Experiencing pain can be debilitating and severely impact your lifestyle from working, leisure activity and enjoying family time. Localised cryotherapy may help reduce your pain by targeting the inflammation and swelling in specific areas through cryogenically cooled air penetrating into the layers of skin tissue and increasing blood circulation. By locally stimulating the cold receptors, blood vessels are constricted, slowing inflammation and reducing swelling and pain.
Cryotherapy also has a natural pain relief effect on your body. The stimulation of tiny neurochemicals called endorphins have a positive effect on the body’s pain and energy levels, resulting in a feeling of well-being. The benefit of these effects may also include alleviating depression, reducing stress and anxiety and improving sleep.
