Cryotherapy helps drastically reduce muscle pain, as well as some joint and muscle disorders, such as arthritis, which is why athletes use it to heal much quicker from their injuries. While Cryotherapy alone will not cause weight loss, it significantly supports the process of boosting your body’s metabolism as being cold forces the body to work harder to stay warm.
A significant reduction in inflammation is one of Cryotherapy’s most important benefits. Even though inflammation is one way the immune system fights infection, there are times that the immune system becomes overly reactive. This can result in chronic inflammation, which is linked to heath problems, such as cancer, diabetes, depression, dementia, and arthritis.
There are even many mental health benefits to doing Cryotherapy, as it has been found in studies to reduce anxiety and depression. A sizable amount of research has found that cryotherapy reduced inflammation and suggests that it could treat mental health conditions linked to inflammation. A 2008 study found that in a third of people with depression or anxiety, cryotherapy reduced symptoms by at least 50 percent. This was a much greater reduction than in people who did not undergo cryotherapy. Along with anxiety and depression, Cryotherapy has also been found to greatly reduce migraines.
