Subzero Cryotherapy For Orthopedic Pain

The subzero cryotherapy machine utilizes pressurized CO2 gas to target a specific area of the body, inducing “thermal shock.” This abrupt temperature decrease triggers the body’s healing response, leading to muscle relaxation, increased blood and nutrient circulation, and pain reduction. Witness the remarkable speed at which cryotherapy treatment can alleviate pain and expedite your recovery!

Principal Effects of Cryotherapy

Muscle Relaxation: Alleviates muscle spasms and enhances pain relief and healing by slowing down nerve activity.

Anti-inflammatory: Lowers the temperature and metabolic rate of injured tissue, causing blood vessels to constrict, thereby limiting blood flow and reducing edema.

Analgesic: Slows down nerve signal transmission, reducing the transmission of pain impulses.

Vasomotor: The Subzero encourages healthy blood flow and may mitigate detrimental blood vessel constriction.

Potential Benefits

Pain Relief: Cold therapy is thought to help alleviate pain by numbing the affected area and reducing nerve activity. It may be particularly effective for acute injuries, such as sprains, strains, or contusions, by helping to manage inflammation and associated pain.

Reduced Inflammation: Cryotherapy can help constrict blood vessels and decrease blood flow to the affected area, leading to a reduction in inflammation. This can be beneficial for conditions characterized by inflammation, such as arthritis or tendonitis.

Muscle Spasm Reduction: Cold therapy may help decrease muscle spasms by slowing down nerve impulses. This can be especially useful for conditions involving muscle tightness or spasms.

Accelerated Recovery after Exercise: Athletes often use cryotherapy to speed up recovery after intense physical activity. Cold treatments may help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation, allowing individuals to recover more quickly between workouts.

Joint Pain Relief: Cryotherapy may be beneficial for managing joint pain associated with conditions like osteoarthritis. Cold therapy can help reduce swelling and discomfort in the joints.

Improved Joint Function: By reducing inflammation and pain, cryotherapy may contribute to improved joint function. This could be particularly relevant for individuals with conditions affecting joint mobility.

Localized Treatment: Cryotherapy allows for targeted and localized treatment. This is beneficial for focusing the therapeutic effects on specific areas of the body, making it easier to address the source of orthopedic pain.

Non-Invasive and Low-Risk: Compared to some other forms of pain management, cryotherapy is non-invasive and generally considered safe. It doesn’t involve the use of medications and may be a well-tolerated option for individuals who cannot or prefer not to take certain drugs.

It’s important to note that while cryotherapy can be a useful adjunct to orthopedic pain management, it may not be suitable for everyone or for all types of conditions. Individuals should consult with one of our healthcare providers before starting any new treatment, and the specific application and duration of cryotherapy should be determined based on individual needs and the guidance of the healthcare professional.
