Cryotherapy could be a better option to take the edge off of back pain.
Whole body cryotherapy helps your entire body and this is an important fact because although many times you may have a herniated disc or other more specific local pain in your back, it still always causes pains and aches in other parts of your body because you’re compensating for the pain and most often leads to aches throughout your body.
How Does Cryotherapy Help Back Pain?
The positive impact of cold therapy is well documented. When you have back pains your mobility is drastically reduced. The pains often lead to depression and the list goes on and on. It seems that there is a negative trickle-down effect when you have back pains.
Because your spine protects your central nervous system and the slightest amount of damage can gently touch a nerve that sends electric lightning bolt strikes of pain throughout your body.
Sciatic pains or lumbar issues can all be positively impacted due to the whole body cryotherapy.
What is a herniation in the disc in your back?
Herniated disc the rubbery cushions between the individual vertebrae that make up your back is damaged; this is most common in the lower area of the spine, but can also occur in the neck area. It is not uncommon for the ‘cushons’ to bulge out from the area between your vertebrae and that is called a bulging disc.
These discs have a soft center and rough exterior, which may become ruptured, and this could be due to an injury or it could result from just aging and the wear and tear of life’s movements. The end result leads to causing some of the soft center to protrude through the exterior. This often affects nearby nerves and causes pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or in the buttocks, thighs, and calf of the leg as well as the back. The slightest touching of a nerve can send explosive pain through your body.
How does cryotherapy work?
Here’s what a famous doctor has to say about how cryotherapy helps joints and pains and the joints and pains of your back can receive the same benefits as the joints described in the quotes by this doctor:
The doctor asks if his studio audience thinks the WBC will work to help people.
And then he says this…
“The answer, it helps. These new, expanded forms of cold therapy can be very helpful for folks who have debilitating pain and inflammation and let me show you why… when you have pain and why cooling it makes a difference.
So, let’s say you’re exercising and you sprain your knee, right? You’ve got aches and pains inside of that knee, and what ends up happening if you have an eroded surface is the blood vessels over the painful limb begin to swell, and as those vessels swell a little bit, they’ll release chemicals, and the tissue underneath, next to it, get influenced by these white blood cells that sneak across and release chemicals that cause inflammation, irritation, and almost a scratchy feeling.
Now, that swelling can be addressed if you cool the joint. When you cool the joint, you shrink the blood vessels, and by shrinking the blood vessels, when they get smaller, it’s harder for the white blood cells to escape, you have less swelling, and therefore, the tissue around it, less chemicals release into the joint space and less aches and pains overall. It also affects the nerves because the nerves get cold, they stop sensing pain, and that influences, of course, the way your body will sense whatever’s going on down there.”
