Whole Body Cryotherapy – Frost Treatment
Treatment with frost i.e. cryotherapy is a relatively new method in which the patient's body is exposed to extremely low temperatures. Spine, joints, cellulite, or psoriasis, these are just some of the areas where this treatment has surprisingly good results. The whole body cryotherapy involves a short-term stay (up to 3 minutes) in the so-called cryo chamber, with optimal healing-rehabilitation temperatures up to -110°C. After leaving the cryo chamber, the second, approximately fifteen-minute stimulation phase is based on light aerobic exercise. For example activity on a stationary bicycle, treadmill or other exercise devices.
The Carlsbad Clinic, as the only one in Karlovy Vary, offers the whole body cryotherapy, which takes place in three separate closed chambers, where the patient is exposed to temperatures of up to -110°C under the close supervision of a specialist.
Positive Effects of Cryotherapy
The Beneficial effect of frost on the human organism stems from the fact that only preprocessed dry air, completely free of moisture, can be found in the cryo chamber. Thus, the internal body temperature is not reduced at all, but only its surface is cooled, resulting in enormous peripheral congestion and pain relief, acceleration of the metabolism and healing processes.
The effect of frost is also a radical increase in hormone levels to suppress inflammatory reactions, stiff muscles are released and even long-term pain disappears for many hours, including back pain and pain in the musculoskeletal system.
Immediately after leaving the cryo chamber you will experience a pleasant feeling all over your body, all joints will move freely and the pain perception will be reduced for a few hours. Depending on the number of procedures followed, the reduced pain, or even painlessness, may persist for a longer period (up to several months).
The cryo stimulation cure should include at least ten or more procedures in the shortest possible time period to achieve the best results.
