What is cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy is a therapeutic approach harnessing the power of cold temperatures. It involves targeted application, such as using ice packs, coolant sprays, or specialized probes for local treatment. Alternatively, whole-body cryotherapy submerges the entire individual in exceptionally low temperatures for a brief duration, providing holistic health benefits.
Cryotherapy is a general term that refers to treatment using cold temperatures. It’s also known as cold therapy.
Cryotherapy is used to treat chronic pain from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, as well as general ligament and muscle pain. The treatment uses extremely low temperatures to stimulate the body.
