Let’s start by giving you a quick background on cryotherapy and where it originated. The word “Cryotherapy” derives from the greek words “cryo” meaning cold, and “therapeia” meaning cure. Thus, Cryotherapy is a curative health treatment involving subzero temperatures.

While trialling these methods, Dr. Yamauchi found that he could significantly reduce soreness and pain in his patients if he just used this cold therapy prior to manipulating their joints.
