Cryotherapy + Osteopathy , the perfect therapeutic combination
The complementarity between osteopathy and cryotherapy
Everything depends on the vascularization of the tissues.
The basis of osteopathy is the vascularization .
Indeed, in our body, if everything is circulating well, everything is fine .
However, a lack of vascularization can lead to inflammation, pain, poor healing, etc. It is for this reason that the role of the osteopath is to treat the body as a whole to correct and relieve any dysfunctions in order to regulate the vascularization.
For this we find techniques:
of the nervous system
Osteopathy therefore treats the human body as a whole , that is to say the muscles as well as the joints, viscera or even the skull. This concerns everyone from the athlete, to the infant and to the pregnant woman before or after childbirth ...
An osteopath can be consulted in the acute phase , in the event of chronic pain or very specific pathology.
Many people go to an osteoarthritis for:
neck pain / stiff neck
headaches or migraines / headache
a spinal problem or back pain
low back pain / sciatica
Cryotherapy, for its part, is based on the effectiveness of thermal shock , that is to say the reaction of the body during a rapid drop in skin temperature. Following this thermal shock, the vessels retract (vasoconstriction) then dilate reflexively (vasodilation). The result is circulation boosted blood favoring exchanges and drainage of waste.
We therefore notice that these two treatments have a similar objective .
Adding an osteopathy session after a cryotherapy session therefore makes it possible to maximize the results of both cryotherapy and those of a classic osteopathy session.
The result for your body is maximized
Whole-body cryotherapy provides tremendous results on:
chronic inflammatory diseases
However, cryotherapy reaches its limits when it is necessary to manipulate a joint or act manually to obtain the best result.
This is exactly the role of the osteopath and it is therefore for this reason that cryotherapy and osteopathy are complementary.
Should we do osteopathy before or after cryotherapy ?
What happens after a cryotherapy session?
After a cryotherapy session you feel like you're in a cloud thanks to the hormonal secretions boosted by the 3 minutes at -110 °. The pain is relieved and the body is relaxed.
What happens after an osteopathy session?
In general, after an osteopathy session you feel relaxed and a little knocked out. The body needs time and work to rebalance itself following the maneuvers and manipulations of the osteopath. Often the practitioner advises to remain quiet 24 to 48 hours after the session.
Osteopathy after cryotherapy
We recommend doing the osteopathy session after the cryotherapy session.
Indeed, cryotherapy will relax you which will allow an easier job for the osteopath. Exposure to cold after osteopathy could tighten the body by protecting itself from the cold by muscle contractions.
The greatest efficiency will therefore be to take advantage of the benefits of whole-body cryotherapy and then take advantage of the action of osteopathy for optimal results.
