Cryotherapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis
Cryotherapy started as a therapy for people living with arthritis in the 1970’s. Theres no cure for Rheumatoid arthritis, but the goal of our treatment is to delay progression and decrease symptoms of this auto-immune and chronic condition. The treatment can be used along side physiotherapy and traditional medical practices to improve overall quality of life.
How it works
Cryotherapy can provide relief from musculoskeletal pain. It relaxes the body and helps to reduce or even eliminate muscle discomfort and fatigue, while reducing inflammation and pain. Another benefit of the treatment is that it significantly reduces histamine levels. Hestamine is a molecule in the blood which contributes to joints becoming for susceptible to inflammatory attack.
During a cryotherapy session, the body limits blood flow to the body’s core. The blood travels through the cardiovascular system where it is cleansed of toxins and supplied with oxygen, nutrients, and enzymes. Once you step out oxygen-rich blood is delivered around the body, boosting energy levels. This stimulates the immune system and the response reduces inflammation and tissue damage.
