Ice Compression System Q & A

What is an ice compression system?

An ice compression system is an innovative tool the physical therapists at MPOWER Performance Institute use to support your recovery following surgery or an injury.

The ice compression system combines cold therapy with compression to reduce pain and swelling. Combining the two healing techniques supports your body’s healing process and helps you recover faster. 

The ice compression system works by first reducing your swelling and pain and then increasing blood flow to the injured tissue to accelerate tissue healing. 

If you’re looking for innovative therapies to improve your healing, the health experts at MPOWER Performance Institute can help. 

Am I a candidate for the ice compression system?

Your physical therapist at MPOWER Performance Institute determines if you’re a candidate for the ice compression system during your therapy sessions. 

MPOWER Performance Institute specializes in sports medicine and sports injuries. They may consider you a candidate for the ice compression system to support healing of your:

  • Strain or sprain
  • Knee injury
  • Broken bone 
  • Tendon or ligament tear

They also use the ice compression system to alleviate pain and swelling. 

MPOWER Performance Institute may also recommend this healing therapy for surgical patients to reduce post-surgical pain and improve tissue healing and recovery. 

What happens during treatment with the ice compression system?

The ice compression system is an in-office treatment. During treatment, your physical therapist places the ice compression system wrap around your injured tissue. The cold wrap inflates and deflates every 10 seconds or so to get the desired effects.

Your physical therapist may leave the ice compression system wrap in place for up to 20 minutes before removing it.

The team at MPOWER Performance Institute includes the ice compression system as part of your comprehensive treatment plan. The goal of therapy is to help you take charge of your health and reach your personal goals faster.

The ice compression system is one of many innovative tools the team at MPOWER Performance Institute uses to help you recover from your injury or surgical procedure. To schedule a consultation with the patient-focused team, call the nearest office or book online today.
