Description

Experience the benefits of cryotherapy with MCT for enhanced recovery and regeneration. Introducing cold compression with range of motion immediately after exercise will decrease the negative effects of inflammation and in turn, reduce muscle soreness and muscle spasms for any level of athlete. If used appropriately for injury, the cold sensation can override the pain sensation (pain gate theory) and prevent the development of future muscle imbalances.
