Provides immediate relief and avoids the use of anti inflammatories
Hyperbaric gaseous cryotherapy is a therapeutic innovation compared to conventional cryotherapy, which uses ice, aerosols or aerotherapy. It can be considered as an adjuvant or add-on therapy, while neurocryostimulation is a shock treatment and an alternative to taking drugs.
Neurocryostimulation quickly and effectively treats both acute and chronic pain..
What is neurocryostimulation?
It is a painless neurological therapy that uses extremely cold compressed air produced using medical-grade carbon dioxide.
The technique involves applying a jet of medical-grade carbon dioxide to the painful area for a pre-determined length of time. Since medical-grade carbon dioxide is bacteriostatic, the procedure involves no risk of infection.
What are the physiological effects?
- Analgesic: provides immediate pain relief;
- Vasomotor: promotes and activates blood circulation;
- Anti-inflammatory: decompresses the nerve roots, decreasing edema, redness, etc.
- Muscle relaxant: relaxes the muscle fibres.
What are the contraindications?
- Allergic reaction to cold
- Skin sensitivity
- Raynaud’s syndrome
What conditions can be treated?
Tendinitis, bursitis, epicondylitis, muscle strain, joint sprains, lumbar sprains, plantar fasciitis, torticollis (wry neck), nerve pain, subluxations, sciatica, osteoarthritis.
