cryotherapyQ: What is Cryotherapy?

A: Cryotherapy is a term that describes the application of ice, cold packs, & ice massage to reduce the temperature of tissues directly on or below the surface of the skin.


Q: How does Cryotherapy work?

A: Surface cooling constricts blood vessels, numbs painful areas, and help relax muscle spasms. Cold temperatures reduce nerve transmission of painful symptoms and provide temporary relief.


Q: What does Cryotherapy feel like?

A: Ice is most often used to manage acute injuries or recent eruptions of chronic conditions. Cooling affected tissues is effective in reducing and preventing posttraumatic swelling. Local cooling should be applied several times a day during the initial stages of an injury. Each treatment time should NEVER exceed 20 minutes and ice or cold packs should never be applied directly to the skin.


Q: Why is Cryotherapy used in our office?

A: Cryotherapy is an effective way to reduce local swelling of inflamed tissues. Unlike oral or injected anti-inflammatory drugs that have the potential for harmful side effects, Cryotherapy is extremely safe and can be utilized in home care applications.

When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest.
