    Abstract

    Background: The basic premise of cryotherapy is to cool injured tissue; however, there is much confusion around how much cooling is adequate, and how this can be achieved clinically. Objectives: Our objective was to review recent literature to determine the rate and magnitude of tissue temperature reduction with cryotherapy. Values were compared with current recommended threshold temperatures deemed necessary for optimal cold induced analgesia (skin temperature
