History of Cryotherapy
The Egyptians used cold to treat injuries and inflammation as early as 2500 BCE. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) in its current form was first administered in 1978 by a Japanese rheumatologist by the name of Dr. Yamaguchi. He used freezing treatments of short duration on his patients’ skin surface for pain management of rheumatoid arthritis. He concluded that rapid short-term freezing of the skin’s surface led to immediate release of endorphins and is more effective than gradual cooling in an ice bath. His research led to the exposure of the entire body to these extreme temperatures with the development of cryogenic chambers. Further research in Europe and in Soviet Russia revealed the benefit of Whole Body Cryotherapy on patients suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions and on elite athlete’s training programs.
Research has shown WBC may improve the following: athletic recovery, rehabilitation, chronic pain, recovery from injury, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, MS, sleep disorders, depressive and anxiety disorders.
