Cryotherapy, also known as cold therapy or ice treatment, can be very beneficial in helping you to reap the full benefits of your physiotherapy treatments!

The use of ice and cold in physiotherapy treatments can be administered in a number of ways. Depending on the location of the targeted area as well as the intended goal of the cryotherapy treatment, your physiotherapist will determine the optimal manner of application to help you through your pain and recovery.



Cold therapy is an effective aspect of treatment for a variety of problems and afflictions. Whether you suffer from inflammation or simply would benefit from its pain-reducing:

  • Recent injury
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Tendinitis or acute inflammation
  • Muscle spasms
  • Limited range of motion
  • Localised pain
  • Edematous conditions

If you’re seeking relief and a path to recovery, cryotherapy may be suggested by your physiotherapist. Cryotherapy uses ice and cold temperatures to lower the temperature of the skin and soft tissues, which then leads to decreased blood flow in the affected areas. The lack of blood flow provides the following benefits:

  • Reduced swelling is one of the many benefits of reduced blood flow to a particular area. When blood flow is reduced, it can help to prevent and manage swelling. This is a valuable benefit for many people who suffer from conditions that cause swelling.
  • Reduced inflammation is one of the many benefits of reduced circulation in the area. By decreasing circulation, inflammation is reduced, providing relief for those suffering from conditions like arthritis.
  • Prevention of hypoxic damage is something that we take very seriously. Narrowing the blood vessels helps to reduce the need for oxygen in the tissues, which can help to prevent serious damage.

Cold treatment is an effective way to reduce blood flow and minimise damage to the surrounding tissues. It is also a useful technique for managing pain and providing relief to injured parts of the body. By applying cold to the affected area, you can help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain.

  • Accelerated Soft Tissue Healing
  • Whole body cryotherapy is an excellent way to stimulate circulation and bring healing agents like oxygen and nutrients to your cells. This therapy can be very helpful for people who suffer from chronic pain or inflammation.

I had been dealing with chronic neck pain for 6 years before I decided to visit Dr. K.K. Kant. I'm so glad I did because he not only cured me within 15 days, but he was also an amazing doctor and human being throughout the entire process. His dry needling and cupping therapy were extremely effective and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking treatment for similar issues.

I found the best physiotherapist in Dr Kant sir. I had severe back pain since 2011 and a friend told me about this clinic and the doctor. The result was unbelievable in just one week. The dry needling and cupping therapy he does is magic. I strongly recommend him if you have pain anywhere in your body.
