“In a recent study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, the use of ice was examined as a way to improve flexibility. In this study the researchers focused on the hamstrings.
This group of muscles is large enough that the cold from cryotherapy can’t penetrate the whole muscle. This creates a steep temperature gradient, meaning that the muscle near the surface is much cooler than the muscle deep down. The deeper muscle then experiences increased blood flow, and theoretically, the muscle’s resistance against stretching is reduced.
Cryotherapy increased flexibility by about six angular degrees before the stretching even began. Stretching alone improved flexibility by ten degrees, but stretching and cryotherapy together (ice therapy) improved flexibility by about fourteen degrees.”
We are always searching for the best, most result driven procedures for our patients — which is why we are thrilled to announce this NEW addition to the Germain Dermatology service list: Cryotherapy.
Recently featured on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider, Cryotherapy, is more than just a trend sweeping the nation… it’s a medical revelation. Germain Dermatology will be one of the first offices on the East Coast to offer the Single Person Cryosauna- able to treat the whole body in quick 1.5-3 minute sessions known as Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC).
The Cryosauna drops a patient’s skin temperature to an average of 50 °F- while the core body temperature remains unchanged- this temperature therapy is proven to improve inflammation in the body resulting in pain management, weight loss, sleep improvement, disease management (such as arthritis), skin rejuvenation and more.
What’s even better? No appointments are necessary. You can pop in during your lunch break, on the way home from work – anytime during office hours – and see the results begin!
