Using Cryofos To Decrease Pain
We have been having some incredible results with Cryofos and if you’re currently experiencing pain, we know this can help. Please keep in mind Paragon Chiropractic is currently one of the only facilities that offer Cryofos and we want you to experience it today!
Cryofos “The Ice Gun” is a hand-held wand that looks like a gun, and from it is dispersed liquid carbon dioxide that becomes a very cold gas at room temperature.
How Cryofos Works
Basically, we will wave this wand over your sore area and within a few seconds, it will reduce the surface temperature of your skin to between 39 and 34 degrees Fahrenheit. This causes a thermal shock to the area which reduces pain, but more importantly, it causes dilation of the deeper vasculature which cleans out the histamines and prostaglandins responsible for your pain. In addition to this, the Ice Gun also stimulates two tracts in your spinal cord that are responsible for pain, pressure and other sensations that might not feel so good at times.
The Ice Gun is great for the following:
- post-surgical areas on your body
- dental implant pain
- joint pain
- sprains and strains
- inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, chronic neck and back pain
If you would like, look up Cryofos online, and watch some of our videos. It’s been available in Europe for the past 12 years or so and has only recently been approved by the FDA for use in the USA.
This device is similar in action to the Ice Boxes people have been hearing about and other cryotherapies, only this is much more targeted through the wand.
Currently, Paragon Chiropractic is the only facility in Arizona that offers Cryofos. If you would like to learn more or schedule an appointment, please contact us today.
