Pain Relief

Research has shown that cryotherapy is particularly useful in pain relief following surgery. According to Medscape, a study evaluated pain levels in two groups of post-surgical patients: those who received cryotherapy versus those who only used narcotic pain relievers. The morning after surgery, those who used cryotherapy reported an average pain level of 3.12 as compared to 4.86 for those who didn't.The discrepancies in the pain scores continued to increase as time elapsed after surgery. Plus, the group using cryotherapy was able to reduce their intake of narcotic pain relievers, lowering their risk of severe side effects. Cryotherapy treatment is available for anyone who would like an alternative choice to regular pain medication and would like to experience pain relief in a non-invasive way.
