Cryotherapy is the use of low temperatures in medical therapies. It is used to treat a variety of benign and malignant tissue damage, medically called lesions. The term "cryotherapy" comes from the Greek cryo (κρύο) meaning cold, and therapy (θεραπεία) meaning cure. Cryotherapy has been used as early as the seventeenth century.

The main goal is to decrease cell growth and reproduction (cellular metabolism), increase cellular survival, decrease inflammation, decrease pain and spasm, promote the constriction of blood vessels (vasoconstriction), and when using extreme temperatures, to destroy cells by crystallizing the cytosol, which is the liquid found inside cells, also known as intracellular fluid (ICF). The most prominent use of the term refers to the surgical treatment, specifically known as cryosurgery. Other therapies that use the term are whole-body cryotherapy and ice pack therapy, coolant sprays, ice massage, and whirlpools, or ice baths. When used to treat injuries at home, cryotherapy refers to cold therapy with ice or gel packs that are usually kept in the freezer until needed.Cold therapy is one of the tried and tested remedies for managing pain and swelling. Cryotherapy is the "I" component of R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, and elevation). This is a treatment recommended for the home care of many injuries, particularly ones caused by sports.

Used by a number of elite athletes including professional bodybuilders, Olympic athletes, UFC fighters, and even professional football players, cryogenic chamber therapy is building a massive reputation as one of the most effective new recovery therapies currently available. Growing ever more in popularity and receiving a lot of publicity particularly from celebrity sports professionals, WBC (Whole Body Cryotherapy) is fast becoming more accessible to the general public as more and more clinicians are adding chambers to their practices to use as a more effective alternative to cold water immersion or ice packs. Pain Solution has a cryogenic chamber in their clinic aswell as having a mobile Van fully equip with a cryogenic chamber.

Bodybuilders love cryogenic chamber therapy because it means quicker recovery speeds. They can therefore lift heavy weights more often. When you can prevent DOMS and quickly alleviate other aches and pains, that means you can train harder and more often with less downtime.

Whole body cryotherapy (WBC) was invented in Japan in the late 1970’s, but only started to gain recognition as a sports therapy within the last few years. There are now clinics opening up everyday all over the country.

Pain Solutions are one of the first in the country and one of the few to have a Mobile Cryotherapy Van that is fully equip with a chamber and state-of-the-art equipment.

How does a cryogenic chamber work?

Once you’re stood inside the cryogenic chamber, a burst of nitrogen gas is released every thirty seconds or so. The freezing gas surrounds your entire body. This causes your blood to rush away from your limbs and towards your core in an attempt to warm and protect your vital organs. It puts your body into survival mode, and fills your blood up with oxygen. When you step out of the chamber, your blood immediately rushes back to your arms and legs and you’ll feel a warm again. You may experience a tingly sensation. That means that the therapy is working.

If you suffer from a sports injury, whether it’s either a contusion or a strain, the blood running to the core and then coming back to the limbs with oxygenated blood helps to redevelop your bodies injured cells. This in turn helps you heal much faster.
