This cold air is applied to injured parts of the to alleviate pain and speed up recovery after injuries. Localized cryotherapy is also utilized in other applications such as beautification.

  • Dry Needling – Treats musculoskeletal and neuromuscular pain by releasing trigger points. When dry needling is applied to an affected muscle or trigger point, it can decrease muscle tightness, increase blood flow and reduce pain. The needles remain in your muscle for a short period of time — between 10 seconds and 10 minutes. Dry needling usually is paired with exercise and other physical therapy techniques to prevent trigger points from reoccurring.

  • Cupping – Also called suction cup therapy, cupping uses suction to draw blood to or away from painful areas of your body.

  • Graston – Which is a brand name for IASTM, or Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, employs targeted techniques and stainless-steel instruments to treat soft tissue injuries. These instruments enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation when the goal is restoring range of motion, eliminating pain, and restoring normal motion.
