Cryotherapy is based on the effects of very cold temperatures when applied to certain areas of the body. In this treatment very cold air (temperature generally lower than minus 30 degrees centigrade) is released via a tube and directed onto the treated area of the body. It is kept for between 15-20 minutes, dependent on the prescription of the doctor. The cold air from the tube reduces inflammation and helps relieve pain. This is an effective treatment for such conditions as swollen joints and tennis elbow.
