A Guide for Clinics Deciding Between Localized and Whole Body Cryotherapy

As cryotherapy continues to grow in popularity and usage in diverse healthcare sectors, many clinics are facing a critical question – should they opt for localized cryotherapy devices, whole-body cryotherapy (WBC) chambers, or both? This article offers a comprehensive guide for clinics to make an informed choice.

Understanding Cryotherapy

Regardless of the type, cryotherapy is designed to use extremely cold temperatures for therapeutic benefits. It aids in reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, promoting recovery post-physical exertion, and offers benefits to skin health and overall body metabolism.

Localized vs. Whole Body Cryotherapy

Localized cryotherapy device focuses on a specific area of the body, delivering concentrated cold therapy to a targeted injury or spot needing treatment. On the other hand, the WBC chamber exposes the entire body (from the neck down) to ultra-low temperatures in a specialized chamber for approximately two to three minutes.

Key Considerations for Clinics

  • Target Audience

  • Localized: Best for clinics serving patients with specific pain points or injuries, localized skin conditions, or targeted inflammation.
  • WBC: Ideal for clinics geared towards athleticism or general wellness, providing benefits such as systemic anti-inflammation, muscle recovery, immune system stimulation, and mood enhancement.
  • Investment and Maintenance Costs

  • Localized: Usually requires less upfront investment and lower maintenance costs due to smaller, more straightforward equipment.
  • WBC: Whole-body cryo cabins come with higher procurement and upkeep costs but can also command higher prices for sessions, potentially leading to larger returns over time.
  • Space Considerations

  • Localized: With portable devices or small, localized machines, this option is viable even in smaller clinics.
  • WBC: Requires more space, making it ideal for larger facilities or those expressly dedicated to cryotherapy.
  • Training and Manpower

  • Localized: It’s easier to train staff for localized cryotherapy, and they can multitask during sessions, which are often longer yet require less continual oversight.
  • WBC: Requires thorough training and constant attention during each brief session, which can involve higher staffing requirements.
  • Duration and Frequency of Treatments

  • Localized: Sessions are usually longer and can be applied more frequently, which could allow for more patient turnover.
  • WBC: Although sessions are speedy, the preparation and recovery time might limit the number of treatments per day.
  • Regulatory Requirements

Depending on regional healthcare regulations, there might be different licensing, safety, and regulatory standards to meet for providing WBC versus localized cryotherapy.

The decision for a clinic to choose between localized cryotherapy and WBC ultimately depends on its target audience, budgetary considerations, space availability, and operational model. Some clinics might find it advantageous to offer both, providing comprehensive cryotherapy solutions tailored to diverse patient needs.
