Involving the use of very low temperatures, cryotherapy has been a common
remedy for aches and pains for athletes for many years. During a typical session,
the body is exposed to temperatures as low as 200 to 250 degrees below
Fahrenheit. Now the therapeutic technique is becoming increasingly available for
use by non-athletes looking for similar results for back pain management. Spine
surgeons in Beverly Hills discuss cryotherapy and how it may or may not help
alleviate back pain.
Developed in Japan in the 1970s, cryotherapy affects inflamed or irritated muscles
and soft tissues in much the same way applying an ice pack does. The theory is that
the exposure to extreme cold speeds recovery and reduces muscle soreness.
Though many athletes swear by the technique, there isn’t much scientific evidence
to confirm its effectiveness, partly because results tend to be subjective.
Some athletes claim cryotherapy helps them get back to their normal exercise
routine between games without distracting pain.
Supporters of cryotherapy claim it can help with weight loss, which may ease back
pain by reducing stress from extra pounds. Though being cold boosts metabolism
and increases calorie burning, it’s not meant to be a long-term or go-to weight loss
Along with full body cryotherapy, PEMF (pulsed electro-magnetic field) therapy at Touch
Free Wellness is a great treatment for bone regeneration. The combination of
Cryotherapy with PEMF is a great ‘one-two punch’ in helping in bone growth.
