Cryotherapy is considered an excellent form of physical therapy. It’s a treatment that is widely and routinely applied in sports medicine for the treatment of both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries in athletes, as well as in the treatment of illnesses and disabilities.
Whilst Cryotherapy provides the patient with a rush of oxygenated blood, exposure to sub-zero liquid nitrogen will also stimulate and enhance the body’s natural responses to colder temperatures. The treatment will:
- Reduce muscle spasticity, oedema (swelling), inflammation and muscle tension
- Constrict your blood vessels, to reduce bleeding
- Reduce your metabolic rate, allowing for a quicker recovery from the injury
- Restore movement and function
- Promote healing
This non-invasive, pain-free procedure is perfect for people who are seeking to prevent injury or illness. Not only will cryotherapy promote faster muscle recovery from injury, but you’ll also develop stronger muscular resistance to fatigue, and enhance the muscles’ ability to regenerate.
With this in mind, what better way to aid your recovery and combat your injury, than by embracing the healing powers of Cryotherapy?
