Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, is a procedure performed right in the office. Cryosurgery can treat a range of problems and pain. Cryosurgery is used to treat many foot and ankle problems including plantar fasciitis, neuromas, Achilles tendonitis and much more.

The term cryotherapy refers to treating an injury or condition with ice. During Cryotherapy a freezing probe is used to freeze the nerve, acting as a long lasting anesthesia. The icing of the injury helps to increase healing time, reduce inflammation, and deliver nutrients to the injured area.

This treatment is a great alternative to traditional surgery for many reasons. It is done right in the office, it is minimally invasive, and has little side effects.

Some of the advantages include:
1. High success rate
2. Your insurance may cover it
3. Practically no recovery time
4. No down time
5. Minimally invasive
