Localised Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy based on short-term application of low temperatures to the affected area of the body.

Physiologically during this procedure, for the first few seconds, the blood vessels constrict causing a reduction in pain perception after which the vessels dilate increasing the blood flow in the tissue treated which leads to an increased activity of the metabolic processes and a reduction in muscle tension. Exposing the tissue to an extreme temperature triggers a systemic anti-inflammatory response.

Benefits of cryotherapy

  • Improved physical performance
  • Pain relief
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Faster muscle recovery
  • Improved blood circulation

Cryotherapy helps with:

  • Sports and fitness-related pain or short-term pain related to overuse of a specific muscle or joint
  • Chronic back, neck, shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and foot pain
  • Chronic pain related to systemic health issues like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis and Gouty diathesis


Cryogenic procedures are 100% safe, cause no side effects, and demonstrate outstanding results for musculoskeletal injuries and chronic conditions when used in conjunction with physiotherapy.
