Cryotherapy: new horizons in rehabilitation

8.16.2023 0

In our difficult present, when the consequences of military actions can have a significant impact on the physical and psychological health of people, innovative technologies are appearing that help to return to a full life. One such method is cryotherapy, a procedure with the use of extremely low temperatures, which is deservedly gaining popularity in the rehabilitation of military and civilian victims of war. Let’s find out how cryotherapy can help people recover who are looking for ways to get back to full recovery and an active lifestyle.

Cryotherapy: a general overview of the method

Cryotherapy is a modern method of physiotherapy based on the use of ultra-low temperatures – usually in the range from -110°C to -160°C – for a positive effect on the body. This method is becoming more and more common in restoring the health of people who have experienced the consequences of military actions.

The essence of cryotherapy

The main idea of ​​cryotherapy is the short-term effect of very low temperatures on the body in order to cause useful reactions in it. This method helps to improve health and ensure faster recovery after various types of injuries and wounds.

Mechanisms of action

How does it work? Cryotherapy affects the body in several ways:

  • Reducing inflammation: low temperatures reduce the release of inflammatory mediators, which reduces inflammation in the affected tissues. The body more easily restores and heals tissues;
  • Pain reduction: cryotherapy blocks nerve signals and reduces the sensitivity of receptors, which helps to reduce pain;
  • Acceleration of tissue regeneration: the application of cold increases blood circulation to the affected areas, which provides them with oxygen and nutrients for faster recovery.

Application methods

Cryotherapy can be carried out in different ways:

  • Local cryotherapy: the application of cold directly to specific areas of the body that need a therapeutic effect. This method is very effective for the treatment of injuries, inflammation, as well as for pain relief and acceleration of tissue recovery;
  • Cryosaunas: the procedure takes place in a special cryochamber for a general regenerative effect. It can be performed with full immersion (with the head) or neck, depending on individual needs and doctor’s recommendations.

Advantages of cryotherapy in rehabilitation

During cryotherapy, a special device delivers cold to the whole body or its individual areas. This results in a vascular response that improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, helping to reduce swelling and inflammation. Start of form  

Reduction of edema

After injuries and operations, swelling of the affected parts of the body occurs. Thanks to cryotherapy, the penetration of liquid into the intercellular space is reduced. This effect helps reduce swelling and improve patient comfort during rehabilitation.

Improvement of blood circulation

One of the key factors in recovery from injuries is improving blood circulation to the affected areas of the body. Cryotherapy promotes vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels), and then their expansion (vasodilation), which provides improved blood flow to damaged tissues. Increased blood circulation contributes to a faster supply of oxygen and nutrients, as a result of which tissues are actively regenerated.

Increased mobility

Limited mobility is a frequent consequence of injuries and operations. Cryotherapy helps reduce pain and muscle contraction, allowing the patient to move more freely and perform rehabilitation exercises with greater ease. In turn, the result of improved mobility is increased blood circulation, a more harmonious load on muscles and joints, and a general improvement in the quality of life.

Cryotherapy for psychological well-being

In addition to physical benefits, cryotherapy also has a positive effect on the psychological state of people who have become victims of war. Cryotherapy procedures help reduce stress and anxiety, and support general mental stability. Short-term contact with extreme cold during cryotherapy promotes the release of endorphins – natural antidepressants and “hormones of happiness”. This can improve your mental state, helping you maintain a positive attitude even during difficult periods of rehabilitation. Cryotherapy also calms the nervous system and reduces anxiety. The procedure relaxes, relieves the mind, helps relieve tension and fatigue. Cryotherapy can be a useful adjunct to psychological support for military and civilian casualties, helping to maintain psychological balance and well-being during the recovery process at the hormonal, emotional, and anatomical levels.
