Localised cryotherapy can be used to target specific areas by constricting blood vessels, slowing inflammation immediately to the affected area thereby reducing swelling and pain
Unlike Whole Body Cryotherapy, which stimulates cold receptors all over the body in order to trigger an internal systemic anti-inflammatory response, local cryotherapy focuses on the localised area leading to pro-inflammatory cytokines being decreased and anti-inflammatory cytokines being increased. This causes a powerful anti-inflammatory response on the local area being treated. It also drastically reduces swelling, muscle relaxation and pain.
There are many reasons to use this treatment
Since giving birth to my two beautiful children, I've always had back issues. My back flares up every now and again, once inflamed it can take weeks for the pain to go away... I'm astounded by localised cryotherapy because inflammation including pain is reduced instantly or at the very least the following day
