Cryotherapy for arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic condition that currently has no cure – but that doesn’t mean people with the condition need to suffer in silence. Cryotherapy treatments were originally designed specifically for treating the symptoms of arthritis.
Whole Body Cryotherapy has been shown to reduce histamine levels. Histamine is a molecule that can make our joints more susceptible to inflammation. Studies have shown lower levels of histamine molecules in the blood of patients who have been treated with Whole Body Cryotherapy.
Recent studies have shown that in addition to physical therapy, Whole Body Cryotherapy – as delivered in our state-of-the-art cryosauna – can reduce the inflammation and pain associated with arthritis. While not a substitute for prescription medication or physical therapy, studies have shown that in up to 60% of cases, patients gained greater mobility and in up to 35% of cases, a decrease in medication use.
Our clinics are fully equipped with state-of-the-art cryosaunas to help with the pain associated with arthritis. A session in the cryotherapy chamber takes only a few minutes and can have immediate effects. Book in for a consultation today to see how we can help.
