Cryotherapy and Its Benefits The process of using cold temperatures as a means of therapy for health benefits is called cryotherapy. It was found out in the 1700s that applying cold compresses to muscle spasms led to reduce pain and further findings have shown the positive effects of cold temperature application, such as improve recovery, slow cell aging and health improvement. A new development on cold temperature therapy was invented in 1970s in Japan, which is subjecting the whole body in a specialized chamber using liquid nitrogen, which is now referred to as cryotherapy. Another process of cold temperature application is performed in a surgical setting where extreme cold temperature is applied to kill diseased tissues, such as cancer, and this process is known as cryoablation, while other cold applications are done to injured body parts to reduce inflammation. Furthermore, other cold temperature applications make use of ice baths or known as thermogenesis to regulate hormones and increase the leptin levels which is related to weight loss. Whole body cryotherapy is used for the following benefits: faster recovery from exercise, a boost in the immune system, increased energy and metabolism, reduced inflammation, treats nerve conditions.
Study: My Understanding of Resources
Although some are questioning the validity of the studies, but these studies claim the positive effect of WBC in delaying the onset muscle soreness among athletes and even called the process as cold sauna. Increase the leptin level triggered by WBC has been found to increase the immune system of the body.
How to Achieve Maximum Success with Cryotherapy
It was also found out that WBC can cause the release of catecholamines, adrenaline and noradrenaline, as well as other neuro-peptides, and, thereby, increasing energy and metabolism in the body. Medical practitioners have also tried cryotherapy to help inflammatory conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis and chronic pain conditions. Still, another helpful benefits of cryotherapy is in the treatment of certain nerve conditions, such as benign nerve growths (neuromas) and pinched nerves (nerve entrapments). Cryotherapy is also applied into another medical procedure which is cryosurgery. Cryosurgery is applied using extreme cold temperature to destroy abnormal tissues like tumors. The surgical procedure involves the use of liquid nitrogen, other choices are carbon dioxide and argon, at a very extreme temperature between -346 degrees F and -320 degrees F, which at this cold stage freezes anything that is in contact with it. With cryosurgery, cancers or precancerous lesions on the skin, and liver diseases can be treated where conventional surgery may be risky to use. Cryosurgery is also performed in the treatment of recurring cancer. To perform cryosurgery into an internal area, the surgeon will use first a scope, which is a flexible tube that can fit into openings in te body, such as urethra, rectum, or a surgical incision. Through an imaging equipment, the location of the area where the target cells are found is detected, afterwards, liquid nitrogen is fed into the area where the effect of the extreme low temperature freezes and kills these cells and later absorbed by the body.
