Cryostimulation, as a method of stimulating the body´s own neuroreflexive responses to combat pain and is a todays technique of choice fort he daily treatments of accute or chronic pain.
Neuroreflex stimulation - using the body´s own resources to combat pain
Cryofos is using an intense cold therapyby hyperbaric medical Co2-gas. From its pressurized, liquid form in the cylinder, the gas streams out when the valve is opened to emerge from the nozzle of treatment gun as fine spray, which hits the skin at a temperature of -78°C and a pressure of 1-2 bars lowering the skin temperature to between 4°C and 2°C within just 30 seconds.
This abrupt temperature change is called a thermal shock and it generates a neuroreflexive response in the body which ultimately results in an increase of blood flow in the treated area, whilst reducing the contractions of pro-inflammatory mediators ( for example : prostaglandins and histamines). In addition, the thermal shock combined with the pressure of the gas has an effect that is similar to a manual lymphatic drainage.
By this method oedems, haematomas and local inflammations will be reduced much faster than by already known therapies.
