THE BENEFITS & SCIENCE BEHIND CRYOTHERAPY

Faster healing times, anti inflammatory and pain relief are the main three benefits of cryotherapy

Faster Healing Time / Speed up Recovery: During cryotherapy your blood vessels on the treated area will narrow which we call vasoconstriction, 1 hour post cryotherapy treatment your blood vessels will start to enlarge to 4x the normal size - this we call vasodilation. Having created a temporary larger blood vessel, we allow much more oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area, therefore increasing healing and recovery times.

Pain relief: During a cryotherapy treatment, the body slows down the nerve signal transmissions and releases a neurotransmitter that reduces pain sensitivity. 

Anti inflammatoryAfter an injury, inflammation is a common occurrence. It is caused by oedema build-up and an increase in the number of white blood cells in the affected area. Exposure to extremely cold temperatures with cryotherapy triggers anti-inflammatory norepinephrine which reduces swelling and relieves pain.

Cryotherapy blocks the inflammatory response by reducing the number of inflammatory mediators such as inflammatory cytokines. In cases like rheumatoid arthritis, where the synovial membrane is inflamed and joint cartilage and bone are progressively destroyed, the inflammatory process is essentially mediated by the production of cytokines. Since they work as a catalyst of joint destruction - Cryotherapy helps to fight these molecules.

MAINTENANCE TREATMENTS
BASED ON YOUR SPORTS

During sport, your tendons and joints take the most load. With conditions such as "Tennis elbow", "Golfers elbow", "Runners Knee" it is important we look after our joints and tendons if we plan to continue the sports we love.

We have put together a sports specific cryotherapy treatment plan depending on the sports you do.

Tailoring treatment based on your sport is key, as each sport will overload specific tendons and joints differently. Whether it be treating an already present injury or preventing tendon and joint inflammation, our tailored sports specific cryotherapy plan will get you back to your sport faster or keep you doing the sport you love for longer.
