Cryotherapy Q&A

What is cryotherapy?


Cryotherapy is the use of very cold temperatures as low as minus-200°F to minus-300°F as a treatment. This form of therapy is believed to soothe aches and pains, minimize inflammation, reduce swelling, and stimulate healing of injuries. 


Cryotherapy is a 100% natural treatment that uses only cold air, so it’s completely noninvasive. It’s a safe therapy when performed under the expert supervision of the NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward team. 


Are there different types of cryotherapy?


There are two main types:


Spot cryotherapy


This type of therapy targets specific areas in the body with severe inflammation, which is a direct cause of pain. Spot cryotherapy works by shrinking the blood vessels in the painful area. This reduces inflammation and pain. 


Spot cryotherapy is ideal for small or medium-size areas, like the knees, back, shoulders, and neck. Spot cryotherapy effectively treats headaches, sprains, and other acute injuries. 


Whole-body cryotherapy


Whole-body cryotherapy has numerous health benefits. It reduces inflammation and also increases oxygen levels in the blood and cells throughout your body. 


As with spot cryotherapy, whole-body cryotherapy can reduce pain. It also triggers your body’s natural feel-good chemicals (endorphins) to help you feel better. 


Whole body cryotherapy is good for joint pain, muscle aches, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, degenerative joint and spine disease, and many other conditions. It may even help lift the mood, which is always helpful when you’re working through a period of recovery. 


Does cryotherapy work well with other treatments?


Yes, cryotherapy is an all-natural treatment that integrates well with many other leading-edge therapies. The NeuroSpinal Institute of Broward team uses multifaceted treatment plans to fully address all of your needs and give you a total recovery. 


They use a functional medicine approach, which pinpoints and treats the root cause of injury and pain. 


Some of the other treatment options are:

  • Nonsurgical spinal decompression
  • Vibration therapy
  • Normatec compression therapy
  • ESCAPE-knee protocol for arthritis
  • Shockwave therapy
  • Durable medical equipment (DME)
  • Intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Restorative medicine injections, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  • Alternative medicine, like cellular injections

With so many leading-edge treatments available, the team can easily create the best healing strategy for you. If you have chronic pain or have an injury, cryotherapy can be a great addition to your treatment.
