What is Cryotherapy? It’s the use of low temperatures to treat muscle pain, sprains, swelling, and more.
Debbie Potts visits the Northwest Cryotherapy Institute to see what they have to offer… and just how cold cryotherapy can get!
Check out my video on my Cryotherapy experience and check out my new weekly blog:
Cryotherapy, or “cold therapy,” utilizes extreme cold to activate the central nervous system. The process is fast, just 2-3 minutes. The body’s natural ability to heal itself is potentially optimized, which may significantly reduce pain, inflammation and swelling.
- Improve Blood Flow
- Increase Circulation
- Remove Toxins
Whole Body Cryotherapy: The gold standard! Clients enter an enclosed booth wearing protective socks, gloves and headgear for approximately 2-3 minutes. The cryo chamber reaches temperatures of -137 degrees F by an electrically cooled system. The experience is truly unique and exhilarating. Whole Body Cryotherapy is dry so it may not feel uncomfortable, unlike submersion in an ice bath might feel. The cryo chamber has a glass door and a 2-way intercom to ensure that you have visual and voice contact at all times.
Local Cryotherapy targets specific areas of inflammation by precisely blowing -25 degree F air to a concentrated area of the body. Treatments range from 3-5 minutes and are potentially effective at decreasing joint pain and swelling, improving range of motion, alleviating inflammatory skin conditions, treating acute athletic injuries and generalized pain relief. For those people who are unable to enter the cryo chamber, local treatments may provide a safe alternative to whole body cryotherapy.
