USES OF CRYODERM
Range Of Motion Therapy
Uses of CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat release muscle spasm and reduce swelling and inflammation thereby effectively increasing range of motion allowing the therapist to passively or actively move the affected area through a greater range of motion. Reduced pain means therapy becomes easier with greater compliance.
Spray and Stretch | Cryoderm
Uses of CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat work extremely well as a Spray and Stretch agent. Treat the area to be stretched then wait approximately three to five minutes and begin stretching. No need to hurry because the effects of CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat last for hours. Obtain better results with less discomfort to the patient.
Use with Ultrasound
Apply CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat to the area to be treated, and then allow it to dry for several minutes. Apply an FDA approved coupling Gel or Lotion over the area and perform the treatment as usual keeping in mind that the sensation will be enhanced so check in with your patient while performing this procedure. Never mix CRYODERM or CryoDerm. Heat with Ultrasound medium as the active ingredients become trapped in the coupling agent and are far less effective than when applied directly to the affected area.
After Cold Therapy
Applying CRYODERM after cold therapy will enhance and prolong the cold sensation while adding additional longer-term anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising and anti-spasmodic effects to the treatment. CryoDerm Heat may also be applied after cold therapy to create a contrast therapy.
Pre or Post Moist Heat Therapy
Due to the high strength of our products we do not recommend applying heat on the area that has been treated as it may cause excessive hyperemia, discomfort, and potentially burn the patient. CryoDerm Heat may be applied five to ten minutes after the hot pack has been removed. This will enhance and prolong the warm sensation while adding additional longer-term anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising and anti-spasmodic effects to the treatment. In contrast, therapy applies CRYODERM five to ten minutes after the hot pack has been removed.
Apply CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat post-therapy to reduce inflammation, pain, discomfort, and post-therapy soreness and stiffness. CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat speed up recovery time and aid the body in its natural healing process. Maximize your therapy results with CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat.
