Cryotherapy is a terminology used to describe cold therapy; cryo in Greek means cold. Cold therapy has been used in old times in a range of forms, including ice baths. Egyptians used it to treat inflammations and injuries as early as in 2500 BC. Nowadays, Cryotherapy is also used during surgeries (known as cryosurgery) and for cosmetic purposes.
Whole-body Cryotherapy has become popular within sports medicine for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant effects, and anti-analgesic benefits.
Regardless of age or gender, everyone can benefit from Cryotherapy, although its effectiveness can vary depending on the purpose and gender. For example, according to studies, females respond better to the cold and more vasoconstrictive periphery when used for weight loss.
Lets now review ten additional benefits of Cryotherapy:
For cosmetic purposes, Cryotherapy is widely used for facial treatments to help reduce lines and wrinkles. The low temperatures boost collagen and help tighten the skin, giving a quick and noticeable fresh look. Although aging can't stop, Cryotherapy can slow it down by stimulating collagen production.
Cryotherapy can help reduce pain and increase joint mobility, which is also why it's popular among athletes. People with back pain or other parts of the body can also benefit from Cryotherapy sessions.
The exposure to cold temperatures can increase the white blood cell count and, as a result, strengthen the immune system.
Cryotherapy can help reduce inflammation, pain, and overall improve and reduce symptoms in patients with arthritis and other rheumatic diseases.
Cold therapy can reduce stress, anxiety, and can help treat people with depression.
Cryotherapy also stimulates metabolism and weight loss; the thermal shock helps destroy fat cells, reduce cellulite, and tone the skin.
Cryotherapy helps manage edemas and hemorrhage by reducing capillary permeability.
In the medical world, cold therapy procedures have been used to help treat low-risk tumors like prostate cancer.
Studies suggest Cryotherapy might help prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia, from the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects it has.
Although most people don't recommend Cryotherapy when having dermatitis or eczema, in some cases, it might help reduce symptoms and overall improve skin conditions. There have been several studies testing Cryotherapy on people with these conditions, who have seen an improvement in their skin.
