Local Cryotherapy

Local Cryotherapy

Local Cryotherapy treatments are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in targeted areas. Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which triggers an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response in the body, local cryotherapy is comparable to "icing", although much more powerful and efficient based on our experience. This treatment is frequently combined with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the "inside out" as well as from the "outside in". As temperatures as low as -240 degrees F can be reached by this device, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 5-10 minutes, with a benefit exceeding that of hours of icing.
