IS CRYOTHERAPY SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE?

Soon after cryotherapy’s discovery, scientific research into it began to emerge, and it still does. Cryotherapy has always had its supporters and detractors, just like any new technology or practise. And science works to make it obvious.

The primary focus of the first studies was on the consequences of extreme cold on the body. Whole body cryotherapy is based on conventional cold therapy, which treats patients with ice packs and ice baths. There is no disputing the fact that cold reduces pain and inflammation; the main concern of these studies was the impact of the extremely low temperatures used in whole-body cryotherapy.

Research has looked at how the cold affects several species, including horses. Because of this, localised cryotherapy is now frequently utilised to treat horses.

Other research examined the impact of whole-body cryotherapy on a variety of illnesses and chronic ailments (for example, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, dementia, depression, etc.). Some of them have confusing conclusions, which is why researchers are still looking into them.
