Jan 01, 2016 12:57PM
To promote recovery from pain and injury, as well as maintain balance in the body for optimal health, modalities such as whole body cryotherapy, dry needling, cupping therapy, kinesiology taping and cold laser therapy can all be beneficial.
Whole body cryotherapy can enhance performance and recovery, improve mood and energy, boost metabolism, and aid in rehabilitation, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. Cold laser therapy assists in cellular repair by penetrating deeply into the tissue and restoring cell function. Effects include improved cellular metabolism, tissue healing and circulation.
Dry needling is an effective treatment for injury and injury prevention. By stimulating blood flow and tissue repair, it promotes and speeds up the healing process, decreasing recovery time and pain from injury or sore muscles.
Cupping therapy helps treat soft tissue injuries, promoting healing by enhancing blood flow. The suction of the cups mobilizes blood flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments.
Kinesiology taping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints, without restricting range of motion. It is used successfully to treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.
