Many people today suffer from chronic pains and arthritis. Most of these people are prescribed anti-inflammatory medications to try and help combat limited mobility and joint pain. However, most of these medications also come with side effects such as heartburn, upset stomach, ulcers, and an increased risk of blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes.
The need for a more natural, quicker and safer way to help lessen joint pain and inflammation caused by arthritis became apparent in the 60's. That is when a Japanese doctor, Dr. Yamauchi, created Whole Body Cryotherapy. He found that Cryotherapy helped to treat inflammation and joint immobility which was caused from Rheumatoid Arthritis. He put his patients through a process which involves bringing the body's surface temperature to a sub-zero temperature. This activated the bodies natural fight or flight response which allowed for the body to release its natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving chemicals throughout the body and to the areas that were inflamed and in pain. This treatment became very successful and his patients quickly noticed a relief in pain after just one to three Cryotherapy sessions.
Other beneficial responses that happened after the Cryotherapy sessions included a reduction in inflammation and swelling around joint regions, improved immune systems and an increase in the patient's energy as well as an improvement in the patient's moods.
A single Cryotherapy session only lasts 3 minutes, which is why many people have found this alternative treatment easy to fit into their treatment regimens.
