Heat Treatment/ Cryotherapy

Heat and cold treatments are used to alter blood flow, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and relax muscles before or after an injury. We may apply moist heat or dry heat, usually for 10-15 minutes at a time to your injury. We may apply an ice pack to areas of pain or inflammation, or may target a small, localized area with an ice massage.

The benefits of this are:

  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Improve muscle tone and contractibility
  • Decrease muscle spasms
  • Increase joint mobility
  • Accelerate healing process of a chronic injury/condition
