Human beings have been treating inflammation and wounds with cold therapy for thousands of years, and it’s common knowledge to use a cold compress as first aid for swelling and injuries. Taking it a step further, today you can simply enter a cryotherapy chamber for three minutes to receive all-over body treatment – which feels incredibly refreshing and invigorating.
Cryotherapy can help to treat damaged tissues, skin conditions, and even some cancers. The cold temperature will facilitate the natural healing and rejuvenation processes in your body.
Let’s talk about what you can expect from a cryotherapy session, and where you can go here in the Jacksonville area to receive this revolutionary treatment.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
A cryotherapy chamber utilizes liquid nitrogen to make the air temperature in the chamber very cold. Your head will remain above the cooling zone, and your hands and feet will be protected during the three-minute session. The air remains dry, so you will remain clean during and after the treatment – nothing gets on your skin.
The extremely low temperatures will help to slow down inflammatory reactions from an injury; it also promotes healthy blood circulation throughout the body. Together, these factors boost the body’s natural healing processes while reducing pain, fostering the removal of toxins from the body, and enhancing muscular recovery.
Some of the lasting effects of cryotherapy are that it can help to improve your sleep, boost your metabolism, and stimulate collagen production. Because it fosters metabolism, cryotherapy is also frequently used in weight-loss programs.
What Can Cryotherapy Treat?
Cryotherapy is most commonly used to treat sports-related injuries. However, it can also be implemented as part of your holistic treatment plan to address health conditions such as:
- Recurring skin conditions, such as warts
- Precancerous skin lesions and early-stage skin cancers
- Precancerous cervix cells
- Bone cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Liver cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression
- Migraine headaches
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
