Bringing Physical Therapy, Cryotherapy, & Infrared Sauna Together

A Cryotherapy Session Prior to a Physical Therapy Session Helps

Going into an Infrared Sauna after Therapy, relaxing and wonderful

What if there was a way to make rehabilitation more effective, would you do it? 

What if being inside a cold chamber for 2 to 3 minutes shortened recovery time and reduced pain, would it be worth it to you?

What if spending 20 minutes inside an Infrared Sauna after a therapy session relaxed you and reduced the soreness, would you take the time? 

I believe for most of us the answer would be a resounding yes, of course. 

Benefits Associated With Cryotherapy Prior to and Infrared Sauna After Physical Therapy

  1. Cryotherapy will reduce the pain normally associated with therapy and also increase range of motion for a more productive session. Cryotherapys main purpose is to reduce inflammation in the body and by doing this will allow the body to heal faster and more efficiently and therefore shorten recovery time.
  2. Infrared Sauna after physical therapy allows the body to relax and will increase blood flow and this will make for a better more effective recovery.

While choosing either cryotherapy or infrared sauna during a physical therapy session will greatly enhance the experience, doing both will give you the greatest amount of pain relief while at the same time allowing your body to heal.

While Ridgeland Physical Therapy does except all major insurances as well as medicare Cryotherapy and Infrared Sauna is not covered by them. We will do all we can to make the investment in yourself and your recovery worth every minute and every dollar you spend with us. All this in one located in Sheridan Park in Bluffton.
