There are many different types of joint pain all of which can be extremely uncomfortable and sometimes even debilitating. These include auto-immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, tendonitis, bursitis, overuse injuries and much more.
Common signs associated with these conditions are lessened quality of life, aching joints, pain with movement, decreased mobility, swelling and soreness to the touch. There also tends to be a high correlation with these conditions and reliance on anti-inflammatory and other types of pain medication.
So how can whole body cryotherapy help? With the brief (but comfortable!) exposure to extreme cold your body creates a physiological reaction that will positively affect your joints and other parts of the body. Specifically, it causes an immediate release within your body of anti-inflammatory proteins and endorphins as well as increased circulation to the joints. As this happens, joint pain is reduced (or even eliminated), swelling goes down and your movement is increased. Best of all, because whole body cryotherapy creates a systemic response, all your joints can benefit from the same treatment at one time.
