Whole Body Cryotherapy

What Is Whole Body Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is less complicated than you think. Cryo comes from the Greek word meaning icy cold, which is why many refer to cryotherapy as “cold therapy.” During cryotherapy, the body is briefly exposed to extremely low temperatures, causing the body to direct blood flow away from your extremities and to your organs. After your treatment, your body then re-circulates your blood. This helps you recover faster, treats aches and pains, and can burn up to 800 calories per session!

Legacy Medical Centers is Pittsburgh’s leading provider of cryotherapy for athletic recovery; pain management; and overall health, beauty, and wellness.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a sophisticated strategy of cold treatment including three minutes of skin exposure to temperatures between – 200°F to – 250°F.

While this methodology was initially used in Japan in 1978 to treat rheumatic diseases, studies conducted in the course of last two decades and have established cryotherapy as an effective treatment for reducing symptoms of pain and inflammation associated with various chronic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Pain Relief & Increased Athletic Performance

Cryotherapy targets and decreases inflammation and pain in the body by constricting blood vessels. Whether pain or inflammation is keeping you from your favorite activity or hobby such as sports, biking, running, or gardening — or if you are simply finding yourself less active and more irritable due to chronic debilitating pain and inflammation — then cryotherapy is your answer.
