What is Cryotherapy?
We’re pleased to announce that we’re the only practice in the local area to use the state-of-the-art CRYO Science Arctic chamber. While most cryotherapy chambers will allow your head to stick out, this one encapsulates a full-body experience. This means that it will evenly distribute the cold temperatures from head to toe so you can enjoy a safer, more effective experience.
When you begin a cryotherapy session, you can expect to be exposed to liquid nitrogen. This liquid nitrogen will be compressed in a sauna and released as vapor in the air. To protect your extremities, we’ll encourage you to wear socks, slippers, hat or earmuffs and gloves. Your body will be exposed to extremely cold temperatures between -170 to -230 degrees Fahrenheit.
Most patients benefit from cryotherapy sessions 2-3 times a week. If you’re suffering from injury, inflammation, and/or pains, 4 to 5 times may make more sense. Since cryotherapy can help you find relief from pain, inflammation, migraines, mood disorders, and other problems, it comes with no downtime. You can resume work and your daily activities right after a session.
