Do you have a sports injury that you want to heal faster? Use cold therapy that doesn’t require hours of sitting in a bath of ice and enduring the skin chilling temperatures and discomfort. Cryotherapy is a just one viable alternative that only takes a few minutes of your time. Uses liquid nitrogen that lowers the temperature to -200 degrees Fahrenheit and -256 degrees Fahrenheit, which then lowers the temperature of the skin in a few minutes. That action of severe cooling makes changes to the body that can help speed healing.
Cryotherapy can boost circulation.
When the surface of the body is suddenly cooled by extreme temperatures, the body protects itself by restricting the blood near the surface of the skin and sending it deep to the vital organs via vasoconstriction. Once you emerge from the cryochamber, the blood rushes back to the peripheral areas, boosting circulation that clears waste and reduces inflammation and swelling. It brings healing oxygen and nutrients to help boost the healing process.
Cold therapy in a cryochamber can help boost the creation of certain skin cells.
The reduction of inflammation from cold therapy, whether it’s via ice baths or a cryochamber, is well known. It’s why athletes have used ice baths for years after an injury and why many now use cryochambers. What most people don’t realize is that cryotherapy also helps increase the creation of collagen. Collagen aids in bringing in keratinocytes, fibroblasts and other types of cells that play a role in increasing tissue growth in wounds and injuries.
A full spectrum Sunlighten sauna treatment can also boost your healing powers.
Infrared treatments, particularly NIR—near infrared—wavelengths help boost skin cell production, cell health and because of that wound healing and tissue growth. The combination of near, mid and far infrared boosts the body’s own healing power, while giving aid to the immune system and reducing inflammation. It also can help remove toxins from your body that can slow healing.
- If you want a respiratory condition to heal faster, give halotherapy a chance. It’s based on the healing powers of the salt caves in Eastern Europe and has been used for years.
- Recent studies show that halotherapy sessions can help children with asthma and people with chronic bronchial conditions. It’s known for helping skin and sinus conditions and promoting healing.
