Cryotherapy is a chiropractic service that is offered to patients who are experience joint and muscle spasms, and may need this specialized treatment style. Apple Valley residents who are afflicted with spasms, or are experiencing muscle inflammation, might be interested in talking with Doctor of Chiropractic Dr. Parastou Ilbeigi, DC, of the Chiropractic Institute of High Desert, about having cryotherapy treatments performed.
Cryotherapy comes from the Greek word cryo, meaning cold and therapy, meaning cure. Essentially, cold treatments are used to help relieve the discomfort that patients are feeling, largely due to inflammation or because of muscle spasms. This technique has long been known for getting successful results, as it has been being used hundreds of years to treat these issues.
Athletes and those recovering from injuries often find that it is best to use cryotherapy and heat therapy in tandem in order to get the best results. There is a variety of ways that cryotherapy is performed, but most commonly a probe is inserted into the area that is causing discomfort. The temperature of the probe is then lowered in order to freeze the nerve ending, with the ultimate goal being to relieve any pain or discomfort the patient is experiencing. It is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat nerves that have become irritated and causing pain to the patient.
There are many goals with this procedure, not only does the doctor hope to reduce inflammation and pain, but also the doctor hopes to decrease cell metabolism while increasing cellular survival rates. Patients who are interested in this procedure should take the time to set up a consultation with Dr. Parastou Ilbeigi, DC, to decide if this highly-specialized procedure is the right course of action for them. In addition to deciding if cryotherapy is the right option, Dr. Parastou Ilbeigi, DC, will also discuss other options the patient might have during the consultation appointment. She specializes in paying individual attention to each patient to ensure that a custom plan is developed that addresses each individual patient’s concerns and afflictions.
