Our team of doctors will not recommend anything to our patients that has not been thoroughly tested and studied. The theory behind cryotherapy is that, by immersing the body in extremely cold environments for several minutes at a time, the body’s inflammatory processes will be stopped. For whole-body therapy, individuals will be exposed to temperatures of negative 200 to 300 degrees F for a few minutes.
While it is common for people to see some benefits after a single treatment, it is most effective when this therapy is used regularly. For example, it is not unusual for us to have athletes come to see us for cryotherapy multiple times per week.
