Whole Body Cryotherapy: Experience Something Cool
Cryotherapy Is Good For The Joints
For centuries, people have been applying ice packs to help reduce swelling and pain in joints. Now, there’s a better option – whole body Cryotherapy. Thanks to Cryotherapy, you can stand in a cold, dry sauna for just 3 minutes and receive immediate and long-lasting relief from joint pain.
Whole body Cryotherapy, as it’s known today, was developed in Japan in the late 1970s as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.
Until recently, most people who suffered from acute or chronic joint pain had just two options: physical therapy and painkillers. In 2009, however, Cryotherapy was introduced in the United States, and we’re proud to be one of the few providers of whole body Cryotherapy treatment in the entire state of Colorado!
Cryotherapy can help with the following types of joint pain:
• knee pain
• hip pain
• back pain
• elbow pain
• rheumatoid arthritis
Here’s how Cryotherapy works: When your body is exposed to an extremely cold temperature (the Cryotherapy sauna is between -200F and -240F), your blood vessels constrict, and there’s an immediate reduction in swelling.
In addition, because of the extremely cold, dry air, your body immediately begins producing endorphins and serotonin, which are hormones that block nerve impulses to the joints.
After Cryotherapy treatments, some people experience immediate pain relief, while others may feel its beneficial effects hours or days later.
While different people experience different reactions to whole body Cryotherapy, in general, joint pain relief comes about because:
• Cryotherapy slows down nerve signal transmissions, which can lead to pain relief
• Cryotherapy produces chemicals that can reduce pain sensitivity
• Cryotherapy can reduce inflammation, which is one of the primary causes of pain
