CRYOTHERAPY


Cryotherapy

WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?

Cryotherapy is the application of ice, cold towels, ice massage or compresses with the intent of reducing temperatures of the tissue directly on or below the skin’s surface.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Surface cooling constricts blood vessels, numbs painful areas, and helps relax muscle spasms. Cold temperatures help reduce some painful symptoms and help provide temporary relief.

WHAT DOES CRYOTHERAPY FEEL LIKE?

Ice is most often used to manage acute injuries or recent eruptions of chronic conditions. Cooling affected tissues is effective in reducing and preventing post-traumatic swelling. Local cooling should be applied several times a day during the initial stages of an injury; however this application should last no longer than 15 minutes.

WHY IS CRYOTHERAPY USED?

Cryotherapy is inexpensive, readily available and an easy way to reduce local swelling of the inflamed tissues.

PATIENT BENEFITS

  • Helps reduce swelling and inflammation
  • Numbs affected area to reduce pain
  • Reduces muscle spasms
  • Inexpensive and can be self-applied

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS
“I was very impressed with their professional personality of each individual. I would recommend this practice to all my taxi customers"

“The staff and doctors are very conscious of the needs of their patients. I cannot thank them enough. If it weren’t for them I probably would have needed surgery. I thank them for giving me back my life. Now I care for kids, not them caring for me.”
