The Types of Cryotherapy – Let’s Explore, Shall We?
Yes, there are various types of cryotherapy. Did you know utilizing an ice pack on an injury is a type of cryotherapy?
Ice baths and cold water submersion are also considered forms of cryo – but that’s not all.
In the medical field, procedures that require liquid nitrogen, or extremely low temperatures, are often referred to as cryotherapy or cryosurgery. Ever have a water removed at the dermatologist? You have experienced cryotherapy!
Additionally, there are more “modern” versions of cryotherapy including whole body cryotherapy, localized cryotherapy, and cryotherapy facials – these types of cryo typically require nitrogen vapor to hyper-cool the body or other targeted areas.
Technically speaking, any type of “therapy” that requires the use of extremely cold temperatures can be considered cryotherapy – so you’ve most likely done cryotherapy at least once or twice in your life!
