Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is the exposure of the entire body to extreme cold (usually between -80 to -120 degrees celcius). WBC stimulates the body’s natural response to decrease inflammation, pain, spasms and promote healing. it is a non-invasive option for people seeking faster muscle recovery from injury and fatigue. It differs from localised cryotherapy by inducing systemic responses including: the relief or elimination of pain; promotion of blood circulation; the antiinflammatory effect improves joint & muscular function. These systemic responses increase the patients tolerance of accepted physiotherapy treatments. Today, WBC is being increasingly widely used to treat chronic inflammatory arthritic diseases, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, acute and sub-acute injuries, chronic and acute pain relief.
Whole body Cryotherapy is the process of utilising extreme cold temperatures to naturally stimulate the body.
