This form of therapy focuses helping your body manage pain and promote healing through changes in the inflammatory response after injury. This system uses air cooled to -32 °C to prevent further cellular death following a traumatic injury like a sprain, strain or bruise. The first 24 hours are important to ensure any tissue damage is not exacerbated.
What are the benefits?
The use of Cryo Ice therapy has been suggested to help with a range of symptoms of injury. There is a wide research base of the benefits with patients reporting similar responses:
- Pain relief
- Anti-inflammatory effect
- Lowering of muscle tension
- Reduction of bruising/local blood loss
What to expect
Immediately after treatment, the positive effects can be observed in relation to pain sensation and mobility of joints. The temperature is not as low as it sounds, you'll typically feel a cold sensation but the therapist can manage the level of cold with the applicator. We are keen to ensure the level of cold you feel is always the right level for you.
