What cold therapies are there?

Let's start with cold. There are different forms of cold therapy that can be used to enhance your recovery, health and performance.


The ice bath

Other common methods include local cold applications . Specific areas of the body are treated with cold.

In addition to conventional ice packs or cold packs, the brand new thermal sleeves from Reboots are your perfect solution to recover even faster and more effectively. Especially in sports with a high strain on joints, tendons and ligaments, this reusable cold application is your ideal partner for treating inflammation or injuries in the most commonly affected muscle and joint parts of your body. This includes your elbows, wrists, knees, thighs, calves, and ankles.

Note: There are studies that have found that immediate cold therapy immediately after a workout can potentially impair muscle adaptation and growth. Cold therapy, such as ice baths or cold applications, can inhibit the inflammatory response and the muscles' natural repair process.

After exercise, there is an inflammatory response in the muscle, which is part of the natural healing process and leads to the adaptation and strengthening of your muscles. This inflammatory response stimulates muscle protein synthesis and promotes muscle growth.

By using cold therapy immediately after a workout, the inflammatory response can be mitigated, which can potentially have a negative impact on muscle growth.

In other words: It's best to avoid ice baths and cryotherapy right after your workout if muscle building is the main goal of your workout.

What are the benefits of cold therapy for you as an athlete?

 Cold has many positive effects on the body, especially when it comes to recovery after intense training or competitions.

Reducing Inflammation: Cold can help reduce inflammation in your muscles and joints after intense exercise or injury. The application of cold slows blood flow and reduces swelling, which can lead to faster recovery.

Pain Relief: Cold therapy can reduce pain after injury or intense exercise. The cold can temporarily numb the pain receptors, providing short-term pain relief.

Improved muscle recovery and recovery: Cold therapy can reduce recovery time after exercise. Applying cold can reduce muscle soreness, regenerate muscle tissue, and reduce muscle fatigue.

Improving Your Performance: By reducing inflammation and pain and promoting muscle recovery, cold therapy can help improve your performance. By reducing recovery time, it allows for more intense training and a quicker return to activity.

Strengthens your immune system: Regular ice baths arm you against infections. Doctors have shown that the cold baths increase the number of leukocytes in the blood. The white blood cells are your body's immune security guard, so to speak.

Injury Prevention: Applying cold after exercise or in the event of an acute injury can reduce the risk of tissue damage and further injury. Cold can constrict blood vessels and reduce blood flow, reducing the risk of swelling and bleeding.

Which heat therapies are there?

There are different forms of heat therapy . These are some common shapes:

Warm baths and sauna

A warm bath can help relax muscles and reduce stress. Soaking in warm water can relieve pain and promote overall relaxation. The sauna is one of the most popular forms of heat therapy and is used both for relaxation purposes and to promote health and well-being.

infrared therapy

Infrared therapy uses infrared light to infuse heat into tissues. This can be used to relieve muscle and joint pain and to promote relaxation.

Hot stone massage

During the hot stone massage, smooth, heated stones are placed on the body and gently massaged. The warmth of the stones helps to relieve tension, improve circulation and promote relaxation.

heat patches or ointments

Heat patches or ointments contain active ingredients that have a warming effect on the skin. They are applied to the affected area and can be used to relieve muscle and joint pain.

Hot compresses

In this method, a warm towel or warm compress is placed on the affected area. The heat helps improve circulation, relieve tension, and relieve pain.

What are the benefits of heat therapy?

Muscle Relaxation: Heat helps relax muscles and release tension. By applying heat, blood flow is increased, which leads to better oxygenation of the muscles and improves their flexibility.

Increase Blood Circulation: Heat increases blood circulation and increases blood flow to the muscles. This can help improve muscle function and aid in the absorption of nutrients.

Injury Prevention: Applying heat before a workout or competition warms up muscles, reducing the risk of injury. Warm-ups with heat therapy help to make muscles more flexible and increase range of motion.

Stress Relief: Heat can also help reduce stress and promote relaxation. The application of heat stimulates the release of endorphins, which contributes to an overall feeling of well-being.

Find the perfect balance

The optimal use of cold and heat therapy lies in the right balance. Here are some recommendations on how to incorporate both methods into your training and recovery plan:

Pre-workout: If you need an energy boost before a workout, a quick 1-2 minute ice bath or cold shower can help. This can help stimulate the nervous system and increase your focus and energy before a workout. Note: Before you start exercising, it's even more important to warm up your muscles and improve your flexibility.

After Training: After training or a strenuous competition, it is advisable to use cold therapy such as the Reboots Compression Sleeves to reduce inflammation and promote recovery. A visit to the sauna or a warm bath can also help to relax the muscles, promote blood circulation and thereby heal sore muscles and strains more efficiently.

For injuries: For acute injuries or swelling, cold therapy is often the first choice to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Heat should be avoided as it can lead to increased blood flow and swelling.

Injury Prevention: To prevent injury, a combination of heat and stretching before exercise can help. Warming up the muscles and then stretching them improves their flexibility and reduces the risk of injury.
