Localized Cryotherapy is an isolated cold exposure therapy focused on one specific area of pain or inflammation. This can be used as a stand alone therapy much like a concentrated ice pack; however, exponential healing happens when administered immediately after a whole body cryotherapy session. Why? the vasodilation (widening of blood vessels) during the whole body sessions opens the capillaries up to 400% allowing deeper penetration of the isolated cold air treatment to treat inflammation. Localized is also often used to treat migraine headaches.
