Cryotherapy, Benefits and the Process

Cryotherapy refers to a type of treatment that uses localized temperatures to freeze irritated nerves. It’s also used to treat conditions such as prostate cancer and abnormal skin cells. During this process, a probe is put next to the affected nerve before dropping the temperature so as to freeze the nerve. This then inactivates the nerve and as result reduces the nerve irritation. This procedure is not only safe but also an effective means of treating nerve irritation. Whole body cryotherapy chambers, on the other hand, are rooms brought to sub-zero temperatures to reduce the body temperature with the aim of achieving certain benefits.

Benefits of cryotherapy chambers

Some of the positive effects of cryotherapy chambers include

· Preventing edema.

· Reducing pain without taking drugs.

· Relieving muscle pain.

· Decreasing muscle spasms.

· Reducing swelling.

· Accelerating recovery time.

Process of cryotherapy chamber treatment

During treatment, your body temperature will be reduced by between 30-45 degrees within 3 minutes inside the chamber. Your temperature will also be measured before and after the treatment to allow the doctor to make proper recommendations for any future treatment. After exiting the chamber you will immediately warm with a full range of motion in your joints and muscles. As compared to ice or water treatment, your joints will not remain stiff for hours. Even if you do like the procedure it will rejuvenate your skin, body, and mind and will leave you much warmer.

Post whole body cryotherapy chamber treatment

After leaving the chamber it’s advisable to carry out cardiovascular movement for at least ten minutes to further promote the warming of the muscles so as to create a favorable circulatory effect to the body. This will ensure that fresh blood is taken to the muscles and stagnant blood is flushed out to prevent inflammation and muscle swelling.

Cryotherapy can be used to treat conditions concerning nerve irritation. Such conditions include rib nerves and nerve growths. Some examples include nerve irritation between the ribs and many other forms of nerve entrapment. While this procedure can reduce nerve irritation, it may leave the tissues affected with sensations such as tingling, numbness, irritation, and redness of the skin. However, these are usually temporary. In many instances, individuals report no side effects. However, when this occur you should see a doctor since they can be unpleasant and have long term effects.

· Do not touch the walls especially with our bare hands.

· Remove all the lotions and ointments.

Natural Arthritis Relief

Arthritis is a degenerative and painful condition marked by inflammation of one or more of your joints that causes pain and stiffness. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear in the joints and usually gets worse with age. Rheumatoid is the least common type, being brought about by an autoimmune disorder which causes synovial membrane inflammation and that can result in bone loss.

Whichever you type you experience, you will need to find an effective arthritis relief to manage ease the symptoms and manage the pain. Here are some of the best treatments for arthritis:

Ginger Tea

Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, and will help with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Ginger tea in particular has received a lot of attention lately. It contains active anti-inflammatory ingredients that are also powerful antioxidants. In addition, it brings down the levels of the two common inflammation-causing enzymes (which is what we are most a time fighting with arthritis.) People with arthritis can take ginger in form of a nice spicy cup of tea or in capsule form.

Epsom salt

Epsom salt is very rich in magnesium sulfate, which is quite a wonderful anti-inflammatory substance. Magnesium sulfate is a naturally occurring mineral and has been used as an arthritis relief for years, because of its high magnesium levels. Fill a basin with warm water and add a half cup of the salt. Stir it, and then submerge your paining joints in the liquid.

Dandelion Leaves

Dandelion leaves are incredibly high in vitamins C and A, and can help to repair damaged tissues and help the liver in clearing toxins out of the blood. Although limited, research has also shown anti-inflammatory properties because of the linoleic acid in them. The acid is highly needed by the body to produce prostaglandin, which basically suppresses inflammation and regulates immune responses.

Because of their involvement with immune responses, the leaves also show great potential when it comes to managing osteoarthritis in particular. You can brew tea with dandelion leaves, or enjoy them in nice salad.

Bosweilla supplements

Bosweilla plant is native to Asia and Africa. Also known as Frankincense, its gum resin and extracts have powerful anti-inflammatories and pain-killing properties. Bosweilla supplements work against inflammation by disabling white blood cells that are likely to cause swelling, and also help to shrink tissues that have already become painful and inflamed. The supplements are sold online and at many health stores. People who have had access to Bosweilla swear by it, and the results are generally amazing.
