The Power and Precision of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, a term stemming from the Greek words ‘cryo’ meaning cold and ‘therapy’ meaning cure, is a cutting-edge procedure that involves the use of extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen or argon gas to freeze and destroy abnormal tissues. It’s a procedure that is gaining traction, especially given the current circumstances of its diminished availability through the NHS. But what is this procedure? How does it work? And importantly, how can it benefit you?
The Mechanics of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy might sound futuristic, but its underlying principle is straightforward. The technique involves emitting a fine jet of super-cold gas under high pressure. This gas freezes the inter-cellular fluid within abnormal tissues. As this fluid freezes, it forms ice shards and crystals, which, in turn, rupture and destroy the cell membrane. When the cell membrane is compromised, the cell itself is destroyed.
A significant advantage of this method? Its millimetre precision. Cryotherapy ensures that only the targeted tissue is affected, leaving the surrounding healthy tissue unharmed. This precision prevents unintended collateral damage and promotes quicker healing.
The Relevance in Today’s Healthcare Landscape
It’s noteworthy that while cryotherapy is an effective treatment method for various skin conditions, its accessibility through the NHS has become restricted. This change might be concerning for individuals who have come to rely on or are in need of this treatment. But the good news is that with proper cryotherapy training, professionals can now integrate this service into their businesses, making it available for the broader public.
