Impact Whole Body Cryotherapy

At Houston Flex we are proud to be one of the first facilities in Houston to offer Impact Whole Body Cryotherapy, soft tissue mobilization treatment and flexibility.


I came to Dr. Cadena in 2011, 2 weeks before the Boston Marathon w/ a painful knee injury. The pain and swelling I experienced was like none other and I had serious doubts that I would be able to run the race that year.

After a biomechanics assessment and gait analysis Dr. Cadena was able to quickly address my  underlying issue and began treatment. I knew there would be no quick fix, as this particular problem would take time to heal. But after several treatments over that next week and a half, including the day before my flight, I was able to "toe the line" and run my first Boston.

Ever since last April I have returned to Dr. Cadena for anything and everything that "ails" me through all of my running/tri training and racing. Usually, within a few sessions I am as good as new and have learned the error in my technique that caused the pain, which is key to injury prevention! Thanks Dr. Cadena!

When I began treatment with Dr. Cadena I suffered from severe hip flexor, low back, and sciatic pain. Because my pain was so severe, I was unable to do any type of cardio work out. After a thorough exam, Dr. Cadena explained to me that a mild scoliosis, a leg length difference and being flat footed were all contributing factors to my sever pain. Dr. Cadena also explained that my case was a difficult case and may take a few weeks before we would see any results. I completely understood, I had been under another Dr’s care for months with minimal results. Dr. Cadena immediately began addressing the hip and sciatic pain with aggressive soft tissue and flexibility treatment. On the second and third visit we addressed being flat footed and the proper support needed. By my fourth visit we had significant improvement and was able to resume training. I have complete confidence in Dr. Cadena and his expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Cadena to all in the fitness industry. Thanks Dr. Cadena!

I had been relatively injury free for many years but wound up in a minor bike accident that didn’t directly affect my running, but the compensation for my tweaked ankle caused some hip pain.  Some friends of mine had seen Dr. Cadena and recommended him to me. My original hip problem I went in with was feeling great after just a couple visits, so I decided to continue seeing Dr. Cadena for routine stretching as I was putting in many miles and more intense training than usual.  My legs and feet felt the best they had in a long time and my weekly long runs of 20+ miles felt great in general.  I was able to run PRs in both the half marathon and full marathon within a month of each other, and recovered very quickly after each.  I’ve recommended Dr. Cadena to others, and those who have gone have seen great results.

Training 30+ hours a week is tough on my body, I’m constantly sore and tight everywhere. So when I’m in Houston, I make sure to stop in to see Dr. Cadena with the confidence he will have me feeling loose and ready to train hard.

Playing in the NFL requires a lot of hard work and preparation day in and day out. Staying on the field, injury free, from one week to the next also requires a lot of hard work and preparation. As part of my weekly preparation, i use Dr. Cadena at Houston Flex to keep me playing at my highest level, and highly recommend him to any professional athlete. Thanks Dr. Cadena!!
