Heat and Cold Application Directions:
Note: In most cases where inflammation is present in the treatment area, the cold application will be most beneficial. When a cold effect is desired: Place or store CryoSphere in a freezer or refrigerator until the desired temperature is achieved. Use as directed and re-cool as needed. Do not use the CryoSphere if is too cold. Applying severely cold objects to the skin can result in frostbite injuries.
When a heating effect is desired: Run warm tap water over the CryoSphere or place it in a warm water bath until desired temperature is achieved. Use as directed and reheat as necessary. Do not overheat. Using a CryoSphere that is overheated may cause burning injuries or damage to the product. Do not use conventional or convectional ovens, microwaves, or other heat providing devices to heat the CryoSphere.
Please Read Instructions Carefully
General Instructions: While in a seated position use the CryoSphere on a clean towel laid on a non-skid floor surface such as a carpeted floor or rug. For best results, slowly roll the CryoSphere back and forth under the foot with the desired amount of force concentrating on the more painful areas. Recommended treatment time is approximately 4-6 minutes. Do not place more than 25 pounds of pressure on the CryoSphere. To do so may result in an elevation in pain, further injury or damage to the product. The duration of the massage and the amount of the pressure you should apply will vary depending on the severity of your pain. If symptoms worsen during use, decrease the amount of pressure or the length of treatment. If adverse effects persist, discontinue using the CryoSphere and consult a physician.
Note: Results may be enhanced when used in conjunction with stretching, medication, or other therapy interventions.
