CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat have many Therapeutic uses, among them is the treatment of pain associated with muscle, joint, and neurological conditions. They have Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Arthritic, Anti-Bruising and Anti-Spasmodic properties as well as having a stimulation effect on the vascular and lymphatic systems. Both products may be used pre and post rehabilitation exercises in office and at home.
What Makes CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat Different From Other Topicals
CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat were formulated to immediately break the pain spasm cycle by overwhelming the topical receptors thereby eliciting the Gate Theory Of Pain Control. Once the pain signal is completely or significantly reduced the muscles no longer need to be in involuntary contraction, as they begin to release blood flows to the area breaking up the ischemic condition. Energy begins to be made aerobically as opposed to anaerobically stopping the production of lactic acid and the buildup of metabolic waste. While this is happening the essential Natural ingredients in the formula are penetrating deep into the tissue to create a long term anesthetic affect. The delivery of these key ingredients is aided by MSM which regulates the sodium potassium pumps in the cell thereby increasing permeability. Once delivered peppermint oil stimulates the vascular and lymphatic system further aiding in the removal of metabolic waste and the reversal of the ischemic condition. Additionally other vital ingredients in CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat have anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising, anti-spasmodic and anti-septic properties.
Some other Topicals simply have insufficient amounts of active ingredients to elicit these responses and merely cause skin irritation and cold or hot sensations. This is a band aid effect and doesn’t actually address or assist in the healing process of the body.
Range Of Motion Therapy
CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat release muscle spasm and reduce swelling and inflammation thereby effectively increasing range of motion allowing the therapist to passively or actively move the affected area through a greater range of motion. Reduced pain means therapy becomes easier with greater compliance.
Spray and Stretch
CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat work extremely well as a Spray and Stretch agent. Treat the area to be stretched then wait approximately three to five minutes and begin stretching. No need to hurry because the effects of CRYODERM & CryoDerm Heat last for hours. Obtain better results with less discomfort to the patient.
Use with Ultrasound
Apply CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat to the area to be treated, and then allow it to dry for several minutes. Apply an FDA approved coupling Gel or Lotion over the area and perform the treatment as usual keeping in mind that the sensation will be enhanced so check in with your patient while performing this procedure. Never mix CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat with Ultrasound medium as the active ingredients become trapped in the coupling agent and are far less effective than when applied directly to the affected area.
After Cold Therapy
Applying CRYODERM after cold therapy will enhance and prolong the cold sensation, while adding additional longer term anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising and anti-spasmodic effects to the treatment. CryoDerm Heat may also be applied after cold therapy to create a contrast therapy.
Pre or Post Moist Heat Therapy
Due to the high strength of our products we do not recommend applying heat on the area that has been treated as it may cause excessive hyperemia, discomfort and potentially burn the patient. CryoDerm Heat may be applied five to ten minutes after the hot pack has been removed. This will enhance and prolong the warm sensation, while adding additional longer term anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising and anti-spasmodic effects to the treatment. For contrast therapy apply CRYODERM five to ten minutes after the hot pack has been removed.
Apply CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat post therapy to reduce inflammation, pain, discomfort and post therapy soreness and stiffness. CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat speed up recovery time and aid the body in its natural healing process. Maximize your therapy results with CRYODERM and CryoDerm Heat.
At-Home Therapy Use
Suggest to your patients that they should purchase a bottle of CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat for home use between visits. Patients will find that CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat will help them manage pain and discomfort between office visits. Applying CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat Pre-home rehabilitation exercise reduces pain and makes patients more compliant. Additionally applying CRYODERM or CryoDerm Heat at home after treatment aids in speeding up the body’s healing process.
