Central Arkansas Cryotherapy is locally owned by Darby Brighton and Matt Hamilton.

Darby is a licensed physical therapist. He owns and runs Innovative Spine Rehab right here in Little Rock, and has over 20 years of experience in the science of rehabilitation. Darby is also a veteran of the Little Rock Marathon as well as a competitor in Mixed Martial Arts and boxing.

Matt is co-owner of the largest MMA gym in the state. Since retiring from professional competition, Matt has spent the last eleven years training professional Mixed Martial Arts fighters and boxers.

To stay on the cutting edge of both rehabilitation and athletic performance, Darby and Matt joined together to open Central Arkansas Cryotherapy.

Our staff also includes Elizabeth Holder. Elizabeth graduated from UCA with her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology in 2014. She has been working in the field of physical therapy (rehabilitation) since the fall of 2014. She is a certified cryotherapy operator, and has been running the cryotherapy machine at Central Arkansas Cryotherapy since opening day (November 2, 2015). Elizabeth loves working in the field of rehabilitation, and is excited about the potential of cryotherapy.
