Abstract

The Effect of Two Cooling Modalities on Knee Joint Position Sense

Within the clinical setting, cooling prior to rehabilitation is being used in the treatment of athletic injuries. This helps to decrease pain and open neural pathways. However, there are controversial results on whether this practice may increase injury risk by decreasing proprioception. The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of two cooling modalities on joint position sense and skin sensation at the knee.
