"Intermittent cryotherapy of 3×10 min significantly decreases local Achilles tendon mid-portion capillary blood flow by 71%. Within 2 min of rewarming, tendon oxygen saturation is re-established following cryotherapy. Postcapillary venous filling pressures are reduced during cryotherapy, favoring capillary venous outflow of the healthy Achilles tendon."
