At the Full Body Rejuvenation Center, serving Lithonia and the surrounding area, we heal injuries and help manage pain through natural treatments. Our treatments focus on healing rather than masking the problem, so our patients find a long-term solution for their problems. One treatment we offer is cryotherapy, which utilizes a probe that targets the area you’re experiencing pain.
Definition of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is a treatment that relieves pain by freezing the injured nerve. It treats localized pain and discomfort. Additionally, it helps to reduce the occurrence of muscle spasms. The treatment consists of inserting a probe into the tissue surrounding the affected nerve. When the probe is inserted, the temperature of the probe reduces and freezes the nerve. Basically, the cold temperature deactivates the sensitivity in the nerve. We can conduct the treatment in our office, so there’s no need to commute to a specialized facility for cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy treats nerve issues such as pinched nerves and neuromas. The treatment constricts the blood vessels, which decreases the amount of inflammation. It can be used to reduce pain in people who have sports injuries, so they can resume daily activities and even resume playing sports once again. The healing time of the injury is accelerated. It may even speed the healing time up for those who are recovering from surgery. In addition to treating nerve conditions and injuries, cryotherapy may help manage pain in those who have multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Side Effects of Cryotherapy
Generally, cryotherapy is a safe procedure that has minimal side effects. Some people may feel an unusual sensation from the cold temperature. In some cases, it causes numbness or tingling in the treated area. It may also cause redness or irritation. These side effects tend to only last for a short time.
