How it works:

After entering the cryochamber, your brain is quickly triggered to protect itself from the cold by rapidly pulling your blood into the body's core. The cold causes vasoconstriction which helps to minimize muscle injury and to repair muscle tears quickly. The cold affects only the skin temperature, 1/2 millimeter deep, and doesn't reduce the body's internal temperature or freeze the tissue as does an ice bath. After stepping out of the cryosauna, the super oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood rushes to the extremities and reduces inflammation and spasms by inducing a systemic (whole body) response that promotes pain relief, healing, and a physical sense of well being through the accelerated release of endorphins. Recovery and lost time from injury and physical exertion is shortened and the daily stresses on the mind and body are relieved an rejuvenated.

Cryotherapy for Pain

Research has shows that cryotherapy is particularly effective in pain management following a surgery. According to Medscape, a study evaluated pain levels in two groups of post-surgical patients: those who received cryotherapy versus those who only used narcotic pain relievers. The morning after surgery, those who used cryotherapy reported an average pain level of 3.12 as compared to 4.86  for those who didn't.The discrepancies in the pain scores continued to increase as time elapsed after surgery. Plus, the group using cryotherapy was able to reduce their intake of narcotic pain relievers, lowering their risk of serious side effects.
