Local Cryotherapy works a charm for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that usually presents itself as heel or arch of the foot pain, it can be caused by various factors such as running and flat arches.

How Local Cryotherapy can aid in relieving Plantar Fasciitis

We have been documenting fantastic results with local cryotherapy for this condition, we had a patient come over recently from Limpopo province who has been suffering this debilitating pain in his left foot and even tried having cortisone injections into his foot to no avail.   After 4 sessions of physiotherapy and local cryotherapy the pain has completely settled.

More on Local Cryotherapy: 

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.

Most popular applications:
