Hydrotherapy and Cryo Chill
Hydrotherapy, formerly called hydropathy and called water cure, is a part of alternative medicine (particularly naturopathy), occupational therapy, and physiotherapy, which involves water for pain relief and treatment. Hydrotherapy is the use of water, both internally and externally and at varying temperatures, for health purposes. Also known as water therapy or "water cures," hydrotherapy includes such treatments as saunas, steam baths, foot baths, contrast therapy, sitz baths, and colonic cleansing.
RIGID Refrigeration Condensing Units are being used in a pain relief treatment which is increasingly administered in athletes clubs and hospitals.

What's Hydrotherapy and Benefits?
Water therapy may be restricted to use as hydrotherapy, a form of physical therapy. However, it is also used as a medium for the delivery of heat and cold to the body, which has long been the basis for its application. Hydrotherapy involves a range of methods and techniques, many of which use water as a medium to facilitate thermoregulatory reactions for therapeutic benefit.
Cryotherapy (equipped with Refrigeration Condensing Unit) requires a patient to enter a cold chamber approximately the size of a sauna, in which there is a temperature of -110°C and where the moisture has been largely removed from the air. As well as pain relief, it is also used in the treatment of various skin disorders such as neurodermatitis and psoriasis.
During an application lasting just a few minutes, the extremely low temperature causes a pleasant tingling sensation on the bare skin. It is claimed to eliminate pain immediately, the duration of such pain relief depending on the individual.
Hydrotherapy is used as an adjunct to therapy, including in nursing, where its use is now long-established. It continues to be widely used for burn treatment, although shower-based hydrotherapy techniques have been increasingly used in preference to full-immersion methods, partly for the ease of cleaning the equipment and reducing infections due to contamination. When removal of tissue is necessary for the treatment of wounds, hydrotherapy which performs selective mechanical debridement can be used. Examples of this include directed wound irrigation and therapeutic irrigation with suction.
