Localized Cryotherapy, targeted to a specific muscle area or spasm can be applied via a localized device for a twenty second to one minute period. Localized cold air treatments reach -25° to -40° F. This has been demonstrated to produce more beneficial results compared to normal fifteen-to-twenty minute localized icing. Cold air is deployed by an application hose enabling precision cooling to the affected area and the exact delivery of airflow dosage to the skin.
Unlike the whole-body chamber, our localized cryotherapy devices take in ambient room-temperature air and chills it before delivering it to the specific areas of the body undergoing application. An example of localized treatment would occur with a hamstring injury or elbow tendon pain.
Our localized cryotherapy devices are an evolution of the ice pack. Treatment times vary, but are generally under 1 minute. Using our devices, localized cryotherapy can quickly and effectively deliver treatment with precision to troubled areas. The option of localized cold treatment to a specific area of your body is available for a slight additional cost.
