The use of cold for the benefit of health is found world wide from athletic locker rooms to doctor’s offices. Could cryotherapy benefit you? We believe the answer is Yes, 100%!
Cryotherapy is the "I" component of R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, and elevation). This is a treatment recommended for the home care of many injuries, particularly ones caused by sports. The analgesic (pain-relieving) effects of cryotherapy are related to three specific changes in the body.
First, the nerve signal transmission is slowed. Reducing the amount of nerve signals getting through to the brain might relieve pain in some individuals.
Second, nor-epinephrine levels increase after cold immersion. This stress-induced chemical reduces pain sensitivity as a protective mechanism in times of life-or-death situations.
Lastly, cryotherapy can reduce pain intensity and frequency by reducing inflammation.
Cryotherapy is a great pain management alternative when the following are considered:
1. Cryotherapy is an all-natural treatment.
2. When medication is no longer effective.
3. Side effects from medication are too great.
4. Alternative to surgery.
