The four most widely sought after benefits of cryotherapy include:
WBC has shown to be effective in reducing inflammation. When tissue is exposed to cold temperatures, there is a decrease in circulation which in turns reduces inflammation in that region.
Pain is the number one reason for seeking treatments of all types. By exposing the skin and/or body to extremely cold temperatures it in turn triggers receptors throughout the body and the brain which has been shown to override the sense of pain.
The increasing popularity has been due to its effectiveness in pre- and post-physical activity recovery. Whether the individual is exercising, working out, performing or have suffered an injury, the effects have shown to increase the body’s natural ability to bounce back quicker.
With the stimulating factors that WBC accomplishes within tissues, sensory organs, the
brain as well as the body’s reaction to this modality, it has been proven to also increase the body’s metabolism, burn calories as well as increase healthy processes throughout the body.
Even though cryotherapy is mainly used for the above-mentioned benefits, there are even more positive physiological effects that Whole Body Cryotherapy has shown to be effective that are being studied and documented such as for various skin conditions, insomnia, stimulating the release of certain hormones throughout the body, pre-and post-surgical treatment, cosmetic benefits, stimulation as well as increasing physical performance.
