Cryotherapy and Intermittent Compression

Reduce pain and swelling with our cryotherapy and compression treatment.

The game-changing GRPro 2.1 integrates intermittent pneumatic compression and cryotherapy to reduce pain and swelling, reduce muscle spasms, enhance lymphatic function, encourage cellular oxygen supply, and stimulate tissue repair – naturally and without analgesics. Compared to traditional RICE applications, the Game Ready System offers more therapeutic benefits. And that means improved outcomes for patients.

WHAT IS IT?

Game Ready’s patented technology delivers adjustable, intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC). IPC mimics natural muscle contractions to “pump” edema (swelling) away from the injury area, encourages oxygenated blood flow, and helps conform the wraps to the body for better surface contact and deeper penetrating cold therapy – all to help with the healing process. IPC has been shown to be most effective when combined with cryotherapy. Cold therapy promotes vasoconstriction and reduces blood flow, reduces inflammation and edema (swelling), decreases muscle spasms, decreases metabolic demand, and helps safely relieve pain without narcotics. Cold therapy is used immediately following exercise, acute injury or surgery and as needed thereafter.

WHY DO IT?

MANY LEADING ATHLETES, TRAINERS AND FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS AROUND THE WORLD CURRENTLY USE THIS TECHNOLOGY.

WHAT CAN I USE IT ON? 

We recommend cryotherapy and compression for conditions affecting the following body parts: shoulders, hips, legs, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers. We do not recommend this treatment for spinal conditions as we believe other approaches are more effective and evidence based.
