Anyone who has ever had a cold sore knows the power of freezing. Applying cold to an aching muscle, sensitive tooth, or injured area can also numb pain. It’s the same principle behind cryotherapy, which uses frigid temperatures to help relieve everything from muscle aches to arthritis and stimulate natural healing. We offer all-natural cryotherapy in Culver City and Van Nuys to catalyze your body’s innate healing processes and help you overcome chronic pain.
Fighting Pain with Cold
In addition to traditional chiropractic therapy, Dr. Rozenberg might recommend cryotherapy to stop acute and chronic pain. These treatments can be integrated into regular appointments and significantly reduce inflammation, swelling, muscle tension, and other factors related to your discomfort. If you’re suffering from constant tendonitis or another condition requiring chiropractic attention, get in touch with us today to learn more about cryotherapy from our Culver City and Van Nuys chiropractor and how it might help you find pain relief.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
You’ll be placed in a special chamber where your body will be completely engulfed in a special nitrogen gas that can drop to temperatures of -220 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll remain in the chamber for about 2 to 3 minutes. As your body’s temperature falls, blood will be sent from the skin surface, muscles, and surrounding joint space to your core as a protective measure. As a result, the blood will be restricted to traveling to your vital organs, ensuring they receive elevated oxygen levels and nutrients. Once you leave the chamber, blood will return to the skin’s surface. For more information on cryotherapy in Culver City and Van Nuys, please contact our office to schedule an appointment today!
Recovery After Cryotherapy
The most common side effect of cryotherapy in Culver City and Van Nuys is cold burn. The burn is caused by the freezing of the skin and typically resolves within a few minutes. Other side effects may include numbness, tingling, redness, and swelling. Most people recover from cryotherapy within 24 hours. However, some may experience side effects, such as tingling, that may last a few days. There is no downtime associated with cryotherapy. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
