5: Countercurrent heat exchange between warm arterial blood and cooler incoming venous blood. As has already been mentioned, prolonged intermittent cryotherapy is superior to a single cold application. This type of treatment protocol sustains the desired effects of cold while minimizing potential negative effects. As well, the cold applications can be removed before activation of the hunting response takes place, thereby avoiding its vasodilation (derivation) effects. 48 A longer protocol of intermittent cryotherapy is superior to a single cold application.

Pain is usually due to substances released by injured cells and perhaps from the release of chemicals from an invading agent. If nerves are damaged, this may add to the pain, as may pressure from the increased fluid volume on the injured and neighbouring structures. • Altered function is caused by the pain and swelling, the injury itself, and the protective muscle guarding that almost inevitably occurs. In musculoskeletal structures this usually presents as reduced mobility. ): Swelling Heat Altered Function Redness Pain 42 Stages of Inflammation As the inflammatory response activates, progresses and subsides, the tissue is said to go through three stages: acute, sub-acute, and chronic.

Sub-acute inflammation is the regenerating stage in which healing and repair are initiated. Edema and hyperemia begin to diminish and any bruising starts to change colour and resolve. Local range of motion begins to increase, but there may continue to be pain, and the tissue remains fragile. Chronic inflammation is the scar tissue and healing stage. In this phase there are few visible signs of inflammation at the site – perhaps some cool edema and point tenderness – and scar tissue becomes increasingly effective in securing the injured tissue.
