Cryotherapy to Cure a Cold, Ease Pain and Detox

Here's a little secret: if you've ever iced a pulled muscle, you've already done cryotherapy, which literally means “cold therapy." Put simply, cryotherapy is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures for several minutes. The treatment can be delivered to just one area (localized), or you can opt for whole-body cryotherapy. Similar to the ice bath that professional athletes utilize after an extreme workout, cryotherapy reduces inflammation, resulting in quicker muscle recovery and decreased muscle soreness. It can also offer relief for people suffering from chronic pain, inflammation-related diseases and skin disorders like fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and eczema and has been used to promote quicker healing post injury or surgery. Recently, cryotherapy has been popularized by athletes and fitness enthusiasts, the stressed-out and overworked, those looking to get their bodies back on track from injury and chronic pain, and those seeking general health and wellness. Amber and Ryan hit Capital Cryo to see if this extreme cold could cure Amber's summer sickness, and to talk to a cryo therapist about what to expect from your first cryo session.
