The future of medicine is right now at West Volusia Family and Sports Medicine.

Cryogenic therapy, or cryotherapy, combats chronic pain and soreness and has made huge strides in the last decade. Even though it was invented in the 1700’s, this “radical” treatment option hasn’t been widely available to the public until very recently. We consider it an effective way to help our patients manage pain. To see what all the buzz is about read on to learn more...

Cryotherapy uses a mix of liquids with low boiling points, like liquid nitrogen and carbon dioxide, to achieve extremely low temperatures. What those temperatures do is freeze the intracellular fluid (ICF) of skin lesions, like moles, warts and other imperfections. With their insides frozen solid, they are easily removed. For localized treatment, results are usually visible to the naked eye within 24 hours—even if healing is not complete for 1 to 2 weeks. Cryotherapy has also been shown to accelerate the recovery of joint, tendon and muscle injuries as well. Cryotherapy is a safe, rigorously tested treatment method that is guaranteed to help relieve your chronic pain and soreness, and the results of cryotherapy on lesions and skin imperfections like moles and warts is well documented.
