Advancements in science and technology have allowed for incredible improvements in the world of health. Cryotherapy is a therapeutic option that makes excellent use of the technology available today to provide pain relief for chronic ailments, improve metabolism to promote weight loss, and enhance body performance and health.
Cryotherapy can benefit people from all sides of the spectrum. Whether you are young or old, in shape or getting there, cryotherapy can be the key to providing you with a better quality of life.
Cryotherapy uses a dry nitrogen mist to expose the body to extreme low temperatures ranging from -90 Celsius (-130°F) to -120 Celsius (-184°F). This exposure to low temperatures activates a natural immune system response to provide instant pain and inflammation relief through the increase of blood circulation and the release of endorphins.
Imagine an ice bath, something commonly used to help with pain and swelling. Instead of a 30-minute ice bath, cryotherapy condenses that process into three minutes to provide instant relief with no downtime.
The body receives a number of benefits through increased blood circulation and the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain inhibitors and mood elevators. Improved blood circulation will greatly reduce any inflammation by supplying the body with additional nutrients and oxygen-enriched blood. The additional oxygen and nutrients will also promote faster healing through the stimulation of cellular regeneration in the body.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Cryotherapy?
Many elite athletes have switched to cryotherapy as a way to help their muscles recover after training or to help speed up recovery following an injury. Professional teams across the world have adopted cryotherapy as the primary way to help their players recover quickly, as a three-minute session of cryotherapy is typically enough time for the benefits to take effect.
Cryotherapy is not just for athletes or people at the peak of their health. Cryotherapy can help those who suffer from obesity by improving their metabolism, and it can help the immune system to improve resistance against infections and diseases. Cryotherapy can help to greatly reduce pain in people who suffer from chronic arthritis, muscle discomfort, and joint pain due to injury or old age.
Individuals who undergo cryotherapy also experience deeper and more energizing sleep, which provides them with the energy they need for their daily activities.
