How long do the effects of cryotherapy last? The answer is it depends. Here’s why we say that.
If you only get one treatment you may experience the endorphins and other positive impacts for up to 8 hours. But there are some reports that seem to lead to the conclusion that there is almost a cumulative positive impact if you get more than one treatment.
Let’s look at it like this.
LeBron James is one of the greatest NBA players in history. And it’s not just that he is a great player, it’s also because he has really only been injured basically one time in his career.
He credits his recovery and his ability to reduce inflammation to getting consistent cryotherapy treatments.
Are we saying you’ll have the ability to not get hurt? NO. That’s not what we’re saying. Yet, if a person who generates millions of dollars a year because of staying in shape and keeping inflammation at a minimum despite the rough play of the NBA trusts his body to the powerful benefits of cryotherapy then how much more should you do the same also? – Right?
Let’s take a closer look at why this cryo-chamber is such a hit for so many people right here in Jacksonville, Fl.
This type of therapy or treatment is far from new. Everyone knows that ice helps to reduce inflammation. So if a bag of ice can help you, then you can just imagine how much more a brief stint of immersing your body will help.
There are many people who say that it has positive benefits in terms of aesthetics as well as to help improve mobility while reducing pain and inflammation.
The chamber gets a couple of hundred degrees below zero due to nitrogen in the liquid form. This is similar to the cryosurgery process that is used for other procedures. So it’s safe, provided you are only exposed to the low temperatures for a short period of time.
If you have certain medical conditions then you should not get this type of treatment, but for a large portion of the general population, this treatment would be suitable.
The use of cryo, which means cold, therapy is taking the health and wellness as well as the beauty industry by storm due to the many benefits.
The concept of your body doing what it does best and that is healing is a large part as to how and why cryotherapy is helping so many people.
The low temperatures lead to your body to recruit your blood supply to flow to the most vital organs. The oxygen-rich and nutrient-rich blood get concentrated in your vital organs and your organs do what they are supposed to do to the blood so that when you leave the cold environment the blood flows to your body is enriched and less toxic.
This process helps to remove the inflammatory components which lead to less pain and it’s virtually like getting a detox for your blood.
Any removal of any toxins has a cascading positive impact on your body from the looks and feel of your skin to the revitalized and reenergized muscles due to the cleanse.
The other benefits are extreme mental clarity. It’s been described as when the endorphins impact your brain you’ll have a tremendous boost of energy and focus almost like drinking a large amount of coffee, but with no negative after-effects.
The treatment can be for overall physical good health maintenance or it is good for recovering from an injury or even if you’re experiencing chronic pains.
The list of uses is very long and growing.
When dealing with WBC which stands for whole body cryotherapy it speeds up the healing process for several reasons. A key reason is the collateral effect of injuries or even if it’s just the impact of aging. Either way, when you have pain in a knee. The other leg winds up having to work harder and carry a heavier load. The end result is often that you end up with multiple injuries. That’s why even if you’re only experiencing pain in a specific area, it is often smart to do the WBC to help off-set the collateral effect.
The WBC aids in reduced inflammation and increased mobility along with the many other benefits. Even the side effects often provide positive effects.
This is not a complete list of side effects and some of the side effects are negative too. So be sure to know all of the possible side effects before getting treatment.
One side effect is your skin gets what is described as a healthy glow. The thinking is due to the improved circulation and the boost in collagen, you can over time see a lasting effect of your skin smoothing and in some instances a reduction in wrinkles.
Needless to say, this is a very popular reason for some people to look into the WBC.
The bottom line is results will vary from person to person and the treatment is not guaranteed just like surgery is not guaranteed. Yet, when you look at the results that so many people are experiencing it makes sense to learn more and discover for yourself just how long the effects of cryotherapy will last for you.
