cold therapy technology for injury treatment and post-operative recovery, today announced it is publishing a new guide detailing the benefits of combining pneumatic compression and cryotherapy during recovery from surgery. The e-book, The Advantages of Intermittent Pneumatic Compression and Cryotherapy Treatment for Post-Operative Patient Care, is available for free download at www.gameready.com/post-op-cryotherapy-and-compression.

The use of cryotherapy to treat inflammation and pain dates back to ancient times. The addition of compression to traditional cryotherapy has further improved the rate of tissue healing, the reduction of edema, and the ability to control pain. When employed as a post-surgery treatment, intermittent pneumatic cryo-compression reduces the pain and inflammation most patients feel, but without the potentially harmful side effects of medications. Game Ready's new guide helps healthcare providers by:

  • Describing six benefits of intermittent pneumatic cryo-compression therapy following surgery
  • Detailing how cryo-compression can help at every post-operative recovery phase
  • Providing examples of surgeries that can benefit from post-operative cryo-compression

"Although both cold therapy and compression on their own are valid approaches, their simultaneous application has been shown to provide the most measurable benefits," says Craig Grabell, President and CEO of Game Ready. "The development of specialized wraps designed for various areas of the body has enabled intermittent pneumatic cryo-compression to be used in a much broader range of post-surgical applications, thus taking cryotherapy from a passive to an active therapy/treatment. Our new e-book is a resource for hospitals, clinics, and practices thinking about adopting this innovative treatment option."
