Pain Relief

Cryo and Cryo T-Shock provoke a range of mechanisms including the following:

  • A Decreased nerve transmission
  • Cold reduces the activity of free nerve endings
  • Cold raises the pain threshold
  • Cold causes a release of endorphins
  • Cold sensations override the pain sensations – known as the pain gate theory
  • Fast exchanges between cold and warm causes local vasoconstriction
  • Cold and Warm cause oxygen augmentation and metabolism has been accelerated for reducing inflammation
