I recently I helped a client who fell and broke her wrist. The day after her fall she came to me for a facial and told me about her injury. She hadn’t been to A&E, believing it wasn’t broken.
Whilst I am not a Doctor and urged her to visit her GP, I also suggested that as she was here in my Clinic I would give her a Cryotherapy session to help with the general soreness of the joint. She felt a great sense of relief after the session on her wrist which was swollen.
The next day she went to the hospital, she had broken it. She was sent home with a removable cast so she continued to come for Cryotherapy and told me that the cold treatment provided her with a great deal of pain relief.
Upon returning for her follow-up check with the doctor, he was pleasantly surprised as to how far her wrist had healed, faster than he thought. My client mentioned that she had been having Cryotherapy to which he replied she had been doing the best thing.
