Spot Cryo is a painless treatment given via a controlled beam of vaporized, hyper cooled liquid nitrogen to target specific areas of pain and inflammation-both from chronic and acute injuries. Most commonly treated are ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, shoulders, neck, etc. Spot Cryo sessions last from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the area being treated and the results are immediate. This treatment is also widely used by chronic headache suffers to relieve the pain of current migraine, stress and tension headaches as well as from a preventive standpoint to decrease the occurrences. Clients experience almost immediate pain relief as this treatment activates vasoconstriction- decreasing blood flow to the area.
Studies have proven that spot cryo treatments increase blood flow by up to four times greater than the normal flow. This additional blood flow brings with it the accelerated healing components of oxygen and nutrients to joints, cartilage and tendons.
Although it is most commonly used to treat swelling and inflammation from injuries (both chronic and acute), decrease downtime from a tough workout, or reduce post-surgical recovery time; other reasons to utilize SpotCryo include:
