Ever heard of athletes taking ice baths? There is now a new treatment called Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) that works similar to ice baths, but without the messy water and ice. WBC is a treatment that is becoming more and more popular among athletes, patients with chronic pain, and patients who just want to feel great. Able to improve a variety of conditions, WBC is a natural alternative to medications. Even sports stars like LeBron James utilize it!
WBC can help relieve symptoms of many ailments, including both physical and mental conditions. Some of the conditions that may benefit from WBC include chronic pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, and degenerated spinal discs. It can even relieve depression, boost immune system response, and reduce chronic fatigue syndrome. In addition to medical benefits, WBC works great for fitness. Some fitness-related benefits include faster recovery from muscle soreness, increased energy, decreased recovery time from injury, and improved joint function.
Patients will first strip down to their underwear and socks. They will also wear slippers, gloves, a mask, and earmuffs. Patients will wear a robe until they enter the cryotherapy chamber. The chamber will cool down the air to around 250 degrees Fahrenheit and you will remain in the chamber for two to three minutes. When the session is over, your body will begin to warm back up instantly as your blood moves back to your extremities. Many patients say they experience a warm and tingly sensation. Increased energy levels are commonly experienced within a few minutes.
