Clearing Perceptions About Cryotherapy What You Need to Know

Cryotherapy is characterized by the medical usage of extremely low temperatures. It has two types, general and partial.  

It involves subjecting the patient to chilled air having temperatures ranging from -100C to -160C for a period of 2-4 minutes. Liquid nitrogen is usually used for cryotherapy since it keeps the air dry which is essential for avoiding cold-related injuries and frostbites.    

Nowadays, both hospitals and even spa centres offer this service to you. Cryotherapy is indicated for the following conditions.

  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle strains
  • Immune system deficiency
  • Metabolism problems
  • Pain
  • Cellulite
  • Acne
  • Injuries
  • Muscle Soreness
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

Busting Myths Associated with Cryotherapy

People consider cryotherapy to be a trend instead of a genuine treatment method that will become obsolete soon. Considering that this procedure has been around for 40 years, it is safe to say that such assumptions have become null and void now. It works and there is sufficient proof available to support this claim.

The following are a few of the myths and misconceptions associated with cryotherapy.

Myth Number 1: Cryotherapy is Unsafe

Untrue! Cryotherapy is a safe procedure if it is applied as per its guidelines. To protect the clients from cold air inhalation and frostbites, they are asked to wear face masks, gloves, shorts and socks. Moreover, nitrogen isnt a poisonous gas. Feeling refreshed is probably the only danger you face when having this procedure.

Myth Number 2: Results Can be Seen After a Single Treatment

While even a single treatment has some benefits to offer, you cant expect to see maximum results without visiting the spa centre a few more times. It takes several treatments for patients suffering from muscle injuries to begin seeing the results.  

Myth Number 3: Cryotherapy Hasnt Been Scientifically Verified

Considering the relative newness of the cryotherapy procedure, there is much that we dont know about its effects. However, scientific studies performed until now have shown that it can accelerate healing of injuries, minimize muscles soreness and inflammation and enhance the production of white blood cells.  

Myth Number 4: Cryotherapy is Similar to Ice Baths

First, the duration of a cryotherapy session is five times shorter than an ice bath treatment. Secondly, liquid nitrogen is used in Cryo chambers, which is totally dry. Thus, cryotherapy doesnt cause cold-related injuries like frostbites which are a common occurrence in the case of ice baths.

Myth Number 5: Cryotherapy Treatment Can Make Me Sick

On the contrary, cryotherapy is known to enhance the immune system which can help you in fighting the symptoms of cold. People think that cold is caused by cold weather when they can only be caused by a bacteria or a virus. During winters, people usually stay indoors where the warmer climate becomes a breeding ground for germs. Bacteria and viruses dont like the cold temperatures.

Myth Number 6: Cryotherapy is Unsuitable for People Suffering from Claustrophobia

Again untrue! Cryo chambers are available in all sizes and some of them are quite roomy. Moreover, the chamber doesnt cover your head. So, the chances of an episode of claustrophobia happening during a cryotherapy session are very remote.

Myth Number 7: Cryotherapy is Very Expensive

Upon its inception, cryotherapy might have been expensive, but it has become quite affordable nowadays. A single treatment is priced at $80 by Cryo Australia while the package deals cost anywhere from $160 to $600.

One reason for this misconception is the use of cryotherapy by celebrities. Celebrities that are known users of this treatment method are Hugh Jackman, Shaquille O Neal, Tony Robbins, Floyd Mayweather, Kobe Bryant, Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, Lebron James, Demi Moore, Jennifer Anniston and many others.

Myth Number 8: Only Professional Athletes Can Benefit from It

All the professional athletes in the world are humans just like us. Thus, if cryotherapy can be beneficial for treating spasms, pain and muscle soreness in athletes and removing cellulite in celebrities then it can do the same for us too. However, only professional athletes should undergo more than one treatment a day.

Myth Number 9: Cryotherapy Only Has a Placebo Effect

The human mind remains an uncharted territory. Placebo has been known to help people find relief from psychological and physical symptoms. However, this is not what happens in cryotherapy. This treatment method can prove to be beneficial for conditions like arthritis, cellulite, muscle soreness and pain.

Myth Number 10: Cryotherapy Works Like Magic

Cryotherapy isnt magic. Dont expect all your problems to magically go away after undergoing treatment. Cryotherapy is simply a tool for getting your desired results. To get rid of cellulite, you will have to drink lots of water, eat healthy foods and do a regular workout besides getting cryotherapy treatments.


Lebron James has maintained that he has used cryotherapy for reducing pain and muscle soreness after intensive workouts. Moreover, this treatment has helped him in recovering after undergoing surgery. Lebron lists the short duration of the treatment as its best feature as it makes it a lot less time-consuming.

Floyd Mayweather undergoes this treatment both before and after his fights. Safe to say that he likes it a lot!

Kobe Bryant recovered from his knee surgery in 2011 by using cryotherapy. Lakers went out of their way to ensure that their MVP got the treatment he needed since the device used for the cryotherapy treatment had to be imported.
