Cryotherapy refers to a procedure, wherein the body or part of the body is exposed to very low temperatures to encourage healing and recovery.
The cold therapy reduces the metabolism of cells, this, in turn, reduces inflammation and other symptoms. The patient is exposed to temperatures as low as -110°c for up to 3 minutes at a time.
Cryotherapy Guidance frequency
The question that arises is, how often, should you undergo whole body cryotherapy to ensure that you get the best results from the treatment without suffering negative consequences. This question can only be answered fully after evaluating the reasons for having the treatment and your current lifestyle, it is advisable to consider the following:
- The nearest CryoAction cryotherapy chamber where you can undergo therapy.
- If you suffer from chronic pain, the cause of it
- Are you a sportsman who regularly does intensive training
- Do you often travel away from home
The number of weekly treatments.
If you are a professional sportsman or athlete following a rigorous training program with long hours of daily training it is common practice to do at least one daily session, in some instances even two sessions. Back to back sessions is not advisable.
If you use the therapy as a treatment for chronic pain and inflammation between 3 to 5 sessions per week is advisable, once it is under control 1 to 2 times per week is sufficient.
Many people prefer to undergo cryotherapy for the health and mental benefits from exposing your body to the cold therapy and 1-2 times a week will be sufficient.
Being regular is the key to success.
Everybody has different needs and reasons why they go for cryotherapy but the key to success is regular treatments to ensure long-term results. Like any training exercise, regular treatments are necessary to help the body rid itself from inflammation.
The view is held that when you start treatment, your cryotherapy program should be kicked off with 2 weeks of intensive therapy of 5-7 sessions per week, to assist the body to rid itself of inflammation and thereafter stick to the recommended number of weekly treatments.
