Today’s, modern Cryotherapy is an excellent and quick pain management treatment. The extreme cold (-120c to -180c) treats muscle and joint pain, as well as inflammation associated with arthritis and other chronic illnesses. Cryotherapy works to reduce swelling by constricting blood vessels from expanding, during this process anti-inflammatory proteins in the blood are also increased which aides in pain management.
In addition to preventing swelling and reducing inflammation, a three-minute Cryotherapy session also helps to infuse the blood with nutrients and enzymes as well as releasing a surge of endorphins that restrict your body’s ability to perceive pain. An added bonus of cold therapy is heightened mood while combating chronic or severe pain having a mood booster can also aid in dealing with pain.
