Cold has long been known to be an effective treatment for inflamed joints. Many people with rheumatism have said that ice swimming helps alleviate pain. But to be a truly effective tool in pain management, ice swimming really should be done daily. That’s why the cold pool is such a great way to relieve pain from rheumatism – in addition to all the other benefits of cold treatment, of course.
Studies have shown that cold therapy reduces pain and joint problems in rheumatic patients and decreases the joint temperature, which may reduce the activity of the neurotransmitters that cause inflammation and joint damage. Cold treatment is recommended in combination with the medicine prescribed by your doctor. Exercise initiated immediately after cold treatment and joint movement exercise for patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis have also been shown to be less painful.
Before starting a continuous cold treatment for a rheumatic patient, we recommend that you consult with your doctor.
