In a 5-10 minute session of Local Cryotherapy, a stream of nitrogen vapor is directed onto the affected body part creating a powerfully beneficial response.
Drastically Improve Injury and Exercise Recovery Time
While whole body cryotherapy is applied to the entire body, localized cryotherapy focuses on the specific areas. Local cryotherapy is used to target localized areas that are in pain or inflamed to cold temperatures between -240°F to -256°F for about 5 - 10 minutes per location.
The blood vessels constrict, immediately reducing pain and inflammation, as well as swelling in the affected area, all leading to a shorter recovery time. A Local Cryotherapy session has benefits that exceed hours of traditional icing. Almost any part of the body can be treated. Some of the most common areas include the neck, lower back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and heel for plantar fasciitis. Targeted Cryotherapy can also be used to reduce the appearance of scars.
Combine With WholeBody Cryotherapy For Maximum Benefits
Local cryotherapy has been used for cellulite reduction, reducing inflammation, athletic recovery for specific problem areas, and relieving many forms of pains from, for example, a surgery. While Wholebody Cryotherapy treatments are excellent at relieving general inflammation, some parts of the body may require more attention than the others due to acute pain. This is where local or spot cryotherapy comes into play to treat the most affected areas.
A 5-10 minute session is equivalent to approximately 8-10 hours of icing. To maximize the benefits it is highly recommended to combine your local cryo session with a whole body session prior. We've had awesome results with all kinds of ailments from bone spurs, sciatica, broken legs, plantar fasciitis, and torn muscles to name a few.
