What is Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is an innovative treatment where the body is exposed to temperatures from -140 to -180*C for three minutes only, to gain multiple health, fitness, weight loss, and beauty benefits.

Cryotherapy - also called cold therapy - has been used for many years to treat the after effects of a soft tissue musculoskeletal injury. If you've ever twisted your ankle or had to do post-op rehabilitation for a knee ligament repair, you may have been advised to follow the RICE (Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation) regimen.

Traditional ice application methods typically include use of an ice bucket (doesn't work on many joint injuries, such as the back or hip), wrapping the injury with a plastic bag filled with crushed ice, or using an ace wrap over the ice-filled bag to try and provide some compression along with the cryotherapy.

These methods are inconvenient, messy, irritating and hard to stick with over time. And when you don't stay with a regimen of cryotherapy and compression, you recover more slowly from your sports injury.

Fortunately for active sports lovers, technology advances have greatly improved cryotherapy systems to deliver more therapeutic benefits and therefore speed your healing and return to an active life.


What is Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy controls swelling. Following an injury, your body immediately triggers an inflammatory response - this means increased blood flow, edema build-up, and movement of leukocytes (white blood cells) to the soft tissue injury site.

Our white blood cells are important defenders of our body, resisting attacks by viruses or bacteria. However, they also can cause cellular injury and necrosis and promote swelling.

Cryotherapy systems are safe and non-invasive. Many studies have concluded that cold therapy is effective and harmless and has minimal complications. The main concern is keeping the temperature within a specific range, so that very low temperature treatments are avoided. Too-cold therapy can cause serious tissue side-effects, such as frostbite and nerve damage. That's why our system used in the Cryo-Health clinic that lets you pre-set the temperature of your cold therapy treatment is a good choice.


Cold Pressed Treatments Have Evolved From a Bag of ICE

Cryotherapy systems today go way beyond a bag of crushed ice or frozen peas. Advanced solutions to speed healing use an integrated cold therapy device that offers adjustable temperature control, to greatly improve surgery recovery, sports injuries our machine is a portable design so we can do therapy nearly anywhere, anytime.


Key Benefits of Using Cryotherapy After Sports Injuries

  • Decreased pain
  • Reduced swelling
  • Decreased muscle spasms
  • Reduced edema formation
  • Reduced metabolic activity and oxygen demand, improving tissue healing response
  • More efficient and rapid removal of heat from the injury site, therefore more effective temperature reduction
  • Reduced or eliminated need for pain medication post-injury, allowing improved focus on rehab needed to return to work and play
  • Enhanced lymphatic drainage, key to better healing
  • Increased blood flow and oxygen delivery to injury site, speeding recovery of damaged tissue
  • Improved surface contact of cold therapy to injury site, providing deeper and longer-lasting cooling effects
  • Quicker recovery from intense workouts or physical activity, eliminating downtime while sore tissues rebound

Surveys of patients who have used cryotherapy systems report excellent results

  • Over 90 percent say it helped them return to work or daily activities sooner
  • Over 94 percent say it reduced the amount of pain medication they took or allowed them to stop the meds sooner
  • Over 94 percent say it provided a superior post-op recovery than previous surgery using a different cold therapy system

Cryotherapy in Brief

  • Cryotherapy works in a variety of ways to help speed the healing process after a sports injury:
  • Reduces blood flow to the injured area, which helps to reduce swelling;
  • Acts as a pain-killer by numbing the affected area;
  • Reduces muscle spasms;
  • Decreases tissue damage by reducing metabolism, thus lessening the tissues need for oxygen and limiting secondary tissue injury caused by compromised circulation.
