Local cryotherapy for pain management is performed on an area or body part that has pain and or inflammation for a period of 6-10 minutes.
During the treatment you will lay down on a treatment table and the cryotherapy will be applied via a wand apparatus that is attached to a smaller liquid nitrogen tank to deliver the cooled air directly to the area of concern.
Local cryotherapy freezes the chemical transmitters of pain in the nervous system called prostaglandins while reducing inflammation. This is an all natural and proven effective modality for pain management.
