Cryotherapy is a great asset in treating muscle spasms. Applying this therapy to the affected soft tissue provides a cooling relief as well as numbing sensation. Cryotherapy is the application of cold compresses to the skin of the affected area, reducing the temperature of the skin and causing the underlying blood vessels to constrict.
For recent soft tissue injuries or muscle spasm, cryotherapy is the first choice of treatment. It is a great way to reduce swelling and prevent further injury in the first stages of the healing process. It is also cost effective and efficient since it can be performed at home or in the office.
