My first experience ever with a full body Cryotherapy Chamber for a total body recovery experience.
I Spent three minutes in a -220°F Full Body Cryotherapy Chamber for a total body recovery experience.
What Cryotherapy Does
Cryotherapy is a technique in which the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. It can be performed on a small area, typically done with either ice packs or cooling sprays. But there is also something called WBC (whole body cryotherapy) whereby the patient enters a chamber or small enclosure where the temperature will drop to between negative 200-300 degrees Fahrenheit. The treatment length is only three to four minutes.
How Does Whole-Body Cryotherapy Work?
You may be wondering how it works. Our whole-body cryotherapy chamber at Physio Logic uses liquid nitrogen to achieve a drop in temperature.
When you enter the chamber, you are not coming into direct contact with liquid nitrogen, but you are close enough to the source that it rapidly drops the temperature of your skin. This rapid decrease in temperature has many physiological effects on the body, which we will discuss more below. There are several reasons why a patient may decide to pursue cryotherapy treatment.
What Are The Benefits?
Whole-body cryotherapy is most effective when it is used routinely. Countless athletes swear by whole body cryotherapy, using it up to twice a day during training. Generally, optimal results are seen in 10 to 20 treatment sessions, but it also depends on the severity of the condition patients are seeking treatment for in the first place.
