Cryo & Chronic pain
Cryo for chronic pain
Chronic pain can significantly impact upon individual’s lives. Cryotherapy is a natural treatment which can be implemented into individual’s healthy lifestyles, allowing for the reduction and management of chronic pain within everyday life. When the body is exposed to extreme and cold temperatures for a short period of time the nerve transmissions to the brain indicating pain slow down. Norepinephrine and endorphin levels are further increased, with each response reducing inflammation and relieving the intensity and frequency of pain.
Cryotherapy was initially developed to manage and reduce pain and symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis and improving joint function and flexibility; therefore, regular sessions are highly effective in managing symptoms of specific chronic pains such as varieties of arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic migraines. Cryotherapy’s anti-inflammatory properties allow for the reduction and management of swelling, stiffness, inflammation and tension, all of which aid in alleviating acute and chronic pains.
