Relieve Autoimmune Disorder Symptoms with Icebox Cryotherapy
Did you know? Cryotherapy was originally developed specifically as a treatment for autoimmune disorders.
Back in 1978, Japanese researchers discovered that exposing the body to extremely cold temperatures reduced the joint inflammation that is the hallmark of rheumatoid arthritis. Cryotherapy was born and the rest is history. Since its inception, it has been used for anything from Floyd Mayweather’s boxing injuries to helping those suffering from depression and anxiety. And it continues to help those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory autoimmune disorders.
Autoimmune disorders are, at their most simplistic, a dysfunction of one’s immune system. Instead of getting rid of harmful bacteria and viruses, one’s immune system attacks a properly-functioning body part. This, of course, causes a whole host of health problems.
The simplicity of these diseases ends here. Autoimmune disorders are incredibly hard to diagnose, and even harder to live with. One’s hopes of treatment are mere attempts at mitigating the vast array of symptoms.
But autoimmune disorders are not all doom and gloom! Cryotherapy is a quick and non-invasive way to make something as complicated and life-affecting as an autoimmune disorder a little simpler. Shown to reduce the inflammation caused by many autoimmune disorders, it is one of the easiest ways to start managing your symptoms. If you or someone you know has one of these autoimmune disorders, consider looking into booking a session at an Icebox Cryotherapy studio:
