Hilotherapy is a precise temperature controlled treatment that reduces pain, swelling and bruising following surgery or injury. It is also highly effective in the treatment of persistent joint problems including many types of arthritis.
For centuries ice has been used to aid recovery following injury. By using precise temperature control, Hilotherapy can take healing properties to a new level.
A safe, natural way to relieve pain & promote faster healing.

Preliminary results of an observational study looking at impact on patient pain of using Hilotherapy following orthopaedic surgery and rheumatic patients
Result of an observation study
An observational study performed at the Rheumatism Center in Oberammergau showed that pain intensity as measured by the test subjects using a visual 10-stage analog scale was reduced from 6 to 4 following the application of Hilotherapy (average value of participants). In the most extreme case the reduction of individual pain perceived went from 7 to 2. The need for pain killers was also reduced in 25% of cases. The main diseases among the test subjects were rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, psoriasis arthropathy, finger polyathrosis, CRPS and fibromyalgia syndrome. The average duration of treatment was 15 minutes with an average cooling temperature of +15ºC.
