LOCAL CRYOTHERAPY – WHAT IS IT?
Local Cryotherapy is the use of cold temperatures to treat injuries and pain in specific areas. It was first widely used in Germany in the 1980s to treat arthritic pain as well as other forms of chronic pain. As more people saw its benefits, the treatment’s popularity spread to other countries.
Cryotherapy is helpful in decreasing the level of post-traumatic pain and swelling, especially for those who take part in regular training sessions and are hindered with these types of problems.
Cryotherapy is being used to treat acute and chronic injuries especially in sports medicine. It provides a natural analgesic effect and a reduction in muscle tension and accelerates healing to the treated area.
LOCAL CRYOTHERAPY IS A GOOD SOLUTION FOR:
- Sports injury
- Surgery recovery
- Upper and lower back, knee, elbow and shoulder soreness
- Joint function improvement
- Reducing swelling
- Enhances sports performance
- Reduction of muscle tension
- Head ache
SUB ZERO RECOVERY – How does it work?
The quick application of a controlled -257 degree Fahrenheit LN2 vapor stream causes blood vessels to constrict. In response, the body delivers more blood to the area where the cold application is focused. Blood contains oxygen, enzymes and nutrients. When more blood is delivered to the area, it becomes oxygen enriched with enzymes and nutrients and recovery is accelerated. Cryotherapy can treat one or more specific areas of the body. The procedure is fast and painless. From day one, clients usually feel better due to the therapeutic nature of the cryo session.
