Local cryotherapy uses a directed stream of extremely cold nitrogen gas to treat injuries and relieve pain. The procedure was first widely used in Europe in the 1980s to treat arthritis and other types of chronic pain. As more people recognized its benefits, the treatment’s popularity spread to the United States and other countries.
Local cryotherapy is administered with a special wand-like device that targets painful areas of the body. A stream of liquid nitrogen gas causes superficial skin temperatures to drop rapidly, constricting the blood vessels of targeted tissues and shunting blood and fluids away from the region. After just a few minutes of local cryo’s freezing treatment, the body slowly warms the targeted tissues with fresh oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood, to promote the healing of painful and damaged tissues.
Local cryotherapy is an ideal treatment for anyone with pain and inflammation in specific regions of the body. You can also enjoy whole body cryotherapy to treat post-exercise muscle soreness, fatigue, sleep disorders and a variety of other conditions affecting the entire body.
Localized cryotherapy can be beneficial for treating multiple painful conditions and pain syndromes.
Anyone who suffers from chronic pain due to arthritis, injuries or illness can benefit from localized cryotherapy. Patients recovering from surgery on a knee, hip or shoulder joint often have cryotherapy treatments to alleviate pain and speed healing. Athletes use cryotherapy to recover from training, prevent injuries, and speed the healing process after an injury.
InVita Wellness offers both local and whole body cryotherapy (WBC), to meet the needs of our clients. Common areas for local cryotherapy treatment include:
If you have hypertension, a heart condition, liver or kidney disease or generally poor health, you may not be an ideal candidate for cryotherapy. Pregnant women should avoid cryotherapy. If you have a bleeding disorder, a tumor or other serious health conditions, you should discuss your condition with a cryotherapy specialist before seeking treatment.
Localized cryotherapy is often combined with whole body cryotherapy to heal specific areas of the body. The most commonly treated areas include the upper and lower back, shoulders, neck, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles and hips.
Prior to your localized cryotherapy treatment, you will need to disrobe enough to expose the treatment area. You will be provided with a coverup for privacy. Some patients prefer to shower before the procedure, but it is not essential
A cryotherapy wand only delivers cold nitrogen gas to the treatment area – it does not cool the whole body. The procedure is fast and painless, although you may experience a slight chill. Some people report a sudden mood boost that lasts for several hours, thanks to the release of endorphins in response to the sudden temperature drop.
Most patients feel relaxed during their local cryotherapy treatment. After the procedure, patients often feel better all over due to increased blood flow. Some report noticeably less pain after their first treatment. However, cryotherapy specialists recommend multiple treatments within a short period of time to achieve optimal results. The duration of ime between treatments depends on the severity and location of your pain or injury.
Our trained specialists work with every patient to develop a personalized treatment plan. We examine your health history, current health status and pain levels to determine the best plan of action. If your pain is widespread, we may recommend whole body cryotherapy instead of local cryo, or in addition to it.
If you are interested in the cosmetic benefits of localized cryotherapy, we offer CryoFacial. This concentrated treatment triggers the regeneration of collagen, to strengthen the skin’s matrix and promote skin elasticity. The rapid return of oxygen-rich blood after your treatment gives your skin a vibrant healthy glow.
