Whole-body Cryotherapy was originally designed as a treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Inflammatory Joint Diseases. Proving extremely effective, Whole-body Cryotherapy quickly gained notoriety for that specific issue, but also to treat systemic inflammation processes throughout the body.
Inflammation is part of a complex biological response of tissues to harmful stimuli, such as damaged cells. The common signs of inflammation are pain, heat, redness, and swelling, being a protective attempt by the body to remove the injurious stimuli and initiate the healing process. Initially, this is an effective part of the body’s natural healing process. Problems occur when chronic inflammation goes unchecked throughout the body.
With Whole Body Cryotherapy, the chronic inflammation is reduced and in some instances, completely stopped. Thus improving circulation, reducing pain and promoting an overall better health.
