How Does Cryotherapy Work?
You’ll be placed in a special chamber where your body will be completely engulfed in a special nitrogen gas that can drop to temperatures of -220 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll remain in the chamber for about 2 to 3 minutes. As your body’s temperature falls, blood will be sent from the skin surface, muscles, and surrounding joint space to your core as a protective measure. As a result, the blood will be restricted to traveling to your vital organs, ensuring that they receive elevated levels of oxygen and nutrients. Once you leave the chamber, blood will start to return to the skin’s surface.
Benefits of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is generally used to make chiropractic adjustments more effective in the long term. Not only does it help soothe pain and ease muscle tension, but it can also decrease inflammation, swelling, and muscle spasms. It also improves blood circulation, which is vital for the healing process. Depending on your needs, cryotherapy might be employed before or after your regular chiropractic adjustment, and it tends to improve the results and contribute to faster recovery times.
Is Cryotherapy Right for Me?
In general, cryotherapy is considered safe. That said, it’s not suitable for pregnant women, children, patients with especially high blood pressure, and anyone with a heart condition. Dr. Rozenberg will need to consider your health history as well as the current state of your body before recommending cryotherapy as a solution for any condition. The treatment is usually reserved for treating specific types of pain; it’s especially useful for discomfort located in the back or the neck.
