Jackie Burrow, Licensed Massage Therapist and owner of Workhouse Wellness, provided this video demonstration of her Specialized Therapeutic Bodywork with integrated Cryotherapy. Combining massage therapy, infrared monitoring and a Zimmer Cryo 6 cold air device, Burrow talked through her method of rapidly relieving pain, swelling, spasm and inflammation.
Burrow explained that the patient in the video was being treated for tight, sore calf muscles. She first assesses temperatures in the calf, then softens and releases tissues via massage. At that point, she begins Cryotherapy integration “to manage inflammation, pain spasm cycle, reduce swelling and help with clearing the waste product.”
Talking through the cold therapy process and continuing to monitor tissue temperatures, Burrow said that she “focuses on the areas that are highest in [the patient’s] temperature range.” She then brings the temperature in those areas down by 40 degrees, or to “a close to numb sensation”. She notes that this is the point at which the positive physiological effects of Cryotherapy occur. The cold therapy portion of the treatment typically continues for about 3 to 4 minutes per area, depending on the density of the tissue. During a one-hour session, Burrow says that she can typically complete massage therapy, followed by Cryotherapy, on about 1 to 2 areas. During a 90-minute session, she is able to treat 2 to 3 areas.
