Worried About Side Effects?
Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is tolerated by the body to an appreciable level. Its side effects/risks are minimal – the blood pressure fluctuates up to 10 points systolically during cryotherapy, but this effect is reversed after the session end; peripheral circulation goes back to normal. There may also be allergic reactions to extreme cold (but this is rare), redness, and skin burns. Skin burns happen only if you expose the patients to the frigid cold for longer a longer period than recommended.
This method provides direct relief to the impacted area and doesn’t occupy as much space as the WBC. Another important benefit is that the pieces of cryotherapy equipment are more portable so that you can travel with it a patient as is usually done with sports chiropractic.
You can add cryotherapy to your practice and reap a lot of returns such as:
Pain relief. You’d be happy if you found a quick and easy way to relieve your patients of their ailments. You could offer them another level of recovery – something in between their regular sessions to relieve their pain and tension.
Diverse specialties. When you have diverse specialties, you stand out among other chiropractors and people outside your traditional patient demographics will be drawn to your business.
