If you could improve the quality of people’s lives would you? Well the folks at Cryo-Wellness of America think they can. Cryo-Wellness of America is a new kind of Pain Management Company using Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC). Since opening on February 12, 2018, feedback from clients has shown that using this new kind of cold therapy has a positive impact on relieving joint pain, aiding in recovery from sport’s participation and even post-surgical recovery. Individuals also notice they experience a deeper, more restful night’s sleep. Some clients have cited becoming less reliant on prescription medication.
The first Cryo-Chamber, was constructed in Japan by Dr. Yamauchi in 1978, to treat rheumatoid arthritis. It has been used successfully in Europe for more than 30 years in the treatment of various inflammatory disease processes , and is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. So what is it? WBC involves exposure to extreme sub-freezing temperatures in a specially designed chamber consisting of two rooms, a Pre Chamber cooled to -76 F, and a Main Chamber cooled to a minimum of -164 F. The short 3 minute session stimulates the body’s natural response to decrease inflammation, pain, and spasms. In his book Power from the Cold, Dr. Papenfuss refers to WBC “as a short-lasting physical therapy with a long-lasting effect”.
Cryo-Wellness of America hopes to add to the evidence based research on cold therapy and is currently organizing a pilot study to examine the “Effects of Whole Body Cryotherapy on Sleep, Pain, Mindfulness and Anxiety”. The study is being conducted in co-operation with Dr. Jennifer Scheid and Dr. Nicole Chimera of Daemen College. To participate in the study or for more information contact James Kenney Ed.D, Vice-President and Director of Research, or Capt. (Ret) Daniel Lang BSN, RN., Director of Member Services.
