Local Cryotherapy for Sinusitis

Dread springtime for that awful sinusitis? Did you know that application of local cryotherapy to the facial sinuses can reduce the pain and inflammation of sinusitis?

Combine this with physiotherapy that mobilises the facial bones, changes the pressure within the sinuses and thus facilitates drainage of the sinus cavities. Acupuncture is another powerful adjunct that can reduce pain and inflammation of the sinuses and modulate the immune system.

This wonderful combo is a drug-free adjunct to soothe the symptoms of sinusitis, it is unique to Cryoliving, so give us a call to make your booking.

More about Local Cryotherapy services:

While WBCT achieves systemic responses, there is still a need to focus on specific injuries. Local cryotherapy is used to target specific areas more intensively. It has also proven to be extremely effective when used in conjunction with WBCT.

With Local cryotherapy, pressured liquid nitrogen vapour is sprayed directly onto the injured area. The skin temperature is reduced from about 25˚C to 5˚C, which takes approximately 3 min for an area of 5cm x 5cm. Immediately after the treatment the skin temperature increases to approximately 29˚C as the stimulating responses take place.

Local Cryotherapy is applied by our extensively trained Physiotherapist. Treatments are always preceded by an initial assessment to ensure the correct approach is followed.
