How Does Cryotherapy Work?
If you have ever placed an ice pack on a bruise or aching tooth, you have experienced the basic principles utilized in cryotherapy. By quickly reducing your body’s temperature, the treatment will have a number of effects. First, it will constrict blood vessels in your extremities, which reduces inflammation in your muscle and skeletal systems, allowing blood to reroute to your core and major organs.
In response, there will be higher nutrient and oxygen levels in your blood, and your system will more effectively flush away toxins. Your body will also raise its white blood cell count, which will further ease inflammation and promote a stronger immune system.
Your body may also produce less cortisol, a hormone connected to anxiety and depression.
As the circulation increases in your core, it will reduce water weight and stimulate your endocrine response. Your body will then release more endorphins, and may also produce less cortisol, a hormone connected to anxiety and depression.
What Is a Session Like?
When you undergo cryotherapy at our practice, you will step inside a special chamber that will leave your head exposed. Cooled by liquid nitrogen, the air temperature in the chamber will be between -100 and -274 Fahrenheit.
In just three minutes, the subzero air will cool your skin by at least 30 degrees, triggering the before mentioned reactions. As your body warms up after the treatment, blood will quickly flow back to your extremities. This circulation will help repair damaged muscles, especially after athletic injury.
