The technique

Neurocryostimulation

A powerful thermal shock

Carbon dioxide at -78°C and 50 bar pressure enable a drop in cutaneous temperature from 32°C to 4°C within 30 seconds.

THIS CUTANEOUS THERMAL SHOCK MUST BE ACHIEVED IN ONLY A FEW SECONDS IN ORDER TO TRIGGER A CENTRAL NEUROLOGICAL RESPONSE.


AUTONOMIC REFLEX

Once activated, cutaneous receptors send an alert signal to the brain. The latter responds immediately via the autonomic reflex system.

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS

The technique acts on the body’s enzymes, vascular and lymphatic systems, and stimulates the cutaneous receptors.

  1. Relives pain immediately 
  2. Stops inflammatory crisis
  3. Drains haematomas and oedema due to its vasomotor effect
  4. Triggers immediate muscular relaxation
 
 

 

The power of the CO2 micro-crystals at a temperature of -78°C, combined with the speed of the drop in temperature and the vibration created by the jet, generates a high-intensity reaction called: THERMAL SHOCK.

 

External receptors of the skin are not aware of NCS (NeuroCryoStimulation) signal where as they are normally programmed to react with traditional cold treatment techniques such as ice, sprays or forced air. Accordingly, the autonomic reflex response that forms the basis of the NCS treatment is completely different and twice as powerful.

It aims to regulate localised homoeostasis by means of mechanical and enzymatic action. The effectiveness of treatment results is achieved due to the potency of analgesic and vasomotor effects, combined with a powerful antiinflammatory effect.

 

Scientific presentation of the NeuroCryoStimulation process

 

Therapeutic

 

Example of treated pathologies

  1. Tendinopathy (epicondylitis)
  2. Neck pain 
  3. Back pain
  4. Sciatica
  5. Post-traumatic peri-articular oedema
  6. Haematomas and oedema
  7. Post-operative pain
  8. Algodistrophy
 

Particularly effective in trauma, rheumatology or post-operative contexts, the technique provides an effective treatment for acute or chronic pathologies.

Example of treated pathologies

  1. Tennis Elbow
  2. Achilles tendonitis
  3. Sprains
  4. Periostitis
  5. Sports hernia
  6. Muscular spasms
  7. Post-operative treatment for cruciate ligaments
 

An increase in participation in sports due to an early resumption of sporting activities, preventing a loss of cardiorespiratory fitness.

" Any fresh trauma to the musculoskeletal system may benefit from a NeuroCryoStimulation treatment [...]

Using the Cryo One© unit generally enables better subsequent quality and more focused initial healing. "
