Downey welcomed the most advanced recovery technology in the United States, with a ribbon cutting Thursday, April 20th.
Cryotherapy is leading the modernization of whole body treatment using walk-in cold chambers. It is a pain treatment that uses a method of localized freezing temperatures to deaden an irritated nerve. Cryotherapy is also used as a method of treating localized areas of some cancers and to treat abnormal skin cells by dermatologists.
The temperature of the probe drops -230 degrees to then effectively freeze the nerve. The freezing inactivates the nerve and, as a result, painful nerve irritation is relieved. Cryotherapy is a relatively safe and effective means of treating localized nerve irritation.
Cryotherapy can be used to treat conditions that involve irritation of an isolated nerve. In general, such conditions include benign nerve growths (neuromas) and pinched nerves (nerve entrapments).
Specific examples include nerve irritation between the ribs (intercostal neuralgia), cluneal nerve entrapment, ilioinguinal neuroma, hypogastric neuromas, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve entrapment, and interdigital neuromas. Many forms of nerve entrapment can often be treated with Cryotherapy.
While Cryotherapy can reduce unwanted nerve irritation, it sometimes can leave the tissue affected with unusual sensations, such as numbness or tingling, or with redness and irritation of the skin. These effects are generally temporary lasting only four to five minutes.
Owners Johnny and Monique Miranda have already helped numerous residents, Warren High sport players, and NFL player and professional boxers. A whole body session begins at $60 with special pricing for students, and multiple sessions. California Cryo is located at 8036 3rd Street, Suite 102, in Downey.
