CryoCentral, a Cryotherapy NJ service!

Cryotherapy is a form of medical therapy that involves exposing the body to low temperatures for a short time. It can be either whole body cryotherapy (WBC) or localized cryotherapy to some body parts. In localized cryotherapy, icepacks and ice baths are placed over the body part of interest to absorb heat through conduction and alleviate muscle soreness, pain and inflammation. On the other hand, in whole-body cryotherapy, a special cryochamber is used where temperatures are kept as low as -211˚F, using refrigerated cold air and liquid Nitrogen. In the cryochamber, Individuals are exposed to subzero temperatures for 40 seconds at - 121˚F after which the temperature is further lowered to -211˚F for 2 - 3 minutes. Only minimal clothing to prevent vulnerable areas from frostbite is worn. Most of the skin is left exposed so than its surface temperature can be lowered by about 30-50˚F.  We also serve Cryotherapy NYC residents, we are just 5 minutes from the Holland Tunnel!

Whole Body Cryotherapy was first introduced in the hospital setting for treatment of diseases such as collagen disease, diseases of the spine and joints among others, but it has since gained wide acceptance in sports where many athletes both elite and recreational are using the therapy to promote fitness and enhance performance. 

Benefits of Cryotherapy

Athletic Recovery

Cryotherapy has gained a lot of popularity in sports medicine for its effectiveness in aiding fast athletic recovery. The therapy induces a natural anti-inflammatory effect in the body, which alleviates the inflammation that result from strenuous training sessions. This confers the following benefits to athletes:- 

- Accelerated muscle repair

- Quicker healing of injuries

- Less recovery time after training

- Decreased soreness of muscles

- Improved immune system

- Increased blood circulation and improved oxygen supply

- Better endurance

This means that after a punishing gym workout or a strenuous game or training exercise, athletes can resume training sooner and train harder after a whole body cryotherapy session since it leaves the muscles revived and recharged. 

Pain Management

Cryotherapy induces production of pain blocking endorphins. These hormones provide relief from pain and enhance pleasure. Pain management through cryotherapy assists in the treatment of muscle and joint injuries by allowing one to train through pain hence promoting fitness and faster recovery from injuries.

Overall Health and Wellness

Studies have revealed that cryotherapy triggers a chain of reactions that promote overall body health. When cooled abruptly, the body’s surface nerves trigger responses from the brain that cause flow of blood from the outer portions of the body towards the joints and internal organs. This leads to improved circulation of nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to all parts of the body especially the vital organs.  

Vasoconstriction and vasodilation of the skin’s blood vessels occurs during and after cryotherapy respectively. This causes the breakdown and flushing out of toxins within the skin layers. Collagen production is also activated in the deeper layers of the skin by the hyper-cooling process and this together with detoxification leaves the skin healthier and firmer.

The effective use of whole body cryotherapy to promote fitness especially in sports has been very promising and certainly a more desirable option to older methods such as ice baths. This is because, unlike ice baths, which are uncomfortable and require more exposure time, whole body cryotherapy treatments only require a short exposure time for optimal results adding comfort and convenience to the user.
