Cryotherapy for Chronic Pain

It’s been widely proven that cold can help to relieve pain and inflammation when administered in short bursts. Until now, physiotherapists and other medical practitioners have relied upon cold compresses and ice baths to reduce the symptoms of pain – but cryotherapy takes this concept to a whole new level.

Those who suffer from long-term conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and chronic migraines have reported that just one cryotherapy treatment has led to improved mobility and a reduction in pain. This is because cryotherapy naturally reduces inflammation; a session will also deliver a powerful rush of endorphins, which has an immediate analgesic effect on pain.

How does it work?

Cryotherapy is quick, safe and effective.

And what’s more, you only need to spend a short amount of time inside the CryoCabin to reap the many benefits of cryotherapy for chronic pain.

Once you are inside the machine, a nitrogen mist will be released at -140 Celsius. You will be immersed in this low temperature for a maximum of three minutes. During this time, your body will react to the extreme cold by entering ‘flight or flight’ mode, during which anti-inflammatory proteins and feel good hormones are released directly into your blood stream.

Cryotherapy will:

  • Reduce inflammation in your system
  • Relieve muscle and joint pain
  • Boost your energy levels
  • Kick-start your immune system
  • Improve your sleep quality

Remember, cryotherapy is not designed to replace your pain medication, and it’s not an alternative to ongoing physiotherapy. But regular exposure treatments will reduce discomfort and prevent flare-ups.

Though we are certain you will feel better after a single session, we would recommend a course of whole body cryotherapy treatments if you want to significantly improve your symptoms over time.
