Local Cryotherapy targets specific areas of the body that are inflamed and in pain. The CryoWand is an excellent tool for treating specific areas of the body that are overworked, overused, worn out, and inflamed. Cryotherapy combats this response by constricting the blood vessels, thus decreasing inflammation. Whether pain or inflammation is keeping you from your favorite activity or hobby, or if you are simply finding yourself less active and more irritable due to chronic, debilitating pain and inflammation, then Local Cryotherapy is your answer.
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.
Clients frequently combine this treatment with Whole Body Cryotherapy, to treat problem areas both from the “inside out” as well as from the “outside in.” Because temperatures as low as -240 degrees Fahrenheit can be reached by our devices, a local area treatment only needs to be conducted for about 3-5 minutes, with a benefit exceeding that of hours of icing.
