In a five to ten-minute session of Localized Cryotherapy a pressurized stream of nitrogen vapor is directed onto the affected body part creating a powerful icing response.
A Localized Cryotherapy session lasting only 5 to 10 minutes has benefits that exceed hours of traditional icing. The blood vessels constrict, immediately decreasing inflammation and swelling in the affected area by rapidly flushing the tissue of fluid and waste.
As the body begins to warm, the area is flooded with regenerative blood flow. This allows for a greater range of motion in the targeted area as well. Localized cryotherapy can be applied directly to areas of the shingles rash in order to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area. Localized cryotherapy can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Almost any part of the body can be treated externally with the localized cryotherapy treatment. Some of the most common treated areas include the neck, upper back, lower back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and heel for plantar fasciitis.
Localized Cryotherapy is frequently paired with Whole Body Cryotherapy to relieve problem areas from both the “outside-in” as well as the “inside-out.”*
