Effects of NRS Therapy

Two Pathways to the Brain

The key to NRS Therapy is the treatment of pain through the COMBINED effects of extreme cooling AND pressure. The pressure component of NRS Therapy allows for the treatment of pain via two pathways to the Thalamus.

Lateral Spinothalamic Tract (Pain & Temperature)

Ventral Spinothalamic Tract (Touch & Pressure)

Potentiation is achieved via the conduction of BOTH tracts!

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS

Analgesic

Decreased pain through the inhibition of nociceptors

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Immediate suppression of enzymes and decreased inflammation

VASOMOTOR

Deep vasodilation within 20-30 seconds of treatment

NEUROLOGICAL

Muscle relaxation as a result of myostatic reflex in the medulla
