Mechanism of Cryotherapy
Health professionals have generally accepted the use of cryotherapy to relieve pain and inflammation from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and sports-related injuries. The benefits of cryotherapy stem from the rapid and sharp drop in skin surface temperature.
The extremely cold environment triggers the body’s powerful protective mechanisms, sending the blood from the skin surface, muscles, and surrounding joint space to the core, where it is restricted to the cardiovascular system and vital organs in a continuous loop. This shorter loop allows the core temperature to stay intact. It also enhances blood flow, which in turn supplies the organs with elevated levels of oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes.
When the user exits the cryo sauna, the body immediately begins vasodilation, returning the blood to the skin’s surface, improving blood supply and flushing out toxins. Participants who have used cryotherapy report boosted energy levels, cellular regeneration, clearer and more radiant skin, improved collagen production, and anti-inflammatory effects that can help relieve psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema.
Furthermore, scientific studies have shown cryotherapy can decrease pain and swelling, diminish inflammation, and reduce muscle spasms and tension.
Cryotherapy can be particularly useful for chiropractors. It can lead to a decrease in muscle tension, which translates to more effective adjustments, physiotherapy, and massage after just a single session. It is also an effective method for treating acute musculoskeletal injuries and, among chiropractic practitioners who have cryotherapy equipment, is the most- used passive adjunct therapy.
As cryotherapy is inexpensive to administer (typically $4 to $5 per three-minute session), cryotherapy can be an economically smart addition to any practice. Because of treatments only last one to three minutes, most offices use them as an add-on to other services that they offer.
A cryotherapy session must be administered by a trained operator, but this doesn’t have to be the doctor.
Many colleges and high school sports teams either use ice baths or they caravan in groups of 10 to 15 to a local cryotherapy location for a quick treatment after practice. If your practice is looking for that next boost in revenue, look into cryotherapy as an option—it could be the “cool” modality you’ve been looking for.
