Cryotherapy is an innovative medical treatment method. It involves the targeted use of low temperatures to heal health problems. The body or specific areas of the body are exposed to extreme cold conditions for a limited period of time.
One of the best-known applications of cryotherapy is whole-body cryotherapy, in which the patient is placed in a special cold chamber or cabin for a short period of time. The extremely low temperatures range from -110 °C to - 160 °C. These cold conditions stimulate the body to produce a natural reaction that leads to the release of endorphins and the reduction of inflammation.
