What is Localized Cryotherapy

Cryostimulation is applied in sports medicine in the treatment of both acute and chronic injuries of soft tissue in athletes. A cryostimulation treatment provides the patient with a rush of oxygenated blood, a natural analgesic effect and a reduction in muscle tension in the treatment area. Post-treatment, the microcirculation in the treatment area provide muscles with increased rates of healing and recovery, and the natural anagesic effect and relaxation of muscles allow the patient to increase their exercise tolerance, as well as strengthen the muscles and joints to reduce the possibility of injury in the future.Attending cryostimulation treatments close together will not only help the patient to recover quicker but it is also the most effective way of maximising the healing effects of cyostimulation because the blood circulations and metabolic processes will remain higher for longer. Cryostimulation decreases the intensity of post-traumatic pain and edema, especially for those who take part in professional training sessions and are regularly confronted with these types of problem.
