Cryotherapy is a relatively new addition to our practice, and it can have many benefits including weight loss, faster muscle recovery, and improved circulation. One of the best uses of cryotherapy is as an additional service when getting a chiropractic adjustment.
There are several things that cryotherapy does that are beneficial after a chiropractic treatment, including:
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Relaxes muscles
- Decreases inflammation
- Decreases swelling
- Boosts musculoskeletal recovery
As you can see, the benefits of cryotherapy are very complimentary to a chiropractic adjustment. If you are seeing a chiropractor due to misalignment of your spine, cryotherapy could be even more beneficial. When your spine is out of alignment for a long period of time, your muscles become tense and the entire back can become inflamed and swollen. This can make adjustments difficult and painful.
Cryotherapy counteracts these treatments and helps your body relax and recover, making it easier to get back to your busy life.
But what is cryotherapy? In our Elite Recovery Room we have cryotherapy chambers in which you can immerse yourself, except your head. The cryotherapy chamber reaches temperatures of about -220 degrees. This may seem like an extreme that your body wouldn’t be able to handle, but in reality you are only in the chamber for a few minutes. This is completely safe, and it will immediately provide relief.
If you are interested in trying our cryotherapy services after your chiropractic adjustment, be sure to mention it when you schedule your appointment. We will make sure to allow you time in our Elite Recovery Room after your adjustment.
