The studies listed below are a mixture of directly correlated studies, as well as indirectly correlated studies that have to do with the effects of physiological responses the body has to our therapies. enjoy!
Time-Course of Changes in Inflammatory Response after Whole-Body Cryotherapy Multi Exposures following Severe Exercise
Overall, the results indicated that the WBC was effective in reducing the inflammatory process. These results may be explained by vasoconstriction at muscular level, and both the decrease in cytokines activity pro-inflammatory, and increase in cytokines anti-inflammatory.
The effect of prolonged whole-body cryostimulation treatment with different amounts of sessions on chosen pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines levels in healthy men
It seems that the most advantageous sequence was the series of 20 cryostimulations due to the longest lasting effects of stimulation after the completion of the whole series of treatments.
Whole-body Cryostimulation as an Effective Way of Reducing Exercise-Induced Inflammation and Blood Cholesterol in Young Men
The main finding of this study was that a series of 10 sessions of whole body cryostimulation significantly reduced the inflammatory response induced by eccentric exercise. The lipid profile was also improved, but there was no effect on energy expenditure during the exercise.
Can short-term exposure to extremely low temperatures be used as an adjuvant therapy in the treatment of affective and anxiety disorders?
Cyclic short-term whole-body exposition to extremely low temperatures significantly reduced the severity of depressive and anxiety symptoms and increased the life satisfaction.
Inflammation, But Not Telomere Length, Predicts Successful Ageing at Extreme Old Age: A Longitudinal Study of Semi-supercentenarians
This study showed that over a very wide age range from 45 to 115 years, including unprecedentedly large numbers of the extremely old, inflammation is an important driver of ageing that might be amenable to future pharmacological intervention. Accordingly, designing novel, safe anti-inflammatory or immune-modulating medication has major potential to improve healthy lifespan.
Cryotherapy in inflammatory rheumatic diseases: A systematic review
Local cryotherapy is a cheap and very well-tolerated thera- peutic option, which can be easily performed at patient’s home. In the future, it could contribute to reduce the eco- nomic burden and iatrogenicity related to the treatment of 495 arthritic patients, especially for the elderly.
Whole-body Cryotherapy in Athletes
According to the available literature, WBC is not harmful or detrimental in healthy subjects. The cold stimulation shows positive effects on the muscular enzymes creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase, and it should be considered a procedure that facilitates athletes’ recovery.
Effects of Whole-Body Cryotherapy in Comparison with Other Physical Modalities Used with Kinesitherapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis
The demonstrated results showed positive effects of a two- week rehabilitation program for patients with RA, regardless of the type of physical procedures.
