Cryotherapy is an excellent way to help relieve muscle spasms or to soothe aches and pains. It is well known to help numb or painful areas, as well as provide relief to affected soft tissues. Cryotherapy consists of applying cold compresses onto the skin to effectively reduce the temperature of the skin while also constricting the blood vessels in the area.
If you are suffering from a muscle spasm or are suffering from a soft tissue injury, cryotherapy is an excellent way to help reduce swelling and further injury in the early stages of your healing process. Two other benefits to cryotherapy are that it is rather inexpensive, and is also something that can be done at home as well as in the office.
