|The healing properties of ice have been widely recognised for hundreds of years in relation to trauma and injury. By controlling the temperature of the treatment, providing the optimum temperature for the body to recover and allowing treatment to be applied for prolonged periods of time, these healing properties can be elevated even further.
Hilotherapy can be used to reduce pain, swelling and bruising following injury and is sometimes used to reduce the swelling sufficiently to allow surgery to take place. It has applications in a wide range of sports including cricket, rugby, boxing, football, athletics and ice hockey - and has been used by sports stars Nicola Adams, Lennox Lewis, Jade Johnson and Stuart Broad.
