More benefit of cold, heat and compression through customization

Each athlete is different. Whether we talk about a professional, elite athlete or a passionate, recreational athlete, key is to optimize as much aspects as possible in order to become successful during training or competition. Therefore customizing the training approach for each specific athlete is essential. Unfortunately injuries, tiredness and general pains appear along the way as well, keeping an athlete away from performing at their best. ProCcare believes that in order to take care of athletes more accurately, the care approach should be customized as well.
Applying cold, heat or compression is the most used way in sports to cope with injuries, tiredness and pain. Literature proved that certain temperature thresholds should be used and that a more continued approach could provide advantageous effects. Also the impact of several personal characteristics, like local adipose tissue, are determining the outcome and use. With combining our own clinical expertise, the integrated expertise of our close partners and the most recent evidence concerning cold, heat and compression, we created the ProCcare approach.
