Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is based on surface cooling and uses low temperatures to reduce tissue temperature. Cryotherapy incorporates the use of a continuously cooled stream of air with a constant temperature range, which results in a range of thermoregulatory effects that are desirable for various indications,
including acute and chronic pain as well as rheumatism.

Here are some of the physiological effects of cryotherapy:

  • Influence on sensory nerves
  • Reduction in nerve conduction
  • Immediate vasoconstrictive effect
