Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a special modality designed to reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation by briefly exposing body to negative temperatures. This induces effects of analgesia, reduction of inflammation, and stimulates tissue repair by influencing changes on the DNA level.
The treatments at the Center for Joint and Spine Relief are administered individually in the cryotherapy chamber. The cryo chamber uses gasiform nitrogen to rapidly lower the temperature of the skin’s top layer to 32°F while cabin temperature drops to -274°F. During the three minutes of extreme cold, the brain stimulates the body’s organ regulatory functions resulting in caloric expenditure, energy increase, cell rejuvenation, immune system boost, and overall system anti-inflammatory, healing response.
