Why is this course important?

Cryotherapy treatments are increasingly getting popular across the UK. Cryotherapy is any treatment that involves the use of freezing or near-freezing temperatures. Because cryotherapy treatments are new, some potential benefits are not yet proven. Cryotherapy might be a safe alternative treatment and preventative for many ailments.

It is therefore essential for healthcare professionals who use these treatments to understand how they work, side effects, their safe handling and applications. This online cryotherapy training course helps healthcare practitioners who use cryotherapy treatments to consider critical elements around their contraindications, safe use, health and safety issues, side effects and complications.
