Benefits of Cryotherapy

Benefits of Cryotherapy

Do you suffer from chronic inflammation or pain? What about arthritis or a recent sports injury? The list could go on and on, but if you answered yes to any of those questions, you may benefit from localized or whole body cryotherapy! Keep reading to see if cryotherapy is right for you.

In addition to the benefits listed above, cryotherapy is also great for accelerating recovery, increasing mobility, muscle relaxation and stress relief. Most people come out of the chamber feeling well rested and invigorated. Here are the services offered by U.S. Cryotherapy:

  • Whole-body cryotherapy: 2 to 3.5 minutes of full-body cold exposure that reduces pain, inflammation, and stress while rejuvenating your body, skin, and mind. Our whole-body cryotherapy chambers are nitrogen-free, free oxygenated air. 
  • Localized cryotherapy: Targets specific muscle areas or joints directly with cold air for 2 to 3 minutes to decrease pain and inflammation while improving circulation. 
  • Normatec: Uses compression therapy to increase circulation and moves fluid through the body to promote faster recovery. 
  • Theragun: An advanced massage device that breaks up muscle tightness, reduces soreness, and restores range of motion in as little as 30 seconds. 

1. Accelerates Recovery

Does this week’s workout have you feeling sore? Cryotherapy provides blood flow to the   areas of your body needing regeneration after your workout. Hop into the cryotherapy chamber for 2-3 minutes and walk out ready to tackle your next workout.

2. Reduces inflammation

Cryotherapy releases anti-inflammatory cytokines which lead to reduced swelling and inflammation.

3.Increases mobility

The benefits of cold therapy help improve range of motion while lessening the pain reception in the affected area.

4. Relaxes muscles

Cryotherapy increases your body’s circulation to relax muscle tension.

5. Relieves stress

By releasing endorphins in your brain, cryotherapy elevates your mood, energy and stress levels. You may feel like a brand new person coming out of the cryotherapy chamber.

6. Pain Relief

Also having to do with pain reception, cold shock therapy upsets pain reception providing natural relief to the most painful areas of your body.

If you aren’t a fan of cold weather, cryotherapy can still be for you! The air in the cryotherapy chambers is a cold, dry air- unlike the cold, wet air that you experience outside in the winter time. This makes it much more bearable. In addition, the whole session only lasts around 2-3 minutes and is only affecting the temperature of your skin. Your blood and core temperature remains the same.
