Cryotherapy for Arthritis Pain
See For Yourself.
How Does Cryotherapy Help With Arthritis Pain?
Cryotherapy is a modern high-tech alternative to traditional “ice baths” but with more benefits, less discomfort, and none of hassle!
Extremely cold temperatures stimulate receptors in your body (the same receptors affected by arthritis pain).Your brain responds by sending messages that cause blood to rush into treated area, bringing oxygen and nutrients. This is known as vasoconstriction.
As your cryo treatment finishes, blood is pumped vigorously (a process known as vasodilation) throughout the body, resulting in the rush of energy our clients with arthritis love.
Additionally, depending on your diet and fitness level, you’ll burn up to 500-800 calories in the hours after your treatment.

The °CRYO Penguin localized cryotherapy system provides focused cold therapy where you need it most. Many clients with arthritis pain combine localized cryo with whole-body cryo for even faster, better results.
