In a recent video, I showed you whole body cryotherapy and discussed why it has become so popular with pro athletes, weekend warriors and active adults as a treatment to recover from tough workouts. Maybe, though, you have a sore knee or ankle from that workout. Do you have to stand in a cryo tank to make that area feel better? Or is there another option? In this video, I show you local cryotherapy.

Local cryotherapy is similar to whole body cryotherapy in that the treatment uses cold air, but it’s applied only on the affected area. In this video, I discuss the science behind local cryotherapy. I show you a treatment I had for knee soreness after a workout. I also show you a simple way to do it yourself.

Always talk to your doctor before trying this or any recovery treatment. If you are interested in local cryotherapy, try it and see how it works for you.
