Cold sucks. Nothing about it is comfortable, and there is no reason that we need to subject ourselves to its grasp. Right?... Wrong.
Below are links to 3 separate posts from a company named Kion. They are a high-quality supplement and wellness brand. They have done a phenomenal job of pulling together the most comprehensive yet readable discussion surrounding the cold that I have yet to read.
Not only do they make the case for cold therapy, but they also spend time going over the science, as well as misconceptions and the validity of certain claims surrounding cold therapy.
Go ahead, give these articles a read. They will give you a great 360 degree understanding of the nuts and bolts of cold therapy.
