Hand in an ice bucket

3. Ice treatment
ICE treatment reduces inflammation to the joints and muscles. Ice treatment incurs a response within the body known as vascular constriction, where upon contact with the body the blood vessels (arteries, veins and capillaries) all narrow. This process helps to send oxygenated blood to the area of the body being treated, therefore improving recovery and the ability for repeat performance. Ice baths and localised ice application should be common practice for boxers, however the Game Ready is the gold standard machine available.
