After the contact, explanation of the study procedures and acceptance of the participants, the data collection will be started and performed in the teaching laboratory of the Physiotherapy course of the State University of Londrina.
Initially, the demographic data of the sample (age, height, weight, limb and time of pain) and signature of the consent term will be collected.
After this step, the participants should point to the Visual Analogue Scale (EVA) and the Patellofemoral Disorders Scale (AKPS). Before performing the cryotherapy technique, the basal skin temperature in the anterior region of the knee will be recorded by means of a thermographic camera, and the participants will be submitted to five sets of the sit and stand test in 30 ', with rest of one minute between them. They will then re-signal the EVA and the skin temperature will be retained by the camera. Finally, they will undergo the application of cryotherapy according to the category which has been "randomized".
The two different intervention techniques will be:
- Ice pack group (CPG): where the participant will have a plastic bag containing 500 grams of crushed ice over the anterior region of the knee, and lie flat with the lower limb extended and supported on the ground for 20 minutes;
- Group Cryotherapy + Compression by Game Ready® (CCGR): where the participant will have the knee joint wrapped and compressed by the equipment where temperature, compression and time will be controlled, maximum compression, for 20 minutes by the equipment itself; lie in the same manner as for the other intervention.
Immediately thereafter, the EVA will be applied and the skin surface temperature recorded in the knee region, as well as 10, 20, 30 and 60 minutes thereafter.

Experimental: Game Ready group
the participants performed cryotherapy by compression with Game Ready
Other: Game Ready
the participants remained for 20 minutes with intermittent compression therapy + cryotherapy
Experimental: Ice pack
the participants performed cryotherapy for ice pack
Other: Ice pack
the participants remained for 20 minutes with cryotherapy with ice pack
- Pain [ Time Frame: preheating ]measurement pain by analogue visual scale (Score zero to ten, when zero is painless and 10 is maximum pain)
- Pain [ Time Frame: pre-intervention ]measurement pain by analogue visual scale (Score zero to ten, when zero is painless and 10 is maximum pain)
- Pain [ Time Frame: immediately post-intervention ]measurement pain by analogue visual scale (Score zero to ten, when zero is painless and 10 is maximum pain)
- Pain [ Time Frame: up to 60 minutes ]
