Welcome back to Austin’s TexStar Chiropractic’s blog.

Today we’re going to cover an amazing service we provide at TexStar Chiropractic: “Cryotherapy”.
Cryotherapy is a modern therapy provided here at TexStar Chiropractic that utilizes cold temperatures to help a variety of medical conditions. This type of therapy has been found to be effective for pain relief, muscle relaxation, and improving circulation. In this blog, we’ll take a look at some of the potential benefits of cryotherapy and discuss how this form of therapy can help those suffering from a variety of medical conditions.
Below is a short-video depicting the application of Cryotherapy therapy performed by our lead technician, Ryan:
One of the most common uses of cryotherapy is for pain relief. This type of therapy relies on the properties of cold temperatures to help reduce inflammation and swelling, which can help to reduce pain. Additionally, the cold temperatures can help to reduce nerve sensitivity, providing both short-term and long-term relief.
Cryotherapy can also be used to help relax tense and stiff muscles. By utilizing cold temperatures, this type of therapy can help to reduce tension in the muscles and improve range of motion. This can help to reduce stiffness and make everyday activities easier.
Cryotherapy can also help to improve circulation. The cold temperatures help to stimulate the release of nitric oxide, which is a naturally occurring gas in the body that helps to open up blood vessels. This can help to improve blood flow and overall circulation throughout the body. As a result, those undergoing this type of therapy may experience an improvement in energy levels and an overall sense of well-being.
Cryotherapy can also help to reduce stress levels in those who are undergoing it. The cold temperatures help to stimulate the release of serotonin and dopamine, which are hormones in the body that are associated with happiness and relaxation. This can help to reduce anxiety levels and provide a sense of calm.
Overall, cryotherapy can provide a number of benefits to those suffering from a variety of medical conditions. The pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved circulation, and stress relief can help to reduce discomfort and improve overall well-being.
